Anal Hygiene Pad and Method of Use

November 22, 2011

A method for absorbing leakage from an anus of a subject, comprising positioning a non-adhesive intergluteal absorbent pad external to the subject's anal orifice such that the pad is retained frictionally between the buttocks without an adhesive to attach the pad to the buttocks, so that discharge from the anus is absorbed by the absorbent material of the pad, This device has been patented by a researcher in Oregon. The pad has a minor portion superimposed on a major portion, the minor portion having a cross-sectional area smaller than a cross-sectional are of the major portion and wherein the minor portion is tapered along its width to facilitate insertion between the subject's gluteals and retention in the intergluteal space, and a portion of the minor portion is positioned against the anus, and the minor portion has a length that is at least as long as the length of the major portion.
