    Bidet seat with ENEMA function Lotus PureStream

    Does anyone have one of these? I know of toilet seats with the bidet function but it's the first time I see one that can give an enema.

    If it really works I am planning to get one.

    Thanks for posting this, JGNI. Any guesses as to how a non-invasive flow of water is able to penetrate through a tightened sphincter let alone make its way into the lower bowel? I like the idea but the mechanics escape me. I guess the sphincter is expected to relax/fatigue from the constant stream of water.

    What's their return policy?

    I am curious too but I think one of the reason it works is that from what I could gather from the canadian representative of the company, the enema stream is very very small in diameter, aerated and spinning (worldwide patent on a stream ...). Sitting in a relax state on a toilet, I think the sphincter does not offer that much resistance to something that is very small.

    Once installed and used, no return possible

    If I buy it, I will make sure to review it here.

    I do my own variation of an on-the-toilet enema by repeatedly inserting a 16" long, 14 Fr. hydrophilic urinary catheter connected to a 70cc syringe. This allows a depth that the Lotus PureStream cannot match -- at least I don't think it can. It's a labor intensive activity and I would love to find something simpler without having to get involved with the expense of a PIE machine. I doubt, however, that the Lotus is up to the task of managing an SCI neurogenic bowel.

    Doing exactly what you do with a hydrophilic urinary catheter too and that is why I am interested in the Lotus but skeptical like you. Will it cost me 750$ to get the answer? Maybe. Then I will sell it back to you ...

    JGNI, Any experience with "high-tech" enema kits like these? I haven't, but it might be worth investigating.

    I just learned that the opening length of the elongated seat is only 11.6" which is a bit of a deal breaker for me (man, I don't know if I could even pee in such a short opening).

    Looks very interesting. Maybe KLD can give us her thoughts.
    T6 complete (or so I think), SCI since September 21, 2003
