Incontinence - How To Choose Incontinence Products

How To Choose Incontinence Products

Problems with bladder control can increase as you get older, this is known as ‘incontinence’. According to the Continence Foundation of Australia, almost 4.8 million Australians are affected by incontinence. Many people feel embarrassed and find it difficult to address the problem which can diminish the quality of life for those affected.

There are a range of easy to use products that can help but it’s important to choose the right one.

Correct style

The product needs to suit the user’s lifestyle. There are pads that can be placed into underwear or pull ups that are an all in one style to be worn instead of regular underwear.

Correct absorbency

Pads and pull ups have different absorbency levels from light to heavy. It’s important to have the right one to avoid overly moist skin and the associated skin irritation and infections. It’s hard to know what absorbency level you will need, which is why we have samples for you to try. If you are wearing the pad and still have spillage then we will recommend a higher absorbency. If you are feeling reasonable dry, then it’s the right one for you. Of course, the absorbency level you need can change over time.

Correct size

The continence product you choose must fit properly to avoid leaking and inconvenience. There are sizes to fit all body shapes.

The message to take away from this is that there is a wide range of products that can help you manage incontinence. You can visit any of our stores for more information and help to select the right sample for you to try; and once you are happy, buy.

Properly managed incontinence improves independence and confidence, making every day life more enjoyable.
