Why choose Unique Wellness Superio Briefs?
Diaper rash (diaper dermatitis) is a skin problem caused by the skin staying wet, rubbing from the brief, and contact with chemicals in the urine and stool. The skin may look red, raw, scalded, or burned. The most common misconception that people have about Wellness Superio Signature Brief is: "how is it that one can be asked to remain in them for 8 hours?" Our response is – When using standard products, how can you allow someone to get exposed to urine every 2-3 hours and allow exposure for at least half an hour (or more) until they are changed? By then the damage is done!
Wellness Superio Signature Brief fully absorbs all liquids and moves them to a separate layer thereby always keeping the skin dry. The exposure never occurs. Wellness Superio Brief is good enough for astronauts because they cannot be susceptible to any form of infection in space. With this product, you rarely need creams or ointments because the key is prevention altogether. Superio Signature Brief is a simple, cost effective 3/ day system that will prevent any skin breakdowns and rashes.
Space Age Technology
Wellness Superio Signature Brief is based on the same principles as the Maximum Absorbency Garments (MAGs) developed by NASA. In creating the MAG, NASA developed a super absorbent polymer capable of absorbing up to 60 times its own volume. Super absorbent material, like starch, is made from molecules that are banded together with millions of identical units.
The adult-sized brief with extra absorption material is used because astronauts cannot remove their spacesuits during long operations. Three MAGs are given during space shuttle missions, one for during launch, reentry, and a spare in case reentry needs to be tried again.
Unlike other briefs that have a single core absorption system, the Wellness Brief has a triple layered core just as NASA's MAG so that all of the moisture is retained away from the skin in a separate layer and what is actually against the skin feels dry. This is called InconTek technology. Keeping urine away from the skin is the key to prevent urinary tract infections, severe irritation, and many other incontinence related problems.
Since disposable diapers are discarded after a single use, usage of disposable briefs increased the burden on landfill sites, and increased environmental awareness about using regular disposable diapers. A British based Environmental Agency concluded that disposable diapers have the same environmental impact as reusable diapers when the effect of laundering cloth diapers is taken into account.
One should also account for the vast amounts of the phosphates released into the global water supply from the laundry detergents used to clean all of these sheets and cloth diapers. This also includes pollution, electricity, and fuel from manufacturing these detergents, and to top it off all of these depleted laundry containers end up in landfills. Research conducted by Arthur D. Little, Inc. concluded that laundering a cloth diaper over the course of its lifetime consumes up to six times the water used to manufacture a single-use diaper.
The multi-functional capabilities of InconTek technology will reduce usage thus lower the amount of incontinence products added to landfill by over 70%!!! It will also dramatically reduce the carbon footprint from the fuel and electricity used for manufacturing briefs, bed pads, and laundering sheets. Additionally, researchers have confirmed that the super absorbent material that we use poses no risk to soil, groundwater, organisms or plant life and can be safely incinerated, serving as a fuel source without any adverse effect on boiler operations or stack emissions.
Wellness Superio Signature Brief has a unique layered system that keeps the area free of the odors associated with incontinence by containing them within the brief.
