Having a difficult time getting out of bed due to an injury or illness can be an emotional time for many reasons. When you have to go to the bathroom and can't move, you're put in the uncomfortable position. This is especially true if you or your patient have liquid or semi-liquid stool.
Fortunately there's a product to help with that, courtesy of Convatec. The Flexi-Seal FMS Kit is a device meant to contain incontinent patients with loose or semi-liquid stool who are also bedridden. The device safely and effectively contains and diverts fecal matter to a central location. It's also meant to stay away from wounds that could be in the area as well as keep the skin from being damaged, preventing any infections. The Kit works well as an alternative to other methods such as bed pans or underpads, as it uses a catheter in order to divert the matter to a collection bag.
Each system comes with one soft silicone catheter, one syringe and three collection bags. Each bag is able to hold up to 1,000 milliliters (cc's) of liquid.
