Incontinence, a term that describes the accidental or involuntary loss of urine from your bladder or a bowel movement can happen to us as we age, much in the same way that loss of hearing and eyesight can affect us.
While there are varying types of incontinence, it’s known that approximately eight million people in the UK live with it in some form. Of these eight million, one in four are women and one in five are men.
However, there are loads of products out there from a variety of brands, designed to help those living with incontinence.
Incontinence products and brands
While there are loads of products available to you, which includes everything from a daily incontinence pad to gender-specific incontinence pads for men and women and even incontinence products for beds, certain products will be better for certain people. These generally come down to the brand providing the product and how they suit your lifestyle.
This being said, there are brands out there that provide incontinence products that aren’t just pads for yourself or your bed. Below, we’ve highlighted the brands we work with and recommend to those living with incontinence, caregivers and professionals.
When it comes down to the products being used, it isn’t always about the pads. That’s where a brand like Senset comes into play.
Perfect for use both at home and in care homes, but more suited to the latter, Senset provide a range of patient cleaning products. Offering both wipes and cleansing foam, these care solutions can be used to improve a person’s experience while preventing the risk of infection that could occur if a person hasn’t cleaned properly.
While the wipes are used to help wash a patient within a healthcare environment, moving away from soap and water methods, the foam is used to loosen any soiling quickly to reduce the need to rub the patient’s skin and avoid skin breakdown.

While many care facilities will have specific means of waste disposal, from certain bins and removal methods, the situation can be a little different for those living at home and caregivers.
That’s what makes Sangenic extremely helpful. Providing an incontinence product you probably didn’t know you needed, Sangenic Easiseal Bins offer a hugely convenient way of disposing of incontinence products while at home.
Easy to use and hygienic, these bins can store many products before they’re moved to an outside bin, removing the need to put them in with your regular waste. Meanwhile, the refill cassettes are fragranced and anti-bacterial, helping to prevent the spread of germs while offering odour protection within the home.
