Urinary incontinence is a relatively common problem that affects millions of people throughout the UK. It can be an embarrassing and uncomfortable problem to deal with, but with the right products and treatments including lifestyle changes and pelvic floor exercises it can be less of an issue.
Here at CareCo, we stock a wide range of products specially designed for people with urinary incontinence including incontinence pads & stretch pants, chair & bed protection and toilet solutions. In this article we’ll talk you through some of the products we sell on our website and how they can help users cope with their condition confidently.
Pads & Stretch Pants
Pads & stretch pants are a discreet way of combating small urinary leaks cause by a bladder weakness, allowing the user to cope with their condition independently and with confidence. They provide anti-leak security and are above all comfortable to wear throughout the day.
Pads & stretch pants are available in a range of different sizes and are made for both men and women. The anatomic shape provides a more comfortable fit and the super absorbent polymer material maximises absorbency and neutralises odours.
Peel off strips keep the pads in the right place, reducing the risk of leakage and the breathable backing material enables air flow to circulate keeping the skin dry.
Bed & Chair Protection
Our range of bed & chair protection products are specially designed to be comfortable and practical for those who suffer from urinary incontinence. Here are some of our best selling products:
The Wipeable Pillow is manufactured from the highest quality materials and is designed to meet the needs of the healthcare sector. It is used by the NHS, private hospitals and care homes because it can be easily cleaned, making it a great aid in the fight against infections.
Chair pads look and feel like regular seat covers, but are made from superior stay-dry materials making them the ideal choice for urinary incontinence sufferers. Suitable for use on wheelchairs, mobility scooters and standard furniture, chair pads have an absorbent core and stay in position thanks to its non-slip backing.
Chair pads are portable and discreet and can be used just about anywhere. These chair pads are easily cleaned and are reusable making them a cost effective product for those with bladder weakness problems.
Disposable Bed Pads
Disposable Bed Pads provide maximum comfort and durability thanks to its stay-dry surface that sucks up the moisture and a waterproof backing that protects the bed. These bed pads are reusable and easy to clean making maintenance a breeze, and can be purchased with or without tuck-in wings for a better fit.
Washable Bed Pads
Washable Bed Pads provide excellent protection and comfort at night – are also more economical and better for the environment.
Raised Toilet Seats
The Atlantis Toilet Seat fits most types of toilet and is ideal for those who find it hard to lower and raise themselves off a standard seat. Held firmly in place by non-slip pads, the toilet seat is comfortable to use and easy to clean. This particular raised toilet seat supports a user weight of up to 21 stone, and is light and compact enough to be stored away when not in use. We have a range of toilet seats that help people with mobility issues use the loo.
Mountway Solo Toilet Lift
The Mountway Solo Toilet Lift allows users who have muscle or joint weakness to get on and off the toilet without the aid of a helper. The easy to use controls and smooth mechanism effortlessly raises and lowers the user to and from the toilet, and there are no special modifications needed to install the lift.
The compact and lightweight design means that it can be easily moved for cleaning, or moved to different areas of the house when needed. The Mountway Solo Toilet Lift is powered by a removable rechargeable battery, meaning that there are no trailing electrical cables.
