Common Problems with Incontinence Disposal Methods

The modern disposal system for incontinence products.

If you are a caregiver for a person who suffers from severe incontinence you understand the issues associated with discreet and sanitary disposal of the products. Traditional methods of disposal often caused odors throughout the house, embarrassment for the afflicted person or unsanitary receptacles.

The fact is there were just not many options that provided the necessary features to dispose of these items in an easy and sanitary fashion. However, with the introduction of the Akord diaper pail, you can have all these appealing benefits, and more. If you are new to caring for a person who suffers from incontinence you may not understand the full degree of problems associated with incontinence supply disposal. Therefore, the following list will outline the main issues that typical disposal methods could cause:
  • Odors throughout the house: Typical incontinence supply receptacles do not have any features for odor control, which means the entire house may end up having a foul odor if the bags are not changed several times a day.
  • Odors to the plastic receptacle: Most plastics will absorb an odor is exposed to it for long periods of time, which can further increase the smell throughout the space.
  • Indiscreet disposal: If you dispose of an adult diaper in a traditional trash can there is not discretion or ability to shield the product from guests or visitors, which may cause embarrassment for the afflicted person.
  • Unsanitary conditions: Having adult diapers lying around in trash cans is not sanitary; also if the diaper opens or leaks in any way it can contaminate the entire unit.
With careful consideration of each of these adult diaper disposal features, innovative creators developed the plan for the Akord diaper pail (watch the video).  This sleek unit is made to provide discreet disposal of adult diapers in a sanitary and efficient manner. Additionally, it can be used as a traditional trash receptacle if incontinence supply disposal is no longer a requirement for your home. Some of the main features you will receive with this unit include:
