Tranquility Select Disposable Absorbent Underwear - Heavy Absorbency is for incontinence. The inner core is highly absorbent to wick away moisture to help keep your skin dry. By locking urine away, this Tranquility Select Disposable Underwear protects you from other problems as well. For instance, when urine mixes with stool, it can promote the growth of bacteria and viruses.
Each pair comes with a soft, cloth-like outer covering built from non-woven polypropylene. A soft inner lining (made from wood pulp) caresses your skin to increase comfort. Super Absorbent Polymers in the core lock moisture and odors away. Breathable sides allow for airflow, which helps reduce heat. Lower heat helps bring more comfort and less sweating. That promotes a healthier environment free from fungal infections.
An elastic waistband and leg cuffs create a better, more comfortable fit and help prevent leaks. The full-rise design of the Select Incontinence Underwear provides support for the buttocks. Blue waist elastics indicate the back of the Select Underwear. Each pair also comes with the words FRONT and BACK imprinted on them.
Changing the Select Disposable Heavy Absorbency Underwear is easy as well. They slip on and off, just like a traditional pair of underwear. But they also have tear-away side seams so you can make a change without the need to get out of bed.
How the Product Works
It pulls moisture away through a process called wicking. Wicking works through capillary action. Liquid molecules stick to each other through the forming of hydrogen bonds. Oxygen (found on the core's fibers) has a stronger pull than the hydrogen bonds.
Thousands of fibers create a large surface area that comes in contact with a large percentage of the liquid's molecules. That builds enough of a pull to move the moisture.
When the liquid comes into contact with the Super Absorbent Polymers, the polymers swell and form into a gel, trapping the moisture. The moisture cannot escape, even under pressure.
Protecting Against Leaks Around the Legs
- The product has two cuffs around each leg - an outer leg and an inner leg.
- The inner cuff is proprietery (Kufgaurd) - it directs wetness back into the core of the underwear.
- Both cuffs work together to reduce or eliminate leaks.
Who the Product Is For?
- Youth with incontinence
- Adults with incontinence
- Care facilities
How Often Will I Need to Change?
Your circumstances will vary, depending on your size, your bladder's capacity, how much liquid you drink, and what type of incontinence you have. Here are some general guidelines. The average adult bladder holds around 16 ounces of urine. The capacity of each pair is relative to its size.
Youth, X-Small, and Small hold 14.5 ounces.
Medium, Large, X-Large, and 2X-Large hold 19 ounces.
How is this Product Different?
The shape of the compact core gives you an optimal fit while still providing excellent absorbency. This better fit gives you great protection even while you engage in your favorite activities. It looks and feels like traditional underwear, with a thin profile that remains well-hidden under your clothes. There is no rustling or other sounds when you move.
