How adult incontinence products have improved

Incontinence Products

If you are shopping for adult incontinence products you may be shocked by the vast number of choices that there is available today. Not to long ago, anyone with incontinence would have to settle for using a unisex, “one size fits all” adult incontinence product that looked and performed like an oversized baby diaper.  This lack of selection in adult incontinence products made managing the serious medical problem of incontinence even harder. Fortunately, manufacturers of adult incontinence products have come to realize that incontinence is a fairly common problem which affects people of all ages, both genders, and varying health status. This has led to the development of adult incontinence products that can be used by people who want to manage their incontinence while still maintaining their normal and active life. Here is what you need to know about how adult incontinence products have improved-
  • Size-
      Before-Not to long ago, anyone with incontinence had to put up with a “one size   fits all” approach to adult incontinence products. This meant that smaller people    ended up feeling like they were swimming in their incontinence undergarment           while larger people rarely could be comfortable. In addition, this lack of sizing       meant that adult incontinence products were not as effective as they could be        since size plays an integral part of how effective an adult incontinence product is.
      Today-The good news is that today most lines of incontinence supplies offer a       wide range of sizes. Manufacturers of incontinence products understand that            people of all different sizes need adult incontinence products. This means that    even the smallest and largest people can find adult incontinence products that fit    them and offer them the effectiveness that they need. In addition, this sizing is not           just for adult diapers or other incontinence undergarments but for incontinence       pads, as well.
  • Gender specific-
      Before-Just like sizing there was little attention paid to the details of adult             incontinence products in the past. This meant that most adult incontinence            products that were offered were unisex. The       problem with this is that it does not   address the specific needs of each gender as to where they need incontinence          protection the most. This unisex adult incontinence product of years past was         highly ineffective, as well.
      Today-Manufacturers of adult incontinence products understand that men and      women have very different needs when it comes to adult incontinence products.   To address this they have designed incontinence products for men and        incontinence product for women. This allows each gender to select adult       incontinence products that are made to give them protection where they need        it most. This simple design change has increased the effectiveness of all       incontinence supplies from adult diapers to incontinence pads.
  • Variety-
      Before-Not to long ago, if you were diagnosed with incontinence then your only   choice in adult incontinence products was the adult diaper. While this is an       effective management solution for some people this is not the answer for   everyone.
      Today-If someone is diagnosed with incontinence today there are many more        options to choose from for adult incontinence products then ever before. Today,     whether you have light incontinence or moderate to severe incontinence you can         find the right adult incontinence product to meet your needs. For people with light           incontinence there are incontinence pads and boosters that can give you the            protection you need. Other people with more moderate incontinence can choose           from a variety of different styles and types of incontinence undergarments and            adult diapers. Even for those with the most severe incontinence there are options    to choose from that can help you manage your incontinence and maintain your       normal lifestyle.
