The CareFor Deluxe brand, manufactured by Salk, provides top quality washable underpads that quickly absorb bladder leaks. We carry underpads in various sizes for beds, chairs, and wheelchairs. The top layer is designed to wick moisture away from the skin to prevent irritation and skin breakdown. Skin breakdown can occur if the delicate skin is in contact with liquids (such as urine) for an extended period of time. The bottom layer is waterproof to lock in fluids and prevent leaks. These underpads have a special coating that resists bacteria and odor for ultimate sanitation.
If you prefer single-use underpads, Express Medical Supply also carries Disposable Underpads. These underpads, also known as Chux pads, are placed on a chair or mattress to protect against urinary leakage. We carry underpads with various levels of absorbency, from light to heavy, to best suit your needs. The soft, breathable topsheet provides maximum comfort and quickly draws in fluid. We carry several underpads that feature a polymer core, which is designed to turn fluids into gel. All chux pads have a waterproof backing that rotects the chair or mattress surface. Some underpads include adhesive tabs to keep it secured to the mattress or chair. Once the Chux underpad is soiled, it should be thrown away.
Adult Diapers are absorbent undergarments that are ideal for those with incontinence or limited mobility. They are best for people who experience moderate to heavy incontinence. Adult diapers contain a polymer core that quickly draws away moisture to prevent skin irritation or breakdown. Elastic leg gathers are designed to prevent leaks. The diapers are held in place using adhesive tabs that can be undone and re-fastened if needed. We carry diapers that have an indicator strip on the outside of the garment that indicates wetness, which is ideal for caregivers.
Adult Undergarments are meant to be worn in place of traditional underwear. They differ from adult diapers because they are secured using an adjustable belt rather than adhesive tabs. The belt has either buttons or velcro to keep the protective underwear in place and can be adjusted for a proper fit. We also carry a liner-like undergarment that does not have a belt or tabs. These liners are used in conjunction with your own traditional underwear. They are kept in place by an adhesive strip on the under side of the liner. Both the belted style and liner style undergarments have a multi-layer core and elastic gathering at the legs to prevents leaks.
Adult Pull Ups are slip-on style incontinence underwear that do not need to be secured using tabs or a belt. They are easy to put on and take off, which provides a sense of independence for the wearer. The elastic waist conforms to the body and helps keep the underwear in place. They are made of a soft cloth-like material that feels like traditional underwear, making them more discreet under clothing. Adult pull ups are ideal for those with moderate to heavy incontinence. Express Medical Supply carries styles that are specifically designed for men and women.
