Overview of benefits
Rectal Irrigation (also known as Trans-Anal Irrigation) is a common method of bowel management and is an effective way of managing chronic constipation, bowel dysfunction and faecal incontinence.
Rectal irrigation involves instilling water into the bowel via the anus using a soft cone. The water fills the lower part of the bowel and subsequently empties, carrying the contents of the colon into the toilet with the water.

Modern medical care products which are gentle on the skin provide colostomates with a high degree of safety and comfort. However, the lack of control over stool discharge and gas emissions, as well as the associated aesthetic and psychological factors, continue to represent a great burden for many patients.
The method of flushing the intestine, also called irrigation, is recommended for colostomates in order to facilitate control over stool discharge. This makes it possible for such patients to reduce their usual care needs to a minimum and also benefit from considerably better comfort, discretion and quality of life, not to mention maximum independence.
