Incontinence Aids

 

Continence Issues
Involuntary loss of urine may occur during the day or night and can happen to people at any age. There are many types of incontinence and different causes. There are different ranges of equipment available ar Indy to manage incontinence. The most popular of these are:

  • Incontinence Pads

  • Washable underwear with integral padding

  • Disposable bed pads

  • Washable bed pads

  • Waterproof covers

  • Waterproof duvets and covers


Considerations:


• Incontinence pads are the most popular products, can be worn during the day under clothes or at night.
• Pads with no waterproof backing should be worn in pants with a waterproof pouch or gusset
• Bed pads protect the mattress, washable or disposable varieties are available
• Washable bed pads can be washed and reused many times. Some are designed to absorb large quantities of urine, keeping the skin dry, so that you can sleep undisturbed for several hours
• Generally, disposable bed pads are used as a back up in case a body-worn product leaks, as they tend not to work well when used as sole protection. They vary greatly in their quality, thickness and absorbency. Some are sealed on all four sides, others on only two. Some are "quilted", which may assist urine distribution
• Waterproof covers to protect mattresses, pillows, blankets, duvets and sleeping bags are available in a range of sizes, styles and fabrics. These help to minimise leaks and stains, reduce laundry and save on replacing worn bedding. There are a range of waterproof pillows and duvets available.

Absorbancy

Incontinence pads come in a variety of different forms to account for differing levels of urine escaping. It's important that you check when you buy incontinence pads that you take home a pad that is going to be sufficient to your needs.

To help with your decision of what type of pad you might require we've attached a .pdf showing absorbancy guidelines for the Medline range of incontinence pads. You can access this guide here.
