Adult Incontinence Products
Incontinence products are absorbent underpads and garments that contain leaks from urinary or fecal incontinence. Some examples include adult diapers, incontinence pads, and bed pads. All of these supplies are designed to absorb urinary leakage and protect the skin against damage. Express Medical Supply also sells sample packs that include different styles of protective underwear or underpads so that you can find the product to best suit your needs.
Adult diapers are absorbent undergarments that have adhesive tabs on the sides. The tabs allow you to adjust the fit and help keep the diaper in place throughout the day or night. Many of the diapers we carry feature elastic leg gathers that protect against leaks. Incontinence briefs are available in a wide variety of sizes and absorbency levels to meet your needs. While most adult diapers are disposable, we do carry a couple of reusable adult diapers that can be washed.
Incontinence pads are liners that are worn along with traditional underwear to absorb leaks. There are unisex designs available, as well as men's and women's styles. Bladder pads can handle light to heavy leakage, depending on the absorbency level of the product. Pads that offer lighter coverage tend to be thinner. However, even high absorbency pads can still be inconspicuous under clothing. Men have the option of wearing a pouch-like pad called a guard. This design covers the penis and tapers in the back, providing the most coverage in front.
If you experience leakage overnight, bed pads can help contain leaks while sleeping. These underpads are placed on top of a mattress and under the patient to absorb wetness and pull it away from the skin. This keeps the skin in healthy condition because the skin will not be in contact with liquid throughout the night. Express Medical Supply carries a wide variety of disposable and reusable underpads. Disposable underpads are single-use products that are thrown away after they become soiled, making them convenient to use. Reusable underpads can be put in a washing machine and used more than once. Over time, these are a more economical option because you won't go through bed pads as frequently. Absorbent bed pads are often available in smaller sizes that are great for chairs and wheelchairs.
