What type incontinence product is best for me?

30.03.2015 | Posted in: Advice, Allanda, Disposable Incontinence Pads, Disposable Incontinence Pants, Incontinence Pads, Incontinence Pants | Author: Colin

No matter whether your continence issue is a temporary or ongoing problem, choosing the right product for your needs is important to ensure comfort, security and dignity. Yet with some many different types of product available it’s difficult to know where to start.

For those with light conditions (occasional leaks or dribbles) then washable incontinence pants are often the best solution. These are like normal underwear but with an absorbent pad built in to them. For those who prefer the convenience of a disposable product then small pads that fit into the user’s own underwear are available for both women and men. Disposable pads also have the benefit of odour control. Pouch Pants can be a good half way solution as these use a disposable insert pad, held in a pair of washable pants.

For those with a moderate or heavier condition then disposable products are the only solution but again here there are a variery of different options.

Shaped Pads are very cost effective, these are larger shaped pads designed to be held in place against the body using mesh fixation pants. These products can move around over time though, especially at night increasing the risk of leaks and can be awkward to remove and then replace when toileting.

All in One pads use tapes (generally two per side, high and low) to hold the pad securely in place. This means that the pad is very well located and unlikely to move, thus reducing risks of leaks. However they nature of the product mean that they are best applied with the wearer lying down and applied by a second person such as a carer. This means they aren’t ideal for those who toilet normally and are more suited to less mobile people. This type of product is sometimes referred to as an adult diaper.

The Belted All in One Pads resolve this problem as the pad has a belt attached to the back of it which fits around the waist of the wearer, and the front of the pad fits onto the belt using a Velcro style fastening. This product has the advantage that regular toilet use if far easier as the pad doesn’t need to be removed fully, and also the product is easier to put on, and this can be done by the wearer if needed.

For those who are fully mobile then disposable pull up incontinence pants offer the best solution as these can be pulled up and down just like normal underwear but offer the security of a built in pad. For quick and easy removal they have side tears. As they are like normal underwear the product can be put on by the wearer quickly and easily.

Once you have determined the type of product suitable for your needs it’s important to check you have the right size for a close, comfortable fit and the right level of absorbance for your needs. This might mean using a different level of absorption during the day compared to night time.

You might also find that different products are most suitable for your needs depending on the time of day and the planned activities for that day.

If you are unsure which type of product is best for you, it might be worth trying a few different types to see which suits you best.
