Occasionally, an all-in-one or pull up product does not do the job of providing you with enough confidence and absorbency to get through the day. Feeling anxious about any leaks happening in not something you should have to put up with.
A great way to ensure you feel protected if you find your incontinence product is not efficient enough is to use a booster pad.
What is an Incontinence Booster Pad?
Booster pads are designed to be worn inside disposable undergarments, such as a brief, pull up product or pants to provide extra absorbency against leakages. Booster pads, unlike diapers or disposable underwear, are simply inserted into the pants and can be removed once they are used. Once used, they can be replaced for all day long protection. The greatest advantage of booster pads is that they allow for new protection without you having to completely change product, benefitting those who are less mobile in particular. Booster pads are easy to use, provide you with additional confidence and protection and often come at a low price.
How do booster pads work?
As soon as the booster pad fills up, the design ensures that any excess urine will flow through the pad’s porous backing onto the absorbent undergarment you’re already wearing. With the addition of a booster pad, you can relax for a long time without having to change your briefs as often.
When should Booster Pads be used?
Some situations where using a booster pad can be particularly beneficial are as follows:
Travelling long distances. The added absorbency of booster pads means you will be able to sit through long car journeys, flights and train journeys with ease.
For added capacity at night. Many people find they tend to experience more leaks during the night. Using a booster pad in addition to another product during the night can help ensure you wake up fully dry and protected.
During public events and occasions. A booster added to a diaper is a great way to avoid untimely leaks and provide you with extra confidence during times where you fear leakages the most.
Booster pads are also particularly beneficial for people who are bedridden or wheel chair bound, as they reduce the need for a full diaper change.
