What's New In the World of Adult Diapers?

The world of adult diapers has changed.
What's new in the world of adult diapers? It used to be that when it came to protection for adult incontinence, the options were very limited. You could visit your local drug store, and select from typically three brands in a limited range of styles, sizes and absorbencies. 

Today, however, there are hundreds of products to choose from, a wide variety of sizes, as well as protection levels. You can now get adult diapers that mimic the look and feel of traditional underwear. The CareGiver Partnership offers 500 items to choose from, 10 times more than even the big stores, and carries 100 different samples so you can try before you buy. You'll learn why this is important in a minute. Read on...

Today's adult diapers feature many of the following:

1. Gender specific products. Just a few years ago, all adult diapers were white. No longer are adult diapers gender neutral. The needs for men and women's incontinence protection are different, and thus, so are the products developed for them. While you can still find some gender neutral options, you will also see boxers designed specifically for men as well as pads and underwear created specifically to add the protection women need most. 

2. Options for protection. There is not a one size fits all level of incontinence, and thus, adult diapers come in a variety of absorbency rates, and options. You can get products for mild to heavy to complete loss of bladder or bowel incontinence. This makes discretion easier to manage, as those with mild day time incontinence can use a different product for day and night wear, rather than a bulky adult diaper all the time. This is very common among those who wear them.

3. Ease of use. Adult diapers can be of the pull-on variety, mimicking traditional underwear. Or, they may come with tabs or tape sides making them easier to be removed by a caregiver, or the wearer, without complete clothing removal. Some are washable, and have spots to insert pads for extra protection. There are options, and every option is designed for ease of use and/or discretion. A great option if you are out of the house is 'refastenable' -- they are easier to change while you're out because you don't have to completely disrobe in order to change the product.

According to Kimberly-Clarks consumer research, consumers buying incontinence products the first time, waste over $130 in trial and error mode, buying 8 to 10 packs before finding a product that works best for them. That's why samples are so important.
