There is a lot of thought and consideration that must go into choosing the right incontinence products. To help you out, this guide will show you all you need to know about choosing the right products for you. Everyone is different, so everyone will have different needs. And every single incontinence products out there has its own particular pros and cons. You can learn about those, as well as everything else you need to know about choosing incontinence products by reading the guide below.
The Level of Protection
A light level of protection is the lowest level you can find. These products are suitable for people with slight losses that often occur when sneezing or coughing. So, if your problem is relatively minor, you will only need a light level of protection.
The next level of protection is known as moderate. These products are suitable for people who suffer urine loss when not reaching the toilet on time. It can also help people who experience losses after they have been to the toilet.
For people who experience larger leaks, such as their bladder emptying without warning, heavy products off the right level of protection. These can also help people who experience this while in bed at night.
Heavy and uncontrollable incontinence should be combated with severe incontinence products.
The vast majority of incontinence products you will find are completely unisex, meaning they can be used by men and women easily. However, there are some products out there that are designed to be used by men or women specifically. Check out these products and see if they are suited to you and your needs. For most people, unisex products will do the job perfectly well, though.
Washable or Disposable?
Washable incontinence products have the advantage of being reusable. So, you won’t have to get rid of them when you have used them. This can save you a lot of money because you won’t need to keep buying new things. It’s something that many people can benefit from. You should try weigh up the options, though.
If you do choose to use washable products, you will need to make sure that you wash them thoroughly and always have enough on hand and ready to use when you need them. This is less of a problem when you use disposable products because they can be bought in bulk, and it’s easy to make sure you always have enough. Give this some thought and consider which kind of products will be best for you.
