Women are 5 times more likely to develop incontinence, however we often underestimate the number of men with incontinence. Studies have shown that over 10% of men over 65 suffer from incontinence.
However, many men do not speak about the problem. The fact that incontinence is so taboo has led to men being unaware of the options of products available. Men’s incontinence pants are discreet, comfortable and highly absorbent methods of protection.
What are the Different Types of Incontinence Pants for Men?
Pull Up Pants are designed like normal underwear with the addition of a pad. Men’s pull up pants are an ideal product for those who prefer the ease of use and security of garment with built in pad. Pull up pants are ideal for light to severe incontinence.
Washable briefs are designed for people with light incontinence who want a discreet product. Fly buttons, similar to regular boxers, are convenient for people who travel and do not need to take their trousers off when changing. Some anatomical pants have leg carriage for the catheter bag and straps, keeping the tubes and urine bag in place. Washable pants are not ideal for heavier incontinence.
These pants provide reliable protection for urinary and faecal incontinence. Waterproof pants provide discretion, with rustle-free PVC. These pants should be used in combination with other disposable products.
Stretch pants are designed for wearing alongside shaped pads to hold them correctly in place. They do not have absorbency on their own, however prevent your pad from moving out of place.
How to Choose the Best Pants for You
Consider the following factors when choosing a pant that is ideal for you:
- Are they Suitable for Your Mobility?
For fully mobile or active people, we recommend elasticated flexible pants. If you are less mobile or bed bound, pants with adhesive side strips that are easy to pull off are easy.
- Is your Skin Sensitive?
Choosing hypoallergenic inner material prevents skin infections and rashes. If your skin doesn’t react well to latex, you can find latex free material products. It is also recommended to use a soft material waistband that allows the skin to fully breathe. Most pants offer a breathable outer covering that prevents stuffiness and helps skin breathe.
- Are you on a Budget?
If you are on a budget, you can find economic pants or buy in bulk. You can shop our range of bulk incontinence products to find all our Case Savers deals.
- Do the Pants offer Protection Against Odour?
Many people feel more confident knowing they are protected against unwanted odour. You can buy pants that have special odour control technology, which neutralizers the unpleasant smell of urine and stool.
- Do the Pants feature Leg Leak Guards?
Leg leak guards are necessary to keep urine and faeces from soiling outer garments. The majority of products do have elasticated legs and side panels to keep leaks inside the pad.
