Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
I got my Ostabelt today, I’m excited! Packaging looked great.
I have young children who love to play and be chased by me. When I got my ostomy bag, everything changed. I couldn’t have my kids climbing all over me and I had to be very cautious about my bag getting snagged. However now that my bag is securely placed in the Ostabelt, I barely have to worry at all! Those tickle battles are back and I can enjoy every moment I have playing with my kids.
The Ostabelt let me feel like myself again after a long time. It holds my ostomy bag in so securely that I barely even feel itand sometimes almost forget that it’s there. I can go for jogs, exercise and enjoy the outdoors without worrying about it. It truly has improved my quality of life. I would recommend the Ostabelt to every person with an ostomy bag.
I am a dancer and it is within dancing that I lose myself and let go of all life’s worries. When I got the ostomy bag I was crushed because all my dancing had to involve such careful movements and I couldn’t enjoy the experience. However with the Ostabelt, I feel free again and I can once again lose myself in my dancing without worrying about my bag. It truly has been life changing and I don’t know how I could have coped without the Ostabelt.
Thank you Ostabelt.
Your forever customer Samantha
I play hockey on the school team and I have been playing for years. My team mates are my best friends and when I got sick I started missing out on all the games and I missed hanging out with my buddies so much. When I got the ostomy bag it was very hard to play such a rough aggressive sport with such a delicate bag. I felt like I had lost my whole identity and became very depressed. Than I heard about the Ostabelt and decided to try it. It has made a huge difference. I can go back to playing my favorite sport, hang out with my buddies, and be part of the team that I love. The Ostabelt protects my bag and I don’t have to be as worried. Life changing, truly.
The Ostabelt works amazingly. I have had an ostomy bag now for three years. Its extremely uncomfortable when I exercise and walk too much. I always felt as if it was not secure but when I tried the Ostabelt, it sure fixed that problem. I’ve been able to move more freely and exercise ten times harder since using the Ostabelt. It secures my ostomy appliance in place so it enables me to move freely without worries.

Ostabelt is an innovative stylish belt system dedicated to help ostomy patients return to an active lifestyle they desire. Created with the most durable and breathable material, the Ostabelt is guaranteed to provide comfort and protection around the clock. With a simple opening of a zipper, you will be able to empty out pouch contents effortlessly. Our system works with a one-piece or two-piece flange to provide a universal fit.
The Ostabelt has a unique application where the flange is inserted through the hole opening on the back of the belt. The flange then appears in the inside zippered pouch compartment where the ostomy bag will attach.
The belt is then positioned around your waist where it is locked in place using velcro, which are on both ends of the belt. The elastic loops are there in case there is any slack remaining from any adjustment due to your ostomy waist size.
The ability to expand is one of Ostabelt’s main advantages. As the ostomy bag fills, the lycra material expands outward. At this point, the Ostabelt maintains its comfort and protection from any possible leaks that can occur. Once the bag is emptied, the Ostabelt will retain its original form and will shrink back to its original size.
Two-piece ostomy bag system: No, Once you attach your flange adhesive to your skin and clip in your ostomy bag ring; your Ostabelt stays between the ostomy ring clip and the flange.We have designed a zipper at the bottom of your pouch compartment to provide easy access to empty your bag without removing the belt.

When a leak occurs, the first step is to make sure you find the nearest bathroom in order to remove and replace any leaking appliances. Ostabelt protects the flange from being torn from the stoma site as it holds the ostomy appliance close to the body. In the event of a leak, Ostabelt will enclose the contents of the bag while buying time in order to change out the appliance and/or flange.

Your ostomy bag can be attached either sideways or straight down. A lot of patients ask, how does it work being sideways? Having your bag sideways allows you to keep the bag from snagging on items as well as hanging down for others to see.
As the bag gets filled, contents move and shift to the ziplock portion of your bag with regular movement. With the feel of your hand, you will be able to tell if you need to empty or dispose the ostomy appliance. Having your bag at the side also prevents accidents that result in leaks and prevents the flange from snagging and ripping off your skin when placed in an Ostabelt.
