Adult Diapers / Disposable Briefs
Adult briefs, also called adult diapers, work well for those with mobility issues and who may require the help of a caregiver. Disposable briefs are designed with tab closures for easy application and removal. Adult briefs are optimal for individuals that experience heavy urinary incontinence or mixed incontinence. Available in a variety of brands and absorbencies, incontinence briefs provide great overnight protection, as well.
Protective Underwear / Pull-Ons
Protective Underwear, also referred to as pull-ons, is an incontinence product with cloth-like fabric that resembles typical underwear. Pull-ons are best suited for independent, mobile adults with moderate bladder leakage.
Protective underwear is available in unisex options, as well as male and female styles. The gender-specific underwear is available with absorbency in different areas based on the male or female anatomy. Pull-ons are designed to be discreet-looking and feel like regular underwear.
Bladder Control Pads
Incontinence pads, also referred to as poise pads or bladder control pads, are an option for those who want a product that can be secured to undergarments like a menstrual pad, but can hold more fluid. These absorbent pads are ideal for women experiencing light bladder leakage due to activities such as laughing, sneezing, coughing, or exercising. Bladder control pads, along with male guards, are the most discreet option when it comes to incontinence supplies.
Male Guards are designed specifically for the male anatomy, with a higher ridge in front to trap leakage as soon as it happens. Male guards are best for light leakage that occurs when lifting heavy objects, coughing, sneezing, or performing other strenuous movements. The underside of the male guard securely attaches to the inside of the underwear, creating a snug seal, absorbing leaks quickly and efficiently.
Underpads / Bed Pads / Chux
Underpads, bed pads, and Chux are three common names for an absorbent incontinence product designed to help protect bedding and furniture from incontinence. They are soft, lightweight and yet many types are strong enough to help reposition individuals up to 300lbs. Disposable underpads are a great way to get additional absorbency for a dry and comfortable night's sleep. Underpads can also be used in wheelchairs, and they can range in thickness and absorbency depending on the unique need of the individual user.
