Shop High Absorbency Adult Incontinence Supplies
High absorbency incontinence products are for individuals who have lost control of bladder or bowel function, are immobile or bedridden. Constant containment and all-over protection are required for these individuals. They sometimes experience a sudden, intense urge to relieve their bladder or bowel. Heavy or severe incontinence can be a symptom of reflex, overflow, or functional incontinence.
- Reflex incontinence happens when the body experiences trauma resulting in frequent loss of control of the bladder or bowel with little to no warning.
- Overflow incontinence is when an individual experiences constant dribbling due to a full bladder or bowel. They cannot sense a full bladder or bowel due to nerve damage.
- Functional incontinence occurs when the urinary unit may be completely functional, but factors, like immobility or cognitive impairment prevents an individual from reaching the restroom in time.
Typically, high absorbency incontinence products hold to 17 oz. or more of liquid.
