An improvement for all

Pibella in Gebrauch in der aarReha Schinznach

Pibella, an improvement for all!

One of our patients used Pibella during the period she was hospitalized in our hospital. We became interested and tested Pibella on 8 women. We first prepared and informed them about the use of the product, which took away much of the skepticism and fear. Our patients are hip- and knee TP patients, between 55-90 years of age. All patients used previously the bedpan. At first some older patients were a little uncomfortable placing the Pibella; however this was solved once they became more familiar with Pibella. After the patients started trusting the device, and finding out that it really works without leaking, our test patients embraced the product after only 2-4 uses; the oldest lady being 90 years…

After this test we immediately implemented Pibella in our daily care routine, and receive very positive reactions. Partly because of our own enthusiasm, and our detailed instructions to the patient, they now apply the system at the first time by themselves.

Advantages for our personnel: No spillage of urine, no need for lifting patient/carer…back does not get strained, Time saving, Patient becomes more independent (less need for caregiver), Ease of use, Everything stays dry, nothing spills, less hectic and stress, patient is more satisfied

Advantages for our patients: No pain (pressure) during use, compared to bedpan, stress free urination while lying, after a few times patient can do it themselves, ease of use, body and bed stays dry, less tiring then using bedpan, patient feels much better

Important points to use Pibella successfully: Caregivers need to know the instructions and pass this on, caregiver must be convinced of the product, to also convince the patient, patient should be informed first about the advantages of using Pibella, be patient when learning to use the device, retry after mishaps

We are convinced about this product and will use Pibella wherever possible in the future, as we had such positive experiences.

Empirical study recommends Pibella (University of Applied Sciences, St. Gallen, Switzerland)

Pibella@FHS

„Introducing the Pibella urination system to healthcare institutions is useful and desirable. This urination device is also suitable for pregnant women and outdoor activities.“

FHS St.Gallen – Recommend by the Institute for Applied Nursing Science at the University of Applied Sciences following an empirical study – 2010/11

Once the initial concerns are overcome, happiness prevails

KSB_Logo

The Pibella female urination device is convenient for nursing care. Once the initial concerns are overcome, happiness prevails – gone is the feeling of regret that women have never had the opportunity to become acquainted with this system a lot earlier. Especially in terms of nursing care, Pibella Comfort presents new opportunities: a urination system that makes the daily lives of both the patients and the nurses a lot easier – cleanly and without getting wet. I have tested the system myself and I am impressed. It takes some effort – at first I couldn’t let go and I was in doubt if it would work. – But it did! The patients at the hospital who were informed about Pibella couldn’t believe that the system hasn’t become a standard aid a long time ago!

I am absolutely convinced of this urination system because of the fact that its application is worthwhile – evident time saving, reduction of falls, cost savings and decisively more well-being for all patients. Further, the knowledge about Pibella is very important for nursing care at home, especially with regard to the ageing of the population – although this still remains a taboo subject.

I took Pibella Travel with me on my trip to Asia, and I travelled in a carefree manner.“

The female urinating device Pibella is a wonderful alternative

Pibella@inselspital

In terms of nursing care, Pibella definitely proves to be a wonderful alternative. A friend of mine brought my attention to Pibella and asked me – I am a nursing care expert at a surgical ward – if we could also include Pibella in our range of products. After observing the usage procedure on the Internet, I was immediately interested and therefore ordered one.

After receiving the product, I tested it and immediately realised that I felt secure using Pibella, despite the fact that one or two trials in an undisturbed environment are necessary. The small, anatomical docking orifice is perfect, even though this may be hard to believe at first. Equipped with this new knowledge, I visited all the team meetings of our six wards and showed Pibella to the nurses. It is now available in all our wards.

A majority of the nurses wanted to experience Pibella themselves, which led them to order one for their own private use. Due to their own enthusiasm, they were able to overcome any inhibition whatsoever and thus present Pibella to the patients as well as explain its advantages to them! Patients who use Pibella are very happy and grateful because they are able to relieve themselves in an independent, intimate and comfortable manner. They are glad that they do not have to use the cold and uncomfortable bedpan. Apart from the patient satisfaction, the nurses are now able to protect their backs during work – notably in the case of obese patients who do not have to be lifted anymore. Furthermore, only one nurse is now needed to assist a patient to relieve him- or herself – something that is normally impossible when using a bedpan. It is also important to mention the fact that the risk of falling is also reduced. From my point of view, I am really glad that I didn’t have to do without Pibella during my mountain trekking trip in Thailand! It is clear to me that Pibella is an ingenious product and a major achievement for women!

Thanks to Pibella the patients self-esteem is restored

Pibella Urinierhilfe bei Vitassist

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

Pibella offers an alternative to the bedpan

We know just how much the patients hate the bedpan, and that many actually drink a lot less or nothing at all in order not to have to use it. Pibella now offers an alternative to the bedpan.

Wonderful development

Pibella-Travel_pink-FUD

Many thanks for Pibella. It is a truly wonderful development. It only took two attempts in order to feel secure using Pibella. The third attempt proved to work perfectly. As I travel a lot, it is a relief not having to use a dirty toilet again. This is very nice for healthy people. I can imagine just how helpful it must be for bedridden women. It is great to know that there are people who invest so much time and energy in this project. I am much obliged to you! I will surely recommend Pibella to others.

Pibella is a real relief and improvement of comfort

Pibella Urinieralternative für Frauen imGesundheitszentrum Fricktal

„ The Internal Medicine and Surgery departments are using Pibella every once in a while. We only have few suitable patients that are bedridden and need to urinate in bed because we try to mobilize everyone.

Because of less effort and sleep interruptions, Pibella is a real relief and improvement of comfort. Also there is less disruption in multiple bed rooms.

For the patients that can benefit from Pibella, we use it. By now, preconception and inhibitions are gone and the product is being used on the different wards.

Pibella will be successful if the patient can relax and fully trust this product. Most times this is easy and sometimes this is a little more complicated.

We found that reasons for mishaps are that women are not relaxed or because of curiosity. We have more and more success stories now and I am confident this will spread further.

Richard Studer, Healthcare center Fricktal, Hospital Laufenburg, Switzerland

Less pain in bed

Pibella Urinieralternative für Frauen im Krankenhaus Muri

Pibella is a very advantageous for patients with back problems, adipose patients and elderly women that are confined to bed and have difficulty turning.

While using Pibella these patients have less pain and less hassle then when the bedpan is used. Because of the ease of use it is also very beneficial and a help during night shifts.

Important are clear instructions to the patient; depending on the person, the caregiver may have to help placing the device initially.

Often the bedpan is offered because of routine, and the staff is not yet very familiar with this new product, so this needs to change.

Thanks to Pibella, a bedridden woman can finally get rid of the uncomfortable bedpan.

Ruth Engeler, Care manager, Kreisspital für das Freiamt (Hospital), Muri, Switzerland

A blessing and a relief

Pibella Comfort Female-Urination-Device for bedridden woman

“Because of an accident I was confined to hospitals and bed for several months. Besides all pains and worries, the use of the bedpan was extremely stressful and very uncomfortable.

I was fortunate to experiment with Pibella and it was a big relief for me.

With Pibella I was immediately more independent and as a woman felt much better.

In my normal job, as Care Station Manager in a home for elderly, I probably would not have given Pibella a second glance, because until I had to use the bedpan myself I would never have thought what an uncomfortable and stressful thing this is to my own patients.

One night, while I was using Pibella with great ease, I suddenly realized that I should spread the word to all people who work in Care, to bravely offer Pibella to their patients.

The first try really needs some sort of bravery, but after that the quality of life of the patients becomes so much better!

Since then I have recommended this product to many other women.

For me the invention of Pibella is a blessing!”

Pibella urination device – enhanced comfort – for corpulent women too!

Pibella Urinieralternative für Frauen im Krankenhaus Barmherzige Schwester

This innovative female urination system for women that, in its present version, has proved to be particularly suitable when lying down, offers enhanced comfort for those concerned. This product makes it possible to avoid the painstaking transfer of a patient to a bedpan.

The relatively slim Pibella is also easy to position for rather corpulent women, and only one caregiver is needed.

The unpleasant feeling of urine dripping over thighs and buttocks in a lying position is a thing of the past because it is directly diverted from the urethral opening.

Due to the anatomical shape of the docking orifice, a risk of injury is prevented, and those concerned do not find it disturbing.

The plastic bag that is attached collects the urine in a highly reliable manner. No slope is necessary, it can just be placed on the bed. It’s also very easy to empty the bag prior to desposal.

Multiple use of the docking orifice is especially practical und straightforward in terms of using it for care purposes at home.

Pibella presents a creative alternative to all previously known urination systems, offering pleasant comfort for those concerned and valuable relief for the caregivers.

The patients find it easier and better then the bedpan

Pibella Urinieralternative für Frauen im Kantonsspital Baden

It is known that patients worry about excretions during their stay in a hospital. For urinating you need to push the button; a high chance for wetting the bed and the uncomfortable use of the bedpan all are concerns. Unfortunately there are not many studies done on this problem.

The use of Pibella is simple, and works after overcoming initial reluctance this novel device, making it a clean, simple and quiet activity.

It is important that the caregiver instructs the patient clearly how Pibella works and that there are other, better things available then the painful bedpan.

So far we have noticed in our Hospital that when Pibella is used, the patients find it easier and better then the bedpan.

“Your skin does not get wet” is a frequent remark from the users, which is quite important because it makes the patient feel ashamed and uncomfortable.
