Q?

How to clean your belt?

A.

Even though your belt is made of super stretch and super strong Nylon Lycra, it is not recommended to place your belt in a washing machine as there are a few pieces that could catch on the inside of your machine.

We recommend hand washing your belt in warm or cold water.

Your sound suppressor can also be washed by hand but can be done in the washing machine if you prefer. We do however still recommend caution when doing so.

Q?

Does the StealthBelt offer parastomal hernia support?

A.

Yes, it does, not to the extent of a belt made specifically for hernia's, but the StealthBelt gives adequate parastomal hernia support if you start to wear it as early after surgery as possible. This is not a sure way of prevention, you must still follow your doctors guidelines on diet, exercise and heavy lifting.
