StomaGear - StomaShield Stoma Guard

PRESS RELEASE: StomaGear introduces new and improved ostomy guard and clothing solution.

KATY, TEXAS (June 2, 2014): StomaGear, Inc., an innovator in ostomy protection and ostomy clothing solutions, will bring to market an improved guard on June 18th.

The new StomaShield material retains the lightweight properties of the previous StomaGear shield designs, but offers improved impact resistance and durability. Additionally, the shape of the shield provides greater clearance for the stoma allowing the output to channel more easily into the lower portion of the bag, even while sitting. The new shape will remain discreet, providing ample clearance without increasing the profile of the shield itself. 

People with an ostomy have a surgically-created opening (or stoma) for the discharge of bodily waste, commonly as a result of certain cancers or bowel disease. A majority of stomas are located within 2 inches above, or below, the waistline. The placement of the stoma often causes clothing and seat belts to interfere with the stoma, causing discomfort, and the bag, constricting the output. Without ostomy protection, everyday functions can be a significant challenge. 

“Living with an ostomy can be a very challenging experience,” said Brian Hakel, Founder and President of StomaGear, Inc. “After living with an ileostomy for 5 years and listening to so many other people with an ostomy, we realized that a large number of ostomy patients are in need of stoma protection and clothing solutions.”

StomaGear’s newest shield will be available for purchase on the StomaGear website at on June 18th.  The latest product will be showcased at the WOCN® Society's 46th Annual Conference June 22-25th for nurses to take a up close view.
