Types of Incontinence

Stress Incontinence


- Stress incontinence is the involuntary leakage of a small amount of urine that can occur when laughing, sneezing, coughing, lifting heavy objects or after prostate surgery.

- Stress incontinence is usually best managed with light bladder leakage pads (also known as bladder control pads or Poise pads) or male guards.

- Light bladder leakage pads and male guards have an adhesive strip on the back that holds them in place in your undergarment and are available in a wide variety of absorbencies from light absorbency to ultimate absorbency.

Urge Incontinence


- Urge incontinence (also known as an overactive bladder) is the leakage of small to large amounts of urine that can occur when the person cannot make it to the bathroom after having the urge to urinate.

- Urge incontinence is usually best managed with protective underwear (also known as pull ups or pull ons) or belted shields, although for light urge incontinence bladder leakage pads may suffice.

- Protective underwear goes on and off like regular underwear and is available in both regular (extra / moderate) and enhanced (super plus / maximum) absorbencies.

Functional Incontinence


- Functional incontinence occurs when the person physically has difficulty moving to the bathroom or communicating the need to go to the bathroom and
can include leakage of large amounts of urine and / or fecal matter.

- Functional incontinence is usually best managed with adult diapers (also known as adult briefs).

- Adult diapers go on in a manner similar to infant diapers and use tabs on the side with which to fasten the adult brief closed.

- Adult diapers are available in daily wear (regular) and extended wear (enhanced) absorbencies.
