As we get older, our bodies don’t function quite as well as they used to. Our hair begins to gray, our digestive systems get pickier, and our skin gets thin and loose. The punch line of many jokes about old age, however, is the incredibly embarrassing incontinence problem. We’re in diapers when we’re young and we’re in diapers when we’re old, but there’s nothing funny about having an issue in public without protection, and not being able to do anything about it.
Luckily, a handful of medical supply companies have taken note of the need and have responded in ways that are sure to exceed your expectations. They offer a great selection of pads, diapers, liners and catheters that will relieve the tension of wondering if you’re going to have an incident in public. The diapers, pads and liners range from full to minimal coverage, depending on your unique personal needs. Many adult diapers are too much like baby diapers, rustling with even the most minute movement, cutting off circulation because it’s too tight around the legs or waist, and with thick padding on both the front and back. All that extra padding is just unnecessary, especially since we’re all relatively certain that our lower backs won’t be the source of any incident.
If you look through the online catalog of medical supplies online, you’ll find protective undergarments, as opposed to adult diapers. The protective undergarments look like full-coverage underwear, but with built-in padding between the legs, and extending just far enough on either side for complete protection.
Now wait a minute – catheters? Aren’t Catheters a last resort for patients with bladder control problems? Internal catheters are generally reserved for those with severe medical conditions like paralysis or recovery from surgery on or around the genital area, but external catheters do exist, and they’re nowhere near as uncomfortable. External male catheters, like the Texas catheter, are generally made of soft silicone and fit snugly around the shaft of the penis. Also called condom catheters, they feature a funnel at the tip, which drains into a pouch attached to the patient’s leg. External male catheters greatly reduce the risk of infection and are much more comfortable.
