Coloplast-OAS Healthy Lifestyle Exercise [3]

For the next segment of the workout video series, we are pleased to bring you 3 yoga videos that are suitable for ostomates.

Starting off in this video is Yin Yoga, a very slow form of yoga, low-impact and suitable for patients who are recovering from surgeries.

This is part of an exciting 12 video series in collaboration with ColoplastSG to promote active lifestyle and increase enjoyment of life.

*Remember to check with your doctor before starting a new exercise program, especially if you have any concerns about your fitness, haven’t exercised for a long time, have chronic health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes or arthritis.

Healthy Body, Healthy Peristomal Skin

In our next Patient and Healthcare Education Series, our speakers will share their insights on maintaining a healthy lifestyle with the right ostomy appliance-change routine and the types of exercises that are suitable for ostomates.

While it’s important to have a healthy body and healthy mind, we should not neglect our peristomal skin health. By taking care of your stoma with a good change routine and doing suitable exercises, there is a good chance you can reduce some of the problems you might otherwise have had in relation to leakage.
