Bowel care is very personal and also very important to your health. This video highlights how a person with a spinal cord injury at C7 uses adaptive equipment to perform his own bowel management. The items he uses can be found online or with the help of an occupational therapist.

Bowel equipment used in this video include: commode chair/bench, elevated toilet seat, bidet, sanitary wipes, lubricant, suppository, suppository inserter/applicator, dil stick, adaptive toilet paper wiper.

Created by Craig Hospital and the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, this video highlights functional tools or adaptive equipment available for people with hand weakness who would like to gain more independence in their daily activities.
