Urinary incontinence can be an embarrassing condition. While considered to be more common among women, several men also do suffer from urinary incontinence. However, manufacturers of medical and healthcare products now have a wide range of urinary incontinence products that can prove to be very useful especially for men with incontinence issues.
Incontinence pads can be used to protect from any dribbling of urine that may be caused, especially in men after prostate surgery. These are like “V” shaped sanitary pads, which can be attached to the inner side of one’s underwear using the adhesive strip. While most gender neutral pads come as a long rectangular strip, men’s’ incontinence pads are specifically shaped to offer maximum protection in the penile region.
Male guards are another kind of urinary incontinence products that are designed to absorb leaking urine, keeping the surface of the skin dry.
Many manufacturers also offer an exclusive range of men’s urinary incontinence products such as highly absorbent incontinence underwear that can be easily pulled up or down like regular underwear or boxers. Some incontinence underwear also has an addition booster pad attached that can absorb up to 9 oz. of fluid. Many of these products can be machine washed and re-used.
Disposable adult diapers are another option to consider under urinary incontinence products for men. Many adult diaper brands come with a wetness detection strip that indicates when it is time to change and also use advanced technology to keep to keep the surface of the diaper odor free and dry.
The incontinence clamp is designed to be clamped around the penis to prevent the flow of urine. When urinating, the clip around the penis is released, facilitating the free flow of urine. Incontinence clamps are made of a variety of materials such as plastic, thermoplastic, cloth, foam, non-latex rubber, and also stainless steel. Generally, it is preferable to opt for an incontinence clamp that is both lightweight and discreet.
With such a wide range of urinary incontinence products available, men need no longer be embarrassed on account of their incontinence related issues and can lead normal and active lives.
