My name is Theresia Gerber, and I am a caretaker for the company Vitassist „Läb dehei“ („Live at home“) in Lenzburg. I work with many sick, old or handicapped people. During this activity, going to the toilet or not being able to do so is more than often a large issue. For men, it is not such a problem because they have a convenient urine bottle. But for women, it has always been a complicated matter. With the help of this great „Pibella“, a fantastic aid is now available for women. As a caretaker, I have had great experiences with it – especially with a completely spastic paralysed lady who unfortunately cannot move any extremities except her head. Lying down, she is able to urinate every day using Pibella, and without any strain on either her or my behalf. For me as a caretaker, it is very uncomplicated and easy to place the fine invention „Pibella – Comfort with a collectin bag“ between the the labia. The feedbacks from my patients are consistently good because they find it very pleasant. And because there are no pressure points or other unpleasant feelings. A further advantage is the fact that „Pibella“ is repeatedly reusable because it can be cleaned in a simple manner. The sheets also remain absolutely dry due to the precise handling of the system. It is impossible to use a bedpan for a spastic paralysed woman. Without „Pibella“, the lady would always have to urinate in diapers or painstakingly have to be put into another bed to use a toilet using the patient lift, which is very time-consuming and unpleasant for the patient because it causes pain more often than not. Therefore, we are all very grateful for the fact that „Pibella Comfort“ exists because no insurance company will pay for the significant extra-time used for relocation. This means that the patients would be forced to urinate in diapers. Even if these diapers are very good nowadays, it is still discriminating not to be able to urinate externally. Thanks to „Pibella“, the patients’ self-esteem is restored.
It is highly convenient that both Pibellas can be used either by oneself or by an assistant in a simple manner.
Personally, I always carry Pibellas with me in order to be prepared at all times. I CAN ONLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ALL WOMEN!
Kind regards and have a nice weekend
