The SwimGARD is designed for those who want to feel secure in the water. The SwimGARD is a soft, strong, plastic sash that holds the drained and folded pouch. It is made as thin as possible, so that it is hardly noticeable under swimwear. The SwimGARD is not waterproof, but it is designed to hold the pouch and faceplate (flange) very close to the body, and will prevent the pouch or faceplate from becoming detached from the stoma area. The SwimGARD, which fastens with plastic Velcro, and is sized to fit the user's waist, sells for $37.95.
