OSTOMY AND HERNIA
Living with an ostomy has a great impact on a person’s everyday life. An ostomy challenges a person’s social life, body image and sense of self-esteem.
An abdominal surgery where the large abdominal muscle is cut may also increase the risk of getting a hernia resulting in much inconvenience: improper fit of ostomy appliances, risk of leakage, negative body image and appearance, discomfort, pain and sense of gravity etc. With or without surgery, this common condition requires special attention and support.

Furthermore, we make sure to design our Corsinel ostomy care products with the individual body anatomy in mind. Our ostomy underwear, tubes and belt products must fit to make a difference and be used. Therefore, Corsinel ostomy care products are made in a 4-way-stretch material that will always adapt to your specific body contour. This unique flexibility also ensures that Corsinel ostomy products support the stoma or hernia without obstructing stoma flow.
As we are well aware that the Corsinel ostomy and hernia products will often be worn all day long and possibly at night, the breathable products are designed with comfort in mind. We want our ostomy care products to be wearing aids, addressing and easing challenges in your daily life.

Targeted compression and fixation means that our products are designed to provide the necessary compression and fixation exactly where needed. By controlling compression on the scar tissue, the healing process advances faster and patient comfort is hightened. The compression zones are specially designed into each product based on indication.
For optimum healing, the surgery site needs rest. That is why our products are designed to guarantee no seams in the wound or scar area and at any other critical sites of the applied area. This provides maximum skin friendliness and prevents pressure marks, as well as irritation of skin and tissue.
When it comes to medical textiles and post-op garments, no size fits all. That is why we base all our sizes on three parametres; statistical body knowledge, comfort stretch measurements and extensive knowledge and experience with the combination of knitting methods in different materials. The combination of these 3 parameters defines our size defintion, ensuring perfect fit at all times.
