My name is Danielle and I am one of the creators of the Stomaspan. I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in 1984 before much was known about Crohn's. My worst fear had always been that some day I would require an ostomy.
In November of 2016 I had "the surgery". It has changed my life for the better. I named my stoma "Squirty McSquirtens" and she is now one of my best friends; she saved my life. My Stomaspan is my favorite accessory because it alleviates pressure on my stoma while wearing a seatbelt. If you are reading this you must have a stoma or know someone who does. If you use our Stomaspan the next time you are faced with the discomfort of a seatbelt it could become your go to portable accessory as well!
My ostomy is not fun but I am blessed to have it. Stay positive, laugh every day and have a blessed day!

Absolutely brilliant idea for ostomates.
I've been preaching and asking questions about this type of product for the past 63 years (yep, that's how long I've had an ileostomy)..............and you have it.
Terrific idea and I congratulate you and your vision.
Best of luck.

YES! This proved to be one of the most valuable pieces of medical equipment we found after our family member had to deal with an ileostomy. Not only does the StomaSpan protect the stoma, it allows room for the bag to expand. It's comfortable, and easy to use and store. We were so impressed, and have shared our experience with the Wound Care department at the hospital, and the staff on the surgical ward. We learned of it ourselves through online searches for medical supplies that would help us cope with the many life changes in dealing with a stoma, and the StomaSpan is on the top of our list for "best" support equipment available. It's awesome, and we are so thankful you developed it! We will do our best to spread the word -- it truly is a great product!

I have just ordered my second Stomaspan so I have one in each car. This is a wonderful help in travelling. I am recommending it to people I know who have to deal with travelling with a stoma.

I just purchased the Stomaspan and I love it! It is a quality product that is sturdy and compact. Easily fits any "seatbelt"
situation and can slide left or right depending on one's stoma site. Great product - quality construction.
