The belt has a pocket on the inside into which the stoma bag is inserted. Because there is cotton fabric between the bag and the skin, it reduces the possibility of skin inflammation. The belt, additionally, holds the bag against the body and reduces the possibility of detachment. In the case of bag detachment, it stays in its place, as the pocket prevents it from slipping along the body and dropping out of clothing to the ground. While sleeping, the belt holds the bag to the body and prevents wrinkling and curling, which allows for a relaxed sleep.
