A metal loop from a simple tube key is equipped with a handle shaped to fit the user’s hand. The microlax tube is placed in the loop.
Technique: Move to the toilet chair, place the wheelchair in front of the toilet, place one leg bent across on the wheelchair. Place the microlax tube in the holder, insert it into the anal opening and twist the hand/handle to squeeze out the contents of the tube.
The user has tested the Microlax doser. Emptying the tube is not 100% successful. The tube is rather stiff and when you twist it the tip is pressed against the intestine. Today she uses Peristeen, which works well for her.
How to make
The tube key is bent into the shape of a loop that fits the microlax tube. The tube key handle is made of Fimo modeling clay.
