The Effect of Electronic Cleansing Toilet System (Bidet) on Anal Resting Pressure

2014-07-23 21:09:26 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of Bidet on anal resting pressure with regards to various flow rates and temperatures.


Bidet is an electronic device spraying stream of the water for cleansing the anus and sometimes to aid defecation. It is widely used in Korea and Japan, with the flow rate (pressure) and temperature of water varying widely among the manufacturers. However, the effects of Bidet on anorectal function have not been studied in detail with regards to these variables.
