No one wants to be defined by their incontinence. Adults want and need to be mobile, whether it’s traveling on public transportation or going for a walk, but it’s a quandary when you never know when incontinence will strike. It’s not easy to be tethered to a bathroom and even worse if the undergarment is not secure, comfortable or absorbent. Here is how VELCRO® Brand products enhance absorbency, security and comfort for adult incontinence products.
The CDC recommends 150 minutes of exercise each week to prevent chronic health conditions so adults need a garment that supports their condition and adapts to their lifestyle. This means garments are expected to be flexible for range of motion and adjustable to maximize comfort and various body types. In addition to this versatility, adult incontinence products can’t compromise on absorbency, which means they need to have a close fit that remains secure while staying active.
VELCRO® Brand fasteners are incorporated into disposable adult incontinence products to enhance the fit and security while in use. These fasteners are designed for performance and comfort for those who depend on them.
Various fastener types have been tried over the years such as buttons, adhesive tapes and snaps, but those are limited in terms of adjustability and are challenging to line up and fasten, especially for those with limited dexterity.
VELCRO® Brand FLEX-ZONE™ fasteners are easy to mate together and have a large landing zone that makes them easy to adjust. With the correct fit, this helps better secure the garment, maximizing absorbency.
VELCRO® Brand products are made from soft, flexible materials that are easy on the skin and adapt to assist with range of motion and reduce irritation. Furthermore, FLEX-ZONE™ fasteners are adhesive-free and can be OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified, giving the user peace of mind that fewer chemicals are used in their garment.
