- The single use system has several unique features and for the first time allows bowel irrigation to be carried out in a hygienic, odor-free way on the bed
Ideal for people who:
- Would benefit from bowel management in bed or in a supine position
- Lack the mobility to use the toilet
- Have problems with balance
- Are unable to sit on the toilet for longer periods of time
An assessment is always carried out by the healthcare professional in order to identify suitability for irrigation and the right product for the individual needs.
Qufora IrriSedo Bed includes:

- 3000 ml collection bag
- Single-use catheters (three different diameter sizes: Ø12, Ø21, and Ø30)

How does the product work?
Qufora IrriSedo Bed irrigates simply using warm water via a rectal catheter, which is attached to the water bag and a collection bag.
Fill the water bag with lukewarm water.
Attach the catheter to the tube and the collection bag. The collection bag contains an integrated plug that fits into the catheter.
Water from the water bag is guided into the rectum by the catheter. With the collection bag fitted to the catheter, the plug ensures that the water stays in the rectum.
When the water has had time to work in the bowel, the plug is pulled out of the catheter. Water and faecal matter will flush into the collection bag.
This process can be repeated until the desired amount of water has been instilled and removed without having to remove the catheter.
Before use, always consult the ‘Instructions for use’ document delivered with the product.
We strongly believe that being as independent as possible has a positive impact on quality of life. The key to successful bowel irrigation is based on assessment, training and follow-up with the healthcare professional. Therefore, we want to support healthcare professionals with a product that will help achieve positive patient outcomes.
