Product Choice
When choosing a continence product it is important to consider that containing incontinent episodes is important for achieving social continence for the person’s overall health and wellbeing. Continence products should be chosen carefully so they fit well, feel good and are secure against leakage.
The choice of reusable underwear should take into account the amount and type of incontinence, personal preferences (comfort, appearance, colour), and the product’s absorbency, durability and ease of laundering.
The choice of reusable bedding/furniture protectors should consider, environment and personal preferences (comfort, appearance, colour), and the product’s absorbency, durability and ease of laundering.
The choice of continence skin care products should be suitable for the person’s skin health, hygiene, skin type, and skin protection needs from exposure to perspiration and incontinence.
