Designed to mimic the natural function of the anal sphincter muscle, our prosthesis helps patients improve control of their bowel movements. However, the surgical procedure to implant the A.M.I. Soft Anal Band System is just one aspect of managing faecal incontinence. Eating habits, physical activity and each patient’s individual attitude can all contribute significantly to the success of the implantation. For most people, physical exercise combined with a sufficient intake of fluids is a highly effective way of regulating bowel activity.
