Stoma Appliance Scheme Members - Support Underwear
Members of The Government's Stoma Appliance Scheme -
Are entitled to up to 6 boxers or brief underwear per year. These boxers and briefs are specifically, medically designed for the prevention &/or support of Parastomal Hernias.
What Is A Parastomal Hernia?
Between 30-50% of all Stoma sufferers will develop a Parastomal Hernia. A Parastomal Hernia - is a protrusion of the small intestine through the abdominal wall. This will show as a small to large lump near your stoma opening.
This lump can become quite painful and also lead to greater leaks of your stoma bag. Consequently the Government has approved this product on the Stoma Appliance Scheme.
Stoma Hernia Support Wear and our products have been approved by the government to supply hernia support boxers and briefs to Members of Stoma Appliance Scheme. We are also listed as a Supplier on Australian Council of Stoma Associations
