Bowel Irrigation / Rectal Catheter Products

Runfold Plastics bowel irrigation systems and rectal catheters are used for anal irrigation, which is also known as rectal irrigation or trans-anal irrigation, and help provide easy, quick, effective, hygienic and reliable bowel management. Our bowel irrigation systems and catheters are used for anal irrigation and bowel management as treatment for bowel dysfunction for people who have conditions that include:

  • Neurological disorders: spina bifida, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, brain tumours, spinal cord injury or multiple sclerosis.
  • After surgery for treatment of rectal prolapse, colitis or compaction.
  • In cases of reduced tissue elasticity after multiple births or in elderly people.
  • Psychological /psychiatric disorders.
  • Slow transit constipation or obstructed defaecation symptoms.

Trans-anal irrigation with warm water successfully empties the bowel to the splenic flexure, allowing no further irrigation to take place for 24-48 hours, which helps improve the quality of life for the patient.

Runfold Plastics is a leading manufacturer of Bowel Irrigation catheters and can provide full product design and application solutions using a specialist plastic processing system. We assemble and pack the bowel irrigation products in our cleanroom.

Working closely with distributors we find the best delivery solution and catheter design. Our years of experience and knowledge of design, application and market awareness makes Runfold Plastics an ideal company to partner with.

  • System design – Full delivery system from water bag, control system to catheter.
