Finding the best incontinence product for you can be confusing and leave you feeling overwhelmed. When it comes to adult diapers, there are so many different types. Whether you’re looking for the best diapers for adults or just want some good leak-proof diapers, you have a few choices. Plastic-backed adult diapers and briefs can offer a unique solution set when considering the best full adult diapers.
When it comes to overnight diapers for adults, there are many features to look out for. Incontinence adult diapers are worn to keep you dry and odor free in the case of bladder loss or urinary and/or fecal incontinence. Any level of incontinence you may suffer can be contained well in a plastic backed diaper, whether it is low or high. But- if you need heavy duty coverage and need to contain a lot of liquid and odor, plastic backed are highly rated leak-proof diapers for adults.
Strong plastic is less likely to tear and cause a mess. You don’t want to worry about middle of the night leakage or tearing. You can be sure that everything will be contained with a plastic backed diaper like Depends Overnight Briefs or Tranquility ATN Briefs. Plastic backed diapers use tabs instead of Velcro, which makes them more secure and a better custom fit. If you sleep on your side, the tight fit of plastic backed diapers are designed to contain most messes.
The plastic backing will also contain odor better than a cloth diaper, which is especially important if you share a bed or are wearing your full adult diaper in a social situation. It is less likely to lose its shape like a cloth diaper, making it a more discrete choice under clothing.
There is nothing more convenient than tossing a soiled diaper once you are done with it. You don’t have to worry about washing or removing stains from a diaper in the trash. And when it comes to choosing the best diaper for adults and senior citizens, convenience is key. If you require a caregiver, being able to toss the diaper is one less task for them to think about for you. If you are still fully independent, not having to worry about reusing your diaper will give you the ease of mind to take on all your other daily tasks. Disposable diapers give you the freedom to travel and go about your day without worrying about running out of reusable diapers or washing soiled ones.
When choosing the best option in the world of adult incontinence briefs, some caregivers opt for the fail-safe impermeability of plastic backed briefs – paired with other leakproof measures such as leak guard and leg cuffs, and the convenience and customizable fit of Velcro like tabs, this style of adult brief is a failsafe choice – albeit an old-fashioned one. Today’s non-woven backsheets are every bit as impermeable as plastic backsheet adult briefs – and they are breathable. Plastic back sheet adult diapers are NOT breathable.
In summary, plastic backed briefs are truly impermeable (and some would say noisier), and for its fans, this type of product fills an important niche in the world of incontinence and caregiving – with an important asterisk that users of plastic backed products need to be monitored for skin health, as the microclimate of non-breathable undergarments may be a contributing cause for dermatitis in certain instances of care.
