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.

To help you live your life the way you like, we have developed reliable products for hernia prevention and ostomy and hernia care. Our Corsinel products are developed in close cooperation with doctors, nurses and ostomates to ensure best performance, comfort and highest quality at all times.

Furthermore, we make sure to design our Corsinel ostomy care products with the individual body anatomy in mind. Our 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 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.

Different needs – different levels of support

As the need for support and compression varies from person to person, the Corsinel range is split into three levels of support: Light, Medium and Maximum.


Light Support garments are designed for fixation and light support of stoma pouch only (no hernia management/prevention).

  • Can be worn day and night
  • Provide discretion by creating a smooth appearance and are very useful when carrying out daily activities
  • Soft, breathable and flexible material for optimum comfort


Medium Support garments are designed for additional fixation and support of the stoma pouch or for hernia management/prevention.

  • Useful if the user needs discretion and additional support of his or her ostomy pouch during strenuous physical activity
  • An alternative in either hernia management or hernia prevention if high support is not recommended, or if the user does not tolerate maximum support well
  • Can be worn day and night
  • Look like normal underwear, but with built-in extra support in the hernia/stoma area to provide discretion, without restricting stoma flow or causing leakage
  • Soft, seamless, breathable and flexible material for optimum comfort 


Maximum Support garments are designed for hernia management or prevention, when maximum support and compression are recommended or preferred.

  • Generally, the first choice for hernia management or prevention, as these will provide the user with a superior level of support without restricting stoma flow or causing leakage. If the user does not tolerate maximum support well, medium support garments could be an alternative
  • Can be worn all day. If preferred, the garments can be used at night as well
  • Soft, seamless, breathable and flexible material for optimum comfort
