An adult pad is a comfortable, low-profile way for adults with minor incontinence issues to have the leak protection they need. Parentgiving has diaper pads and liners from trusted manufacturers such as Attends, Dignity, Poise and Capri that have high absorbency in a small size. Urine pads for adults can be worn inside regular underwear to catch leaks and retain moisture without irritating the skin. Some incontinence pads can also be added to adult diapers and briefs for double-barreled protection at night or for long days in public. We want you or your patient to have the right pad and will help you find it in our selection.
There are many types of diaper pads for adults to provide different levels of security and well-being. We have light bladder control pads to combat small amounts of leakage, contoured pads for better fit, high-absorbency pads for more severe issues or nighttime wear and other styles. Order liners that use adhesive strips to keep them in place all day or pads with odor reduction to keep things smelling fresh. More and more companies now make gender specific male guards and female incontinence pads to go with their unisex adult pads. These pads are designed differently to account for gender differences and provide an optimal fit.
Each style comes in multiple sizes so people can wear what's right for them. With so many incontinence pad options available, we understand that many people can be confused or overwhelmed by the choices.

To start disposable adult liners and pads have many different names. Theyre also called guards shields and beltless pads. What they have in common is that they are designed to be worn inside underwear&mdasheither regular panties or briefs or incontinence briefs (often reusable ones that last through dozens of washings or more).
Within adult liners and diaper pads specifically designed as incontinence solutions there are many differences between products both in terms of the level of absorbency offered (there are pads that may even be sufficient for overnight use) and their shape&mdashits not just adult diapers that are contoured for men and women even incontinence pads are shaped with anatomical differences in mind.
Adult incontinence pads made to go inside regular underwear typically have a waterproof backing with adhesive strips to help it stay put. Those designed for incontinence undergarments may slip into a compartment and not have the adhesives.
Virtually all incontinence pads have absorbent layers that draw in liquid and capture it some with special material such as liquid absorbing polymers that turns into a gel when activated by liquid&mdashurine is trapped and your skin stays dry. A slight loss of urine is often associated with stress incontinence&mdashoccurring with activities that exert some stress on the abdomen like coughing sneezing laughing or lifting a heavy object. For this light to moderate level of incontinence thinner incontinence pads can provide the protection you need. For other conditions that have led to a greater level of incontinence some adult liners can absorb up to two cups of liquid.
Most beltless pads designed to trap a lot of liquid have gathers on the sides to help contain liquid flow others have channels designed into the pad to help absorb it. The width and length of the pads differ from brand to brand often depending on whether theyre made for men or women. One more point to keep in mind: The more active you are the more snugly youll want your underwear to fit to keep the adult pad from shifting.Another option is the belted incontinence pad. This design usually has gathers on the sides to help contain liquid flow and an elastic belt that fits around the waist to hold it in place. Some elastic belts come with buttons and others with Velcro. The pad area offers fuller coverage front to back.
