It is important to use only one product at a time. Choosing a product that matches the person's incontinence needs as well as fits skin-snug against the body will encourage fluid to absorb evenly, and will help prevent leakage and will be more comfortable to wear.
Double padding or adding an insert is never the way to go. When an insert is added, both products will fit poorly, feel uncomfortable and bulky, result in leakage, skin irritation, and discomfort to the person wearing the product.
SCA Personal Care manufacturers the TENA brand of quality disposable absorbent products. These products are available in a wide range of levels to address each individual's own needs for protection, containment, comfort, and dignity.
Family, caregivers, and the person who will be using the product should consider the most appropriate size, style, and level of protection to meet the unique needs of each individual.
A small TENA pad may be the best solution for a person who is experiencing light incontinence while a more absorbent TENA brief may be required for handling larger volumes of uncontrollable urine loss.
