It is mainly used to avert fecal waste from patient’s body and contain liquid and semi-liquid stool. For instance, DIGNISHIELD advance stool management system offered by Bard, is an advanced stool management device that draws from clinical insight to mitigate damage to delicate tissue due to leakage, pressure, and friction. Further, it helps protect patients from exposure, tissue damage, and odor. The device contains a catheter tube assembly, a 60cc syringe, a collection bag, a syringe of lubricating jelly, and a biological odor eliminator.

Surge in availability of technological advanced devices for fecal management, rise in geriatric population, and surge in fecal inconsistency related disorders are the major factors that drive the growth of the bowel management systems market. Further, growth in awareness regarding the availability of these devices accompanied with launch of new devices addressing the many unmet needs contributes to the market growth of the bowel management system market. However, lack of trained professionals and patient’s discomfort in using these devices hinder the growth of the market.
