An IRB-approved mixed method academic study, conducted by the University of South Alabama, examines ostomy-related complications and their impact on quality of life for ostomates. The study finds that leakage and parastomal skin irritation are common ostomy-related complications that have statistically significant impacts on the quality of life for patients following ostomy surgery.
Wearing a STEALTH BELT® support garment significantly reduces the frequency of leakage as compared with patients wearing other types of ostomy belts or those not wearing a support garment.
The Study Further Finds That Reducing the Frequency of Leakage Has a Statistically Significant Impact on Quality of Life:
It is clinically relevant that Stealth Belt support garments reduce the incidence and frequency of parastomal skin irritation as compared with patients wearing other types of ostomy belts or those not wearing a support garment.
