To whom are these bottom wiping aid tools made for

The wiping aid tools are not meant for those patients who are totally immobile or have trouble visiting the bathroom.

They are meant for the following classes of people:

  • Obese
  • Handicapped
  • Disabled
  • Arthritis patients
  • Elderly
  • Anyone with short hands and not able to reach their bottom.

Failure to wipe your ass in the right way may lead to accumulation of faeacal material around your anal area. This leads to irritation and could also lead to accumulation of bacteria which would lead to an infection.

According to verywellhealth, people who do not wipe their butts well always find themselves going to the doctor due to UTIs as well as irritation and  pain around the private parts.

Incase you have a cut or are bleeding around your anal areas, you should avoid using these toilet aids as this could lead to more hurt and aggravation of the cuts.

There has also been a great debate on whether to wipe your butt using moistened wet wipes or tissue paper. While most people feel that wet wipes are better, there are those who want to still hold on the traditional tissue paper. I think it all depends on ones choices as long as what you choose does the job well, then continue using it.
