There is a wide assortment of incontinence products available online these days, such as adult diapers, incontinence underwear and plastic pants that can help adults as well as children manage urinary leakage. Urinary incontinence or (UI) is any involuntary leakage of urine, see bladder control problems. Bowel/Stool or as it is also called, Fecal Incontinence, can be an even severe problem. There is not a single right answer how to manage incontinence, the key is finding out which of these different products works best for you with your particular situation. Your choice in choosing the product, that best suited you, depends on several factors that include the severity of fluid or stool loss, the pattern of it, your mobility if handicapped, your age, the cost of your supplies, their durability, ease of use, comfort and odor control.
In trying to alleviate their urinary leakage, many men and women who are suffering from bladder leakages mistakenly have begun to the use products not designed to solve their incontinence problem, such as the use of sanitary napkins or mini pads for their bladder condition. These pads are not meant for incontinence; they are specially designed for menstruation and do not manage satisfactorily the flow of urine. Our TrimShield Super-Plus disposable insert pads have some resemblance to the napkins or menstrual pads but have a higher absorbency and optimum fluid retention, in that the absorbent core holds in moisture and neutralizes odor. These disposable incontinence pads come with a waterproof plastic backing. Less visible than adult diapers, these incontinence pads are designed primarily to be worn in user’s own underwear, briefs or pants, promoting patient dignity and better skin care.
We also recommend our popular extra absorbent reusable 6 layers washable cloth liners, you can use these to help keep stains off your cloth diapers, also preventing diaper rash ointment from getting on your diapers, this will extending the life of your cloth diapers. The 6 layers of cotton help distribute the fluid, increasing the combined absorbency. The liners body fitted shape make it easy to double up if needed without too much bulk. These washable liners can also be held in place by waterproof incontinence panties, vinyl plastic pants or diaper covers, as well as be used as diaper doublers inside disposable adult diapers to boost their capacity, since these disposable diapers will begin to leak when they exceed their absorbency capacity, therefore boosting the diaper with a diaper doublers or cloth incontinence pad, is highly recommended for heavy wetter's during overnight hours or when away from home.

Adult Cloth Diapers provide you the maneuverability and an extra guard against an accident, leaks which would not be very, appealing to incontinence, suffers. These highly absorbent Adult cloth diapers will keep you dryer longer, when used with Gary® waterproof plastic pants. You are making the preferred choice, since adult cloth diapers permit your body to cool of when heat builds up allowing air to circulate and moisture to evaporate eliminating the chance of rash. Reusable cloth diapers are also the preferred choice for your health, that because disposable diapers emit mixtures of chemicals, such as Chlorine that is an ingredient you will most likely find in all disposable diaper brands. It is an extremely harsh chemical that has long term effects to our health it is most often used to kill bacteria in water, and is usually found in swimming pools to keep them sanitary. So why is it used in disposable diapers? Chlorine makes your skin dry and causes diaper rashes, Cloth diapers will reduce the load on our landfills; help decrease the use of disposable material in diapers such as pulp and plastics, as these contents after use, are largely directed to municipal sewage treatment facilities. Also, a disposable diaper requires over 80 times more material in the same time period of the lifespan of a typical reusable incontinence cloth diaper. Cloth diapers are expensive initially, but in the long run save you a lot of money.
