Comfizz are pleased to announce their new stoma protection product.  They say - sometimes it is

wise to protect a stoma from unwanted forces such as contact sports, seat belts, jumping

dogs, boisterous toddlers, etc.  Even if an ostomate simply wants to lie on their tummy, the

Comfishield gives the protection an ostomate needs in the most comfortable way.

No straps  are required, simply Velcro the shield in place and go.  An ostomate has the freedom to

wear whatever garments they want with the Comfishield, but of course if an ostomate is doing

anything strenuous it is recommended they wear support to protect themselves from developing

a hernia.

For complete peace of mind, please contact Comfizz for up-to-date prices, and any new product

launch offers.  Please telephone 0113 266 2096, email or look at the

Comfizz website.
