Car seat belt protection

Clippasafe Bump Belt – This is a product made for pregnant women, but it may also be suitable for people with a urostomy. The Bump Belt’s seat pad fastens the vehicle seatbelt as normal, ensuring that the lap portion could possibly be positioned away from the stoma (depending on location). The Bump Belt’s elasticated flaps are then simply secured over the lap portion of the seatbelt.

Care4Car CarPoint Seat Belt Stopper – fits around the seat belt, and allows you to
pull out some slack so you can drive in comfort, without affecting the
operation of the seat belt.

Care4Car CarPoint Belt Clip – relieves seat belt discomfort which can be caused by the
seat belt rubbing.

We are often asked how to protect mattresses against occasional night-time leaks. We cannot recommend individual companies or their products, but you may find the following selection helpful.

    equipment, it is worth contacting them, as some do supply waterproof
