Adult diapers come in two designs – Nappy type and Panty type.
The nappy type diapers are for people who are bed-ridden or those that need to wear them while at home or overnight, while the pull-on panty type diapers are for mobile people.
The advantages of wearing pull-on panty type diapers are as follows:
1.They are relatively thin and discreet. No one will know that one is wearing them.
2.Just like regular underwear they can be easily removed and worn again. So, if one has access to a toilet, one can use it by pulling down the diaper, urinating into the toilet and pulling the diaper up back in position afterwards.
3.In case no suitable toilet is available, as most diapers are geared to absorb at least a litre of liquid, one can urinate into the diaper without worries.
4.The diapers will absorb all the liquid and keep the outer side and the inner side dry. This prevents problems due to the skin being constantly being damp.
5.The diapers are also designed to contain smell so even when the diaper is saturated, no urine smell will emanate from them.
The advantages of nappy-type diapers are:
1.They are highly absorbent
2.They have wetness indicators to tell you when they need to be changed.
3.They maintain dryness on the inside as well as outside.
4.They are easy to put on for others, especially for those that are bed-ridden.
5.They prevent smells from escaping.
Though diapers are not very environmentally friendly, they are the best option that is currently available for problems relating to bladder weakness.
