How to choose the right incontinence product
In order to choose the most suitable urinary incontinence product for you, you must also bear in mind 3 very important criteria:
- The product’s effectiveness. The absorbency offered by the top sheet and the core must be instant, for the best possible results. The product’s top sheet must be made using special ultra-absorbing technology, so as to minimize the time during which urine comes into contact with the user’s skin, leaving it dry and thus helping to reduce irritation. Further, the core’s absorbency must guarantee that the largest possible quantity of urine is retained inside the core and, at the same time, trap odour with Odour Control technology. In this way it will offer the user the best possible comfort, safety and discretion. Look for incontinence products made with certified odour minimization technology by recognized foreign laboratories, like the certification that the Iasi products have received from the specialized German Olfasense laboratory.
- The comfort offered by the product’s fit. When the product chosen is of the right size, it will fit the user’s body correctly and will offer them comfort and freedom of movement (especially in the case of mobile users), as well as protection from leakages. The materials must allow skin to breathe and prevent the feeling that sweating makes it difficult to use the incontinence product over prolonged periods of time.
- The skin-friendly properties of the product. It is important that the materials from which the product is made offer skin not just the best possible protection, but also sensitive care. A uniquely delicate breathable extra soft top sheet and ingredients such as aloe vera to soothe and vitamin E to moisturize the skin are elements that help the user’s epidermis during daily and prolonged use. Further, the products must have been certified (CE) by the National Organization for Medicines and been dermatologically tested.
