Urinary Incontinence Products for Adult
Urinary incontinence is the result of a loss of bladder control and is quite a common and situational embarrassing problem. The symptoms of the problem range from mild leaks to uncontrolled release (wetting). While the condition is more prevalent among the aged, it can happen to anyone. Further, women are twice more at the risk of having this problem than men. Patients with this condition aren’t able to control their urine and by the time they make it to the bathroom, the harm is already done.
The reason for urinary incontinence is inactivity or hyperactivity of muscles. In most cases, patients face the problem due to weak bladder muscles and urine may be released when they sneeze, lift something heavy, or even laugh out loud. In some cases, people with hyperactive muscles have a strong urge to go to the bathroom even when there is little urine in the system. Urinary incontinence can result from various other conditions including nerve damage or an enlarged prostate.
While the condition cannot be completely treated, patients are always advised be on a specialized regimen that may include medicine and simple exercises. Doctors might suggest special procedures or surgery in some cases. Release of urine in a social setting is not only embarrassing, but can even lead to rashes and infection due to continued wetness of the skin.
A common way to assist this problem is to use highly absorbent underpads or protective undergarments that soak up or catch the urine. ActiveForever supplies Inspire Protective Underwear that is designed for Medium to Heavy incontinence or the Inspire Protective Panty Starter Pack for light or less frequent releases. These panties are made from a quality cotton material that is comfortable on the skin and even presents a feminine fashion statement. The best thing about this underwear is that they are completely washable and reusable and come in sizes Small to 3X-Large.
For incontinence while sleeping, the Kendall Durasorb Underpads will do the job. These disposable bed pads will save your bed linens, and even furniture, from getting soiled while keeping your skin dry through the night. However, those that have a severe case will need something more heavy duty to help the situation. The Tranquility Premium Overnight Disposable Absorbent Underwear come with a high absorbent capacity holding over a quart of liquid and are comfortable to wear throughout the night. ActiveForever carries several sizes and styles of these underpads.
The goal of all these products is to keep the skin dry at all times and further save the patient any embarrassment in public. Simultaneously, they are advised to seek medical help from specialists who can prescribe a special diet and surgery, if needed, depending on the severity of the condition.
