Peristeen is a transanal irrigation system for people who suffer from fecal incontinence and constipation. Using Peristeen minimizes the likelihood of involuntary bowel leakage and/or constipation.
Peristeen empties the bowel by introducing water into the bowel using a rectal catheter. It is performed while sitting on the toilet. The water stimulates the muscles in the bowel and flushes out the stool, leaving the lower half of the bowel empty. Peristeen empties the bowel so efficiently, that it prevents fecal incontinence and constipation for up two days.
Peristeen is an effective alternative to other bowel management methods. It can be administered either on your own or with assistance and enables you to decide when and where you want to empty your bowel. Used routinely, daily or every other day, it can help reduce the physical discomfort and worry that fecal incontinence and constipation bring.
