|There are many different types of|
incontinence products to choose from
These styles of incontinence products for men include:
- Flat, beltless, disposable shields and guards-This disposable incontinence product is made from a waterproof material that has a non woven backing. These types of shields and guards are meant to be worn inside normal or incontinence underwear. The male shield or guard is also designed to keep the surrounding skin as dry as possible by using a material that is a gel that will trap and keep any liquid from coming in contact with skin. This can be an easy and convenient incontinence product to use since many types of incontinence undergarments that are made for men have a special pocket which holds this incontinence product in place. There are also shields that can be worn inside normal underwear. An adhesive strip on the back holds the incontinence product in place. Because this category of incontinence product is disposable it can make them a discreet and efficient solution for managing male incontinence.
- Shaped, disposable pads-This type of incontinence product is also disposable but it is designed to be shaped for the needs of men who are dealing with incontinence. This type of incontinence pad will give maximum protection in the front where leakage is most likely to occur. Best of all, there is a wide variety of shaped disposable male incontinence pads. These incontinence pads come in many different absorbency levels and a wide range of sizes allowing the man using them to choose the one that offer the highest level of protection and comfort.
- Adult diapers-At first glance you may feel that an adult diaper does not fall under the category of pads and liners but an adult diaper is just the largest type of incontinence pad. There are styles of male adult diapers that are reusable and those that are disposable. They can come in both open side styles and pull-up. Many men who are experiencing moderate to heavy incontinence choose them for the highest level of protection. Adult diapers can offer protection for both day and nighttime in differing absorbency levels. Some men who are trying to manage their incontinence find that they can layer an adult diaper with an incontinence pad for better flexibility and yet still have the discretion and comfort that they seek.
