5 factors to consider when choosing the right incontinence wearables

Live life to the fullest by choosing a product that suits one’s lifestyle and activity level.

.Said Mr Peralta: “If a mobile senior values an active lifestyle that includes gathering with friends and exercising, my recommendation is to opt for a pants-style product that can absorb more fluid and lock in odour, while not compromising on comfort and fit.”

3,862 new Covid-19 cases in S’pore; record 18 deaths reported in a day brings tally to 264 Covid-19: Healthcare system still under pressure as hospitalised patients, ICU cases continue to rise, says MOH Covid-19: 'Stabilisation phase' restrictions extended by a month to Nov 21

On the other hand, using a tape product, like Depend Protect Tapes that provides up to 12 hours of absorbency, may be more suitable for use at night so the wearer can enjoy uninterrupted sleep, he added.3. The correct sizeWhen selecting the correct size for a tape or pants-style incontinence product, Mr Peralta advised going with hip measurements, as stated on the packaging.

While it may be tempting to choose a larger-sized product on the assumption that it may be more comfortable, this may actually lead to leakages. Conversely, selecting a size that is too small can cause discomfort, skin irritation and poor coverage.4. Factor in cost

Assess your budget before settling on a product, though it is still important to consider its overall quality, comfort level, fit and absorbency.While tape-on products may offer higher cost savings per piece, users may want to use different incontinence solutions for different occasions.

For example, less mobile seniors may use a tape-on product at night but if they are going out for a family dinner or medical appointment, they can switch to the pants-style option for convenience and ease of use when navigating public restrooms.5. Comfort matters

Depend Protect Plus Pants features an elastic waistband comprising materials developed using proprietary Kimberly-Clark technology.The product’s comfort level is another important feature. A good incontinence product will be able to prevent odour and irritation while keeping users fresh and comfortable both day and night.

For instance, Depend Protect Plus Pants features a waistband comprising two types of elastic materials that are developed using proprietary Kimberly-Clark technology. It maximises elasticity throughout the pants to provide a snug but comfortable fit, and reduces tension on the skin so that users are not left with unsightly marks from the elastic band, said Mr Peralta.
