|Incontinence pads simply life and improve discretion|
when suffering from incontinence.
First and foremost, when discussing incontinence pads, there are two options, bed pads, and absorbency pads that are placed in underwear.
Designed for skin protection. Incontinence pad are designed for skin protection. They are made to wick moisture away from the skin, and trap it in an absorbent core, protecting both the skin and the furniture from fluid. If an individual overflows their adult diaper, or other incontinence product a pad can catch the excess, and help keep skin healthy.
Disposable. While there are reusable, washable options, disposable pads can be used to simplify life. They can be placed on furniture, or beds, and when they have been soiled, they can be disposed of, protecting bedding, and mattresses, and saving you tons of time and laundering.
Odor protection. Incontinence pads can offer additional odor protection. The pads that can be worn in the underwear can be used in conjunction with other products, or used on their own to reduce any smells associated with bladder control.
Brand specific features of incontinence pads worn in underwear:
