How to Choose Incontinence Products – Searching for the Right Fit

Created Date: 2016-05-10 Comment: 0

Not everyone suffers from the same type of incontinence, so what suits someone else might not suit you. For some people, it’s not a full-time issue, but a problem that is triggered by a sneeze or cough. For others, it might be a constant problem. 

Which Incontinence product should you use?

Here are some factors you should consider to find the right product:

The right fit

If a product is too tight or too loose for you, it will definitely cause some leakage. The first time you try a product, stay at home a couple of times to see if it is indeed the best product for you. Don’t buy large quantities before trying them on a few times. If the leg cuffs of the product are loose, it is almost certain that it will leak. Make sure you try on a few sizes to find the right fit.

Urine output
If you have a large urine output, or have incontinence issues during the night, you should look for something that can handle all the wetness. Nighttime products are usually designed to contain urinary as well as fecal incontinence. Try on some incontinence products during the night to find the one that suits you the most.

Odor control
While all diapers and pull-up underwear come with some sort of odor control, some work better than the others. Again, it’s best to try a few diapers from different brands to see which one works the best.

Depending upon these factors, you can buy adult diapers, pull-up underwear, or booster pads.
