PERISTEEN IRRIGATION SYSTEM HOLDER
Our client no longer has proper function in her bowel. In order to defecate, she has
to carry out a process of irrigation using a Peristeen system. The pump and dial controls need some hand strength to operate, and
our client's joints are also prone to dislocation, so she was unable to make proper use of the equipment.
The devices made
allow the client to have the equipment held across her knees and to operate it using pressure across her whole hand rather than having
to grip and squeeze.
Two devices were made - the one in perspex which can be gripped between the knees, and the shaped metal
version which can be gripped by moving the knees slightly apart.
Use of these devices gives the client greater freedom and privacy.
