We’re slowly adding video content throughout the site to give you more information about our products. The latest we’ve added is for TENA Wash Cream.

TENA Wash Cream combines three skincare products into one:

– A mild, surfactant free cleanser

– A gentle, creamy moisturiser

– A non-smearing, protective film barrier

The special ingredients gently remove odour, urine and faecal residues with minimal effort and scrubbing. After cleansing the the special formulation helps restore the natural lipid and moisture balance of the skin and the protective skin film barrier minimises skin contact with urine and faeces to provide ongoing protection for fragile elderly skin.

The video gives more information on skincare and can be seen below or on the Tena Wash Cream product page.

The Full TENA Skincare range is Wash Cream, Wash Mousse, Wet Wipes, Soft Wipes, Wash Glove, Cellduk Wipes and Skin Lotion

Skincare is very important in Continence Management.  Ageing makes the skin sensitive to ongoing exposure to moisture and contact with urine and faeces, this may easily initiate skin degradation causing irritation, itching or infection. There use of wipes and cleansing products are important to maintain skin hygiene and health. TENA Wet Wipes are specifically designed for continence care and are pre-moistened with a 3-in-1 formula to cleanse, restore and protect skin with just a single wipe.  Also the “clean touch” system ensures safer and easier handling as it requires only one hand to open the pack lid. Find out more about how they work with our new video.

Marathon runnners warned about potential incontinence risks

11.10.2012 | Posted in: Advice, Incontinence, News, Stress Incontinence, Urinary Incontinence | Author: Colin

Marathon runners may be preoccupied with shin splints, chafing and blisters on race day, but they should also consider bladder health, a U.S. researcher says.

“The added stress on the body that comes with running a marathon can cause urinary stress incontinence problems during the race or down the road,” Dr. Melinda Abernethy of the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, said in a statement. “People who already suffer from incontinence also are at risk for bladder-control issues while running.”

Stress incontinence – the loss of urine from physical activity such as coughing, sneezing and running — is the most common form of urinary incontinence, and affects women more often than men.

Researchers at the Loyola University Health System plan to survey Chicago area runners to study the relationship between long-distance running and pelvic floor disorders, Abernethy said. Until more is known, Abernethy recommends runners monitor their fluid intake and go to the toilet at least every few hours during a marathon.

“Putting off going to the bathroom during the race is not healthy for your bladder,” Abernethy said. “Runners also should avoid diuretics, such as coffee or tea, before the race, because this can stimulate the bladder and cause you to visit the bathroom more frequently.”

Abernethy added pelvic floor exercises such as kegels, may help runners prevent urine leakage during the race.

Revolutionary procedure for Incontinence shows promising results

09.10.2012 | Posted in: News, Stress Incontinence, Urinary Incontinence | Author: Colin

Carolyn Upton, an exercise enthusiast first noticed that she had stress incontinence in her mid-forties.

“Running, jumping jacks. All those things were really terrible for me,” she said. She was one of 64 women picked for a first of its kind study. Urologist Kenneth Peters is testing a non-surgical procedure to help and possibly cure stress urinary incontinence. Patients undergo a leg biopsy to remove muscle for cultivation.

“We would take a little piece of muscle,” said Peters. Cells from that muscle were isolated. Then, grown in the lab and separated into different doses.  “Ten million, 50 million, 100 million or 200 million cells.”

The cells are injected to help regenerate muscles that control the bladder. Six months later the initial results seem promising.

“The majority of patients had at least 50-percent reduction in their incontinence. Depending on the dose, anywhere from 20-50 percent of patients become completely dry,” said Peters. It appears the higher the dose the better the outcomes. Carolyn says her problem is about 80-percent better since the procedure.

“It really does change your life,” she said. A larger clinical trial in the works and could happen within the next year.

Faecal incontinence highly under-reported

03.10.2012 | Posted in: Faecal Incontinence, Fecal Incontinence, News | Author: Colin

Faecal incontinence, or the inability to control the bowels, is a highly underreported and stigmatized condition, according to colorectal surgeons at Loyola University Health System (LUHS) in Chicago.

“This is a debilitating condition, which drastically affects a person’s quality of life,” said Dana Hayden, MD, MPH, colorectal surgeon, LUHS. “People with Fecal incontinence avoid leaving the house to prevent an embarrassing accident from happening in public.”

Faecal incontinence is more common in older adults, and although it affects women more commonly, men can also suffer from this disorder. This condition can be caused by a variety of factors, including damage to the pelvic nerves or muscles from trauma such as childbirth, and anal or rectal surgery; diseases like diabetes; or complications from radiation. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that more than 18 million Americans have faecal incontinence, yet Loyola doctors believe it is much higher.

“Fecal incontinence isn’t something that people talk about, yet we know from our practice that it is extremely common,” said Dr. Hayden, who also is an assistant professor in the Division of Colorectal Surgery at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. “The good news is there are options to manage this condition.”
