What are the Most Absorbent Incontinence Pads?

Incontinence pads are actually the most discreet type of incontinence product. They are both discreet and easy to buy.

Featuring odour control technology, pads effectively draw urine away from the surface. You should avoid the temptation to buy sanitary pads, as this can lead to irritated skin.

Many people prefer pads for the following benefits:

  • You can maintain dignity. Pads are discreet and small, in contrast to a bulky diaper.
  • Incontinence pads do not leave you feeling too hot or uncomfortable.
  • You can wear them inside normal underwear. It can feel less strange to wear a pad inside your underwear, rather than instead of underwear. This is a benefit for girls in particular, as the style can resemble sanitary pads.

So What are the Most Absorbent Incontinence Pads?

Different incontinence pad designs are all available in a range of absorbencies. Generally, incontinence slips and belted pads hold more absorbency than other designs. These pads are popular among people with heavy leaks and low mobility. Large shaped pads also have a high amount of absorbency and are anatomically shaped to fit the body. You can purchase these in designs for both men and women.

If you are looking for a pad for heavy incontinence, look at the “Levels” of absorbency on the packaging. “Maxi” level pads are the highest level of absorbency, suitable for heavy urinary incontinence and faecal incontinence. “Super” pads are also very absorbent, coming after Maxi. If you see products labelled as “Plus” and “Normal”, these are generally designed for light to moderate incontinence. Different pad designs are suitable for different people. If you are unsure which type to choose, you can shop our heavy incontinence samples to find a product that is ideal for you.

 

Different brands can also have differing maximum absorbencies for each level. You can see the different absorbency levels of some bestseller pads below:
