"My brother had autonomic hyperreflexia in 1993 (the blood pressure was elevated with distension of bowel, rectum and bladder). This attack of sudden elevation in his blood pressure led to a stroke – bilateral cerebral hemorrhage. He recovered from the coma after two weeks to lose his speech. I wish he had the PIE* earlier. Maybe this all would have never happened. Since we have been using the PIE, our life has been much easier. He has one bowel movement every other day…regular, no bleeding, no mess, no hemorrhoids, no fissures, less time."

"My son was born with spina bifida. He has had bowel and bladder problems since birth…tried many different methods of bowel control with no success…while in hospital for kidney infection due to bowels not being empty, his doctor tried the PIE*…very impressed and doctor decided it was the method Richard needed…have been using the machine since 1989 and has only been hospitalized for one infection…keeps him out of the hospital for 3 to 4 days because of kidney infections…we normally did and average 2 hospital stays per year…PIE* paid for itself in the first 6 months by keeping my son out of the hospital…."
"Since becoming acquainted with the PIE* technique, I find it viable, easily accomplished, and well tolerated by patients… therefore, I have recommended its use to physicians and nurse colleagues at other hospitals and institutions… the PIE* procedure has been used successfully on numerous patients here at our facility on an out-patient basis, therefore preventing a costly stay in-patient hospitalization."
