Fight Urinary Incontinence With The Help Of These Productsby Kunal Joshi content writing
Urinary incontinence, or the loss of bladder control, is a common and often an embarrassing problem. Though its occurrence is far commoner as we age, but urinary incontinence is not necessarily an inevitable part of getting older. Irrespective of your age, if urinary incontinence has grown to be a fairly severe issue with you, you should definitely consult your doctor. It is also heartening to note that there is an array of products that help you cope with mild, moderate, and even severe symptoms. The following are some of them:
a. Pads and protective garments- these are by far the most popular incontinence products for men as well as women. They are available in a wide range of sizes, absorbencies, styles, and colours. The most common ones include:
- Absorbent pads: designed for both men and women, they are disposable
and come with adhesive strips to hold them inside your innerwear. They have the
capacity to trap at least 8 ounces of urine and prevents your skin from coming
in contact with it. These adult diapers for men or women also keep odour at bay
and can be changed throughout the day.
- Incontinence panties and briefs: these look very similar to regular
underwear, be it for women or men. However, they include a waterproof liner and
inbuilt cloth pad that has a capacity of absorbing 10 or more ounces of urine.
Reusable and washable, they are usually available in a variety of colours. You
can also choose between day styles and overnight ones, the latter being
designed to hold more urine. This underwear, like pads, is not only absorbent,
but also keep moisture away from your skin and blocks odour.
- Disposable underwear: they come in diverse styles. Some look similar
to elastic-banded underwear but are designed to be disposable. Others have tape
on the sides for adjustability. Also, they can be easily removed for
convenience and are available in day as well as overnight versions.
- Protective underpads: these are disposable or reusable flat pads
with an absorbent layer on one side and a moisture barrier on the other. They
are meant to protect mattresses, chairs, or other furniture from urine leaks.
These types of adult diapers for bowel incontinence come with antibacterial or
antifungal finishes as well as adhesive strips to keep them in place. They are
offered with varying range of absorbencies.
- Plastic pants: Besides using diaper for senior citizens, these pants can be worn over regular undergarments. These pant style diapers for adults are designed to provide protection against mild to moderate leaks.
