The Stealth Belt is versatile and wearable for all activities and situations, whether they are sedentary or active pursuits. Normally, ostomy and urostomy pouches limit mobility, but the Steath Belt guarantees to provide comfort through activities such as water sports, swimming, dancing and walking, in addition to gymnastics, running, cycling and other extreme sports.

Because the Stealth Belt has a stretchy, zippered pouch compartment, the belt stays securely in place, allowing the ostomy bag to naturally fill within the compartment, according to the manufacturer. The pouch stretches as the bag expands, but reverts back to its original state after it is emptied. The zippered compartment on the Stealth Belt allows for easy access when cleaning, changing or emptying the ostomy bag. To perform the process, the user is only required to unzip the bottom of the pouch, releasing the ostomy bag for emptying. It may be necessary for users to rotate the bag on a two-piece appliance.
