What are Adult Diapers?
Adult diapers are disposable garments worn to help alleviate leakage from urinary or fecal incontinence. Adult diapers are also known as briefs and incontinence pads.
Benefits of Adult Diapers
Adult diapers can provide many benefits for people who are affected by incontinence.
1. Sense of Security and Safeness: wearing a diaper can take the stress off the wearer or caregiver from rushing to the bathroom when the urge of urination occurs. It also prevents leakage of urine from wetting regular clothing or bed.
2. Confidence: diapers increase the wearer's confidence to be out and about. It gives them the confidence to leave their house without worrying about leakage nor the need to locate the nearest bathroom so that they could rush over as soon as they felt the urge to urinate.
3. Convenience: diapers are easy to put on and take off.
