Choosing the right products for incontinence

Choosing the right products for incontinence

Although it may not seem like it, incontinence is more common than you may think. It’s estimated that one in four of us will have bladder issues, while one in 10 will have problems with bowel control. There are many solutions available that offer comfort and dignity.

Bed and Chair Protection

Bed and Chair Protectors guards your seats and mattresses from leaks or accidents. They are designed to soak up and hold the moisture, keeping the user dry and comfortable. There are a wide variety of products to choose from, so whether you need floor protection, mattress covers or duvet protectors. You will find the right product for your needs.

Pads and Pants

The most common solution for incontinence issues is the Pad and Pants. Although they might have a reputation of being large and uncomfortable, there are many new pads that are not only comfortable and easy to use; but they also offer better protection against leakages. Because they are so easy to put on, the user can put them on with the help of a carer.

Incontinence Alarm

An option for overnight care is the Incontinence Alarm. This not only detects incontinence, but also bedwetting and vomit. Simply place the mat on your bed, and if it detects moisture, it activates a beeper alarm in the monitor unit. This can alert the sleeper or nearby carers.
