Other things to consider

  • Obtain advice. If you have been assessed by a nurse he/she can advise you. If you already use a product we can provide an equivalent. 
  • The absorbency of productsFigures for absorbency are derived from standard laboratory tests which will tell you if one pad absorbs more than another.  An adult bladder usually holds about 550ml (a pint). Most people feel the need to empty their bladder when it is about half full so the amount of urine excreted at one time is about a cupful. Most pads are easily able to hold several times the volume of urine likely to be excreted at one time. 
  • How many? If you are using more than 6 pads a day you should consider using a product with a greater absorbency.
  • At night. For a more comfortable night’s sleep a higher absorbency pad may be useful. We also sell waterproof matress covers that are ideal for night time continence care. 
  • If at first you don’t succeed. The first incontinence product you tried may not always be the one design that is suitable for purpose. It may require another model or size to satisfy your personal needs.
  • Other products to help. If you feel like you are not gaining full satisfaction then there are other prodcuts to consider. We do sell incontinence seat pad, bed pad, and abri-soft bed pads for added protection. We also sell waterproof matress covers for an alternative solution at night time.
