Er Te Es - An adult diaper is a diaper made to be worn by a person with a body larger than that of an infant or toddler. Diapers become necessary for adults who suffer from various conditions, such as incontinence, mobility impairment, or dementia. Adult diapers are made in various forms, including those resembling traditional child diapers, underpants, and pads resembling sanitary napkins (known as incontinence pads).
In the medical community, professionals are trained to use alternative terms such as "briefs" rather than "diapers" for the sake of dignity, as the term "diapers" is associated with children and therefore may have a negative connotation. In practice, though, most health care workers are accustomed to calling them diapers, especially those that resemble children's diapers.
People with medical conditions which cause them to suffer from urinary or fecal incontinence often require diapers or similar products because they are unable to control their bladders or bowels. People who are bedridden or in a wheelchair, including those with good bowel and bladder control, may also wear diapers because they are unable to access the toilet independently. Those with cognitive impairment, such as dementia, may require diapers because they may not recognize their need to reach a toilet.
Absorbent incontinence products come in a wide range of types (drip collectors, pads, underwear and adult diapers), each with varying capacities and sizes. It is important to note that the largest volume of products that is consumed falls into the lower absorbancy range of products, and even when it comes to adult diapers, the cheapest and least absorbent brands are used the most. This is not because people chose to use the cheapest and least absorbent brands, but rather because medical facilities are the largest consumer of adult diapers, and they have requirements to change patients as much as every 2 hours. As such, they select products that meet their frequent changing needs, rather than products that could be worn longer and/or more comfortably.
Specialty diapers are required for swimming or pool therapy. These are known as Swim Diapers, or containment swim briefs. They are intended mainly for fecal incontinence, however they can also be useful for temporary urine containment, to maintain dignity while transferring from change room to pool. There are several brands available. The most effective style is one that is made from a stretch fabric, such as the one manufactured by Discovery Trekking. link label The stretch allows for increased adjustability for a snug fit. They are washable and reusable. There are no disposable adult swim diapers.
