Renew Inserts help prevent Accidental Bowel Leakage*
Accidental Bowel Leakage (ABL), medically termed bowel or faecal incontinence, is the uncontrolled leakage of stool from the rectum. Renew Inserts softly and comfortably fit your body and seal the rectum from the inside to help prevent ABL. Renew Inserts provide reliable and discreet internal protection that give you the confidence to live a normal and active life.
Renew Inserts are soft, comfortable and easy to use*
Renew Inserts are made from soft, supple silicone that adapts to your body for a soft and comfortable fit. They are safe to wear day and night, and are expelled naturally with your next bowel movement. Renew Inserts, and the hygienic fingertip applicators used to insert them are single-use.
Award Winning Design
Renew Medical has developed and clinically tested the Renew Insert for 7 years in the US and Europe. The resulting product is unique in its combination of safety, effectiveness, comfort and ease of use.
The Renew Insert has been honored with a Silver Medal at the 2015 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA). According to the publication Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry, the MDEA competition is the medtech industry’s premier awards program.
The Renew Insert is also the recipient of a 2015 Look Good Feel Good Continence Product Award by the UK’s Association of Continence Advice and PromoCon.
Watch Ceris, our registered nurse, explain how it works
Hello, my name is Ceris.
Open your box of Renew Inserts and take out the Instructions for Use. This should have everything you need to get started, but let’s go through it together.
Renew Inserts come in two sizes, regular and large. If this is your first time using the Renew Insert, try the regular size. You can always switch to the large size if you experience leakage or loss of Insert at unexpected times.
Always wash your hands before handling the applicator.
There are two items inside: the Renew Insert is already placed on the applicator. Put your finger in, and remove it from the pack. You can see how the applicator is designed to angle the Insert into your body.
Let’s talk about your body for a moment. This model is a cross-section of your pelvic area. This is your anus, and this is your rectum. What you do is take your finger with the applicator on it and insert it right into your anus like this. See how it’s designed to fit right in there? Once the applicator touches your anus, withdraw it and the Insert softly seals inside.
Take a look at the Renew Insert. See how soft it is? It’s designed to be comfortable and fit the contours of your body. Most people don’t even feel it when it’s inside. You can see how the discs work to form a seal inside and out. It is designed to be expelled with your next bowel movement, or you can just pull on the bottom disc if you’d like to remove it.
There are various ways to place the Insert; some people squat, some people put one leg up on the toilet, others sit on the toilet and lean to one side. Use whatever method works for you. Once you’ve finished the insertion, throw away the applicator and wash your hands again.
Remember the Instructions for Use pamphlet? There is also a Frequently Asked Questions section. Of course, if your questions are not answered in this, contact us. We’re here to help.
