3 Ways Other Than Diapers To Deal With Incontinence

3 Ways Other Than Diapers To Deal With Incontinence
Kevin Cleary

Dealing with incontinence can be an embarrassing and even humiliating issue. Once we choose the appropriate briefs/diaper for us the next question we need to answer is are there any other products out there that can make my life easier? 

There are a wide range of high-quality products on the market to help protect your self-esteem and quality of life. A little research will go a long way in finding incontinence care products that will help you deal with your incontinence. Some of these incontinence supplies include -  

1. Bedwetting Alarms 

These devices are specifically designed alarm systems for people who have incontinence at night. They detect moisture and leakage and alerts and awakens the wearer. This hopefully minimizes bedwetting and incontinence episodes. 

  • For example, the DFree Incontinence Wearable Device is a wearable device specially designed for seniors and people with physical limitations who suffer from loss of bladder control. It supports self-toiling by continuously monitoring the bladder and predicting when to go to the bathroom. 
  • The Urocare DRI Excel Bed-Wetting Alarm System comes with Urosensor Urine Detector. When the Urosensor is wet with the first drops of urine, it sends a signal to the extra loud DRI Excel alarm unit and triggers the alarm treatment has begun. Special electronics stop electricity from reaching the Urosensor once the alarm is triggered preventing urine from becoming acidic. 

2. Underpads 

The use of these pads can protect mattresses and other furniture such as chairs from the embarrassment of incontinence. 

  • For the protection of upholstered chairs, there are options such as the Cardinal Health Reusable Chair Pad that keeps chairs dry and clean. It has an absorbent inner liner and vinyl backing to protect the surface from fluid damage and soiling. Plus, it offers multiple colors to match your upholstery as best as possible!! 
  • The Cardinal Health Essentials Quilted Reusable Underpads has four-layer protection pads. Its top layer (patient side) is 80% cotton and 20% polyester blend (referred to as IBEX). The bottom (bedside) is a two-layer PVC material that provides a waterproof non-slip backing. 

The use of these products can help sufferers maintain their self-esteem and quality of life. 


3. Exercise 

Some incontinence symptoms can be treated with exercise, but you must target the proper areas. In some patients with incontinence, the muscles that control the bladder can become weakened whether by injury or old age. If these muscles become stronger, the ability to control our bladders can also increase. Pelvic exercises are a great way to target the correct muscles.  

  • The kGoal Boost Kegel Exerciser for Men is designed to measure Kegel exercises while you sit on the boost without inserting it. It combines workout guidance, exercise tracking, biofeedback, and games to help you with pelvic floor exercise. It helps strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and improves the performance of the bladder, uterus, small intestine, and more. This Kegel Exerciser prevents urine leakage and accidental passing of poop (stool) or gas. 
  • The kGoal Kegel Exerciser With Biofeedback is an interactive training system (device + free app) for women that offers a unique combination of guidance, tracking, biofeedback, and personalized workouts. kGoal is made up of 100% phthalate-free. This Kegel Exerciser is also splash-resistant for easy cleaning and comes with an eco-friendly, built-in USB rechargeable battery. kGoal is compatible with both iOS and Android phones and tablets. The Squeeze Pillow (the insertable part) has a maximum rigid diameter of 1.5 inches.
