How does it work?
Peristeen empties the bowel by introducing water into the bowel using a rectal catheter. It is performed whilst sitting on the toilet. The water is then emptied from the bowel, along with the stool, into the toilet. The lower part of the bowel is emptied so efficiently that most users only have to irrigate every other day.
Used routinely, daily or every other day, Peristeen can help reduce the physical discomfort and mental worry of bowel leakage and constipation, making it easier to take part in social activities, go to work or travel.
The benefits of using Peristeen:
- Prevents bowel leakage and constipation for up to two days
- Enables you to decide when to empty your bowels.
- Lets you choose what time of day you want to irrigate, so it fits in with your lifestyle
- Improves quality of life
And that’s not all…
