One concern I have is the seat belt guard is going to concentrate the force from the seat belt during an accident instead of distributing it across your abdomen.

Hi Mike, that's a valid concern. The cushioning of these products tends to be pretty soft, so the impact of a seatbelt would simply be absorbed into the foam and on your skin - they will NOT protect your stoma from the force of an impact and are designed more for everyday comfort.

Stoma guards offer more protection from impact, but I don't believe anyone has studied their effectiveness in a crash. This would be an interesting study.
