- Determine what type of incontinence product that you need-Because of the wide variety of incontinence products it is important to narrow down what type you will need. There are many different types of incontinence products so you need to take into consideration if Tena pads, Tena diapers, or Tena protective underwear, or a combination of the incontinence products listed above will work best of you. This determination will be based on the activity level of the wearer, severity of their incontinence, and the health status of the wearer. If the wearer is fairly active they may choose to use Tena protective underwear that can be used under normal clothing. The Tena protective underwear can be used with or without Tena pads. For someone who has limited mobility they may choose to use Tena diapers for the ease of putting them and taking them off. The severity of the incontinence will also determine which incontinence product to use. Generally Tena pads are used to help light to moderate incontinence with Tena protective underwear and Tena diapers used for moderate to severe incontinence. The good news is that Tena incontinence products come in all varying absorbencies from Tena pads that range from light to heavy to Tena protective underwear that runs all the way up to extra absorbent.
- Choose the incontinence product that is made for the gender of the wearer-Not to long ago those with incontinence were forced to put up with unisex incontinence supplies. Today, manufacturers of incontinence products understand the unique needs of each gender when it comes to incontinence supplies. The makers of the Tena protective underwear line understand this as well. For this reason there is Tena protective underwear for men and Tena protective underwear for women. These types of incontinence products will help provide protection for incontinence sufferers where they need it most based on their gender. This makes Tena incontinence products extremely effective in helping to manage the incontinence of either gender and should be taken into account when choosing Tena protective underwear.
- Consider what size will be needed-Another recent development in incontinence products is the sizing that makes today’s adult diapers far more effective. It is important to keep in mind that the size of a incontinence product will have a direct effect on how much protection it provides for the wearer. If the person with incontinence is wearing an adult diaper that is too small or too large the risk for leakage and accidents is greatly increased. In the Tena incontinence product line the sizes range from small to XXXL. In addition, even Tena pads come in varying sizes. This allows anyone with incontinence that chooses to use Tena incontinence products the ability to choose the right size incontinence product for them. This means that small people will not be overwhelmed by their incontinence supplies and those who are larger can feel comfortable and confident in the Tena incontinence products that they have chosen.
