    Nobody uses these in the US but I hear Europeans do. Can't hurt to try, I'd be afraid of autonomic dysreflexia though. If he gets flushed, goosebumps, a headache or high blood pressure when using one-get it out quick!

    It is more of a European approach to the problem. Dysreflexia is one concern as well as making sure that the anus doesn't get a breakdown. I would be a little careful- if you try it really monitor the anus and also any dysreflexia.
