Adult diapers, known as incontinence briefs, are an absorbency product that is used to contain both bowel and urinary incontinence. Adult diapers have tabs on either side, much like diapers for children. They are known for being the most absorbent option for those struggling with incontinence. Adult diapers for men and women come in unisex styles to ensure both genders obtain full coverage. Adult diapers can also be referred to as “containment briefs”, “briefs with tabs” or “adult briefs”. The diapers are very easy to change as they they can be applied and removed without removing pants. They are very easy to adjust as tabs can tighten or loosen around the waist as per preference of the individual wearing them. Caretakers prefer adult diapers as they are easy to change if the user is standing or lying down. Adult diapers come in plastic and cloth back options. Both are very sufficient in stopping leakage, however, some claim that cloth back tend to make less noise and are more discreet. To determine whether a product is plastic or cloth backed be sure to read the product description. This area will also display a sizing chart. To find the right size, measure around your hips and waist, using the larger of the two results, review the chart found in the description. Another great way to find out if a product fits is to try a sample. Healthwick has the largest incontinence sample selection in Canada.
Measure both the hips and the waist of the individual and use whichever measurement is larger to find the correct size. A properly fitted product should be snug on the body, but not tight.
