At least 2% of adults, both male and female, especially above 60 years of age suffer from night time or day time incontinence. These disorders may be due to urological disorder, family history or prostrate problem. Persons experiencing moderate to severe incontinence need a product which can take care of such problems; adult diaper is the right choice, as it has the absorbency and is designed for that need.
There are disposable incontinence pads, much like female menstrual pads, which are designed to be worn inside regular underwear. They are generally not absorbent enough to protect major bowel incontinence, but can be used for shorter periods.
The best adult diaper is that product which can take care of the following needs:
- It should have the capacity to hold urine for at least 8 hours.
- It must soak up urine and keep it away from the skin.
- It should have a booster pad of the same absorbent material which can be changed periodically.
- It should be comfortable to wear.
- It should have features for odor control and pH neutralization.
- It should not sag and leak.
Think about Perfect Fit
Adult diapers come in different sizes and thickness and depending on the nature of incontinence problem, one should choose the product. There are diapers available which can be worn all 24 hrs and are thick to absorb large quantity of urine and have bottom tapes to prevent leakage of urine. However, these diapers are uncomfortable to wear as they tend to dig into the inner thighs. These diapers also have features like odor control and pH neutralization which helps in odor emission, adding to peace of mind knowing that people would not be put off by how you smell.
Thick adult diapers may not be suitable for wearing in public as these are uncomfortable. A regular adult diaper with disposable booster pads can be a better answer if you have to go out in public.
An expensive adult diaper designed for heavy incontinence with a unique NASA inspired core employing Incontek technology is a top rated absorbent overnight adult diaper; these diapers have an absorbency material in the core which can absorb up to 2.6 liters of urine.
While choosing adult diapers for male or female, be careful to take all the necessary precautions to prevent adult diaper rash as extensive periods in a diaper can be very uncomfortable. Adult diapers come in different sizes and a well fitting diaper should be chosen which fits inside your formal clothes like an under garment and should not ruin your silhouette.
