Choosing the right product
Choosing the right product is very important as the user’s comfort will depend on it. The first step that needs to be taken is to determine the level of incontinence you are dealing with. The level of incontinence, frequency of urine loss and the level of independence of a given person determine the selection of a pad or a diaper.
NOTE! It is often the case that people with incontinence use products which are inadequate to their condition – people with light incontinence use anatomically shaped pads, which are more expensive, and are dedicated for moderate and heavy incontinence, because a product with higher absorbency gives them a stronger sense of security. It is worth to calculate whether such absorbency choice is really necessary.
A well selected product not only provides everyday comfort, but also helps to avoid unnecessary costs.
How to determine the necessary absorbency level?
In order to determine that, it is best to use a urinary diary which makes assessing the incontinence level easy. It is worth taking the following factors into consideration:
the bladder can hold up to 500 ml of urine
we feel the urge to urinate mostly when the bladder is filled to 1/3 of its capacity
usually we pass about 200 ml of urine during single bladder voiding
it is important to be aware how much fluids one takes
we usually excrete about 80% of the liquids (water, soup, tea, juice) we took
the level of mobility of an incontinent person and their frequency of successful toilet use are equally significant.
