Freedom Wands Reviews: Toilet tissue aid you need and where to buy it

What is the freedom wand?

The freedom wand is a butt wiping aid that helps people who cannot reach their butts do so with ease. People with obesity, arthritis, short arms as well as other physical handicaps might not be able to wipe their bottoms with ease after visiting the toilet. The freedom wand is a soft device that is able to hold a tissue paper or wet wipe so that you can reach the perineal area. It is lengthy and has an extender just in case you need extra length.

Other than cleaning your butt, the freedom wand gives you freedom to also shave your legs and apply ointment without having to bother other people to come and help you do so. It is therefore a wand of freedom where you can do your private things without someone having to poke your nose and knowing what you are going through.

Out of all the bottom wiping aids for obese people that I have reviewed, the freedom wand is my personal best. At the hospice where I work, I have had to ask the management to buy only freedom wands personal hygiene device because they are not only versatile but also hygienic and help maintain the person’s dignity since they do not have to call for help to wipe their butts and at the same time, they do not have to walk around stinking like hogs.

As its name suggests, freedom wands give you freedom. One thing that I have noted about obese, handicapped and elderly is that they crave for freedom. It feels bad for someone to always be next to you when you want to bathe, eat, walk or even go to the toilet. With this wand though, these classes of people are able to get what they have been craving for–the freedom!

Who should use freedom wands tool?

Generally, anyone who has trouble reaching their bottom to wipe off the debris around the anal orifice because either of obesity, injuries or other physical deformities should get this toilet wand.

The freedom wand guys go ahead to list the following groups of people as candidates for their wiping aid tool:

  • Obese
  • Hip pain
  • Spinal injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Stroke
  • Paraplegia
  • Those who have gone through rotator cuff surgery

What I loved about it

The butt wand was able to hold washing sponge, ointment pad, shaver and butt wiping tissue or biodegradable wet wipes–this is a feature that you will never see with other self wipe tools.

It has the longest reach since it comes with a 6.5 inches head, 8 inches handle and 7 inches long extender. Again there is no other tool that can reach that far.

Good grip on whatever you place on the head and the release button is easy to use.

The bag is great when you want to carry the wand around.

The head was gentle soft, a thing that I was looking out for because I would never stand having my patients injured by a toilet wiping aid, would I?

What I did not like about it

Premium priced

Some customers complained that their freedom wands were weak and broke down after use for a short time.

How to use the freedom wand toilet aid for butt wiping, shaving, ointment smearing and bathing

  1. Butt wiping

You can use the wand for wiping your bottom. So this is how you need to do it

  • Attach the wand head to the handle if 14 inches is good for you. If not, add the extender to achieve 21 inches
  • Use the head to attach enough rolls of tissue paper or wet wipes
  • Reach out to your butt orifice and wipe clean
  • Remove the head from the butt after you have wiped well
  • Direct the head towards the toilet hole and release the tissue/wipes by pressing the push button

2. For shaving

If you want to shave unreachable body parts such as the legs, the wand is still great for this.

  • Attach the head to the handle and if that is not enough, add the extender for extra length
  • Attach the shaver so that it is held by the four fingers of the head
  • Reach out to your feet and shave away the hair you want to.
  • After you are done, remove it from the feet and use the release button to release the shaver

3.Ointment smearing

If you want to smear oil on your intimate parts or legs, do the following:

  • Smear oil generously on your ointment pad
  • Hold the pad using the four fingers
  • Smear oil on the desired parts
  • Release the pad using the push button.

4.Bathing

The wand can be used for scrubbing unreachable body parts like the back

  • Soap your body scrapping sponge generously
  • Hold the soaped sponge using the wand fingers.
  • Reach out your back and use pressure to scrub yourself
  • Release the sponge after use.

The freedom wand vs the bottom buddy

Other than the freedom wand, the bottom buddy is another popular butt wiping aid that is highly reviewed on amazon and caregiver circles. I however decided to carry out investigations on which is the best personal hygiene device between the freedom wand and the bottom buddy.

In my investigations, I asked myself what a physically handicapped person looking for a butt wiper would need. They would be looking for the following:

Length— Every person looking for a butt wand would be looking for something long and offers value to them so that they are able to reach their butts with ease. So, the longer the better.

Ability to hold tissue, wet wipes–there are those people who use tissue paper while others find the wet wipes to be better, hygienic and soft on their butts. So, the versatility of the toilet aid here is good for you.

Ability to shave their legs and any other place they are not able to reach because of the handicap–Other than using the personal hygiene tool for wiping their butts, people are looking for tools that will be able to shave off their legs, nether regions as well as help with applying ointment.

Durability— Of course, we are all looking for something that will last for long and therefore offer value for the bucks you bought it at.

Cost–The cost should be affordable. Not inhibitive.

Here were the results tabulated.

AssessmentFreedom wand
Bottom Buddy
Holds tissue?YesYes
Holds wet wipes?YesYes
Comes with shaver and length extender?YesNo
Comes with storage bag?YesNo
Length of butt wiper?21 inches11 inches

Clearly from the results, though the butt wand is rather pricey as compared to the bottom buddy, it is way more better as it provides better service, is more versatile and equally durable.

Testimonials I gathered from the hospice

After asking the management to get the freedom wand toilet aid tools and getting to have our patients use them for  a period of one week, I asked some of them to comment on how they found the wands. Were they any good for them? How would they recommend them to other people having reaching problems and this is what I got from them.

George Wachiuri says
Before using the freedom wand, I hated being escorted to the toilet everytime by these young caregivers who seemed as though they were on attachment at the hospice. And so, I always insisted on going there alone. But since I went through some hip surgery and bending is such a tall order, I would barely reach my anus and would end up with brown filthy hands or worse off smelling after failing to wipe. Of course my dignity was at stake and therefore the freedom wand was a dream come true.

Alice Wambui says
I love the freedom wand since other than using it with tissue, I can use it to scrape off hair growing on my feet which makes me seem as though am masculine. Before that, I had to buy creams or ask someone to help shave me off. Now, I do it on my own. Thanks for such a great product.

Trizah Wanja says
The only downside of the wand is that it breaks after a short while. It is somehow designed to just stop working after sometimes. Currently, I have used four after every two months, I ask for another. I do not know whether I use it wrongly or what is wrong. On the other hand, it is great for obese people like me who cannot reach their butts.
