Loss of Mobility
Loss of mobility, both temporary and permanent, can be painful, frustrating and often times make it difficult to perform everyday functions that were once very easy, such as going to the bathroom. Partial or total mobility loss may result from conditions such as arthritis, broken bones, Dupuytren's disease and hernia and rectal surgery. Over 70 million Americans have some form of arthritis or joint inflammation, often translating to a serious debility. In addition, Dupuytren's disease, an abnormal thickening of tissue beneath the skin in the palm of the hand, may eventually limit movement.
The Swash allows people suffering from conditions such as these to regain the comfort and dignity of using the toilet by themselves.
Benefits for Hemorrhoid Sufferers
Hemorrhoids are veins that swell and protrude around the anus. The symptoms may include a painful burning sensation, itching, swelling and even bleeding. As many as 10 million Americans suffer from hemorrhoids; most of them between the ages of 45 and 65, but over half the population will experience them at some point in their lives. The good news is you can now find hemorrhoid relief without resorting to surgery!
The Swash eliminates the need for abrasive toilet paper when using the toilet. The warm water jet and warm air dryer clean and dry the user, providing great relief from symptoms such as tenderness and irritation. Whereas sufferers with traditional toilets often dread going to the bathroom and try to wait as long as possible (causing further complications), Swash owners may actually look forward to using the toilet because it is a pleasant, soothing experience.
Relief for Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Incontinence
Skin care is very important for incontinent patients and those with IBS; however, cleaning with toilet paper or soap can dry and irritate anal tissue. The Swash allows multiple washings without the increased skin abrasion and irritation caused by other methods.
Help for the Discomfort of Crohn's Disease
Crohn's disease causes inflammation and irritation in various parts on the gastrointestinal tract. With this condition can come a frequent need to use the toilet. The Brondell Swash allows complete and gentle cleansing after each bowel movement without harsh, abrasive toilet paper.
