Medical supplies online


  1. Ostomy/colostomy bag

This is a bag or pouch intended to collect waste that has been surgically redirected through an incision in the body called a stoma. Ostomy bags can be open or closed, two-piece or one-piece systems.

  1. Skin barriers

While the pouch is attached to the abdomen, a skin barrier is applied over and around the stoma to protect the skin from urine or stool output. Skin barriers can come in the form of topical ointments or creams, wipes, adhesive barrier rings, and more.  

  1. Stomahesive

Wafers or paste used to fill in and protect uneven skin surfaces next to an ostomy.

  1. Adhesive remover

Pads or wipes used to cleanse adhesive residue left on the skin when changing skin barriers or pouches.

  1. Deodorant

Ostomy deodorants such as DevKo Tablets are employed to control the odor of a reusable pouch and its contents.

  1. Irrigation

Irrigation supplies include tubes connected to the pouch in order to drain bags that are used for prolonged periods or at night.

  1. Belts

Ostomy belts are worn to secure the pouch in place so that the user can go about their day comfortably.


  1. Glucose meters

These devices allow diabetics to monitor their blood sugar levels regularly and accurately.

  1. Diabetes testing medical supplies online

Mainly test strips and lancets to draw and manipulate the small sample of blood that the glucose meter needs to provide blood sugar level readings.

  1. Intermittent

Intermittent catheters are temporarily introduced into the bladder through the urethra and removed once the flow of urine has ended.

  1. Foley

Also known as indwelling catheters, they remain inside the balder and are connected to a drainage at one end; at the other end is a balloon that can be inflated and deflated to keep the catheter from slipping out or to remove it, respectively.

  1. External

This is a male catheter that is placed over the penis like a condom and attached to a drainage bag. Contrary to the two types of catheters mentioned above, this does not consist of a tube inserted into the bladder, and is available in different shapes, sizes, and materials. However, it does have to be changed on a daily basis.

  1. Drainage bags

The bags attached to catheters that collect urine vary in size; smaller leg bags are taped to the leg and usually worn during the day to allow the freedom of movement. Larger bags are mostly used at night. In either case, the drainage bag must remain lower than the bladder at all times to keep urine from flowing back up.

Exam gloves
