Incontinence Products FAQs
What are incontinence products?
Incontinence products are designed to manage the symptoms of urinary or faecal incontinence. At Millercare, we stock pads and pants from leading UK brands, like Tena, ID Expert and Lilie Supreme.
If you struggle to travel to and from the bathroom, we have many commodes in our incontinence range. The Millercare collection also includes wet and dry wipes, ideal for sanitising those with reduced bladder or bowel function.
We want to give people the comfort, hygiene and confidence to deal with incontinence in their everyday lives.
Who can benefit from using incontinence products?
While incontinence is commonly associated with older adults, people of any age can struggle. It can be a short or long-term condition, developing suddenly or over a long period.
Pregnant and postpartum women: Pregnancy and childbirth can weaken pelvic muscles, leading to short-term incontinence. Incontinence products, like pads and pull-ups, allow women to go about their lives without worrying about leaks.
Post-surgery patients: After certain procedures, like prostate or pelvic surgery, incontinence can become a short-term side effect. Incontinence products can aid recovery by managing leakage until normal bladder or bowel control is regained.
Athletes and active individuals: Sometimes, engaging in strenuous physical activities can put pressure on the bladder. Athletes may experience leaks during intense training, and incontinence products can help them continue their lives without interruption.
Individuals with cognitive impairments: Degenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer's or dementia, often impair a person’s ability to control their bowels or bladder. Incontinence products can help individuals maintain their dignity when accidents happen.
What types of incontinence products are available at Millercare?
As mobility specialists, we offer a vast selection of incontinence products:
PPE: PPE (personal protective equipment) is required in healthcare environments where incontinence is common, like palliative care, hospitals and nursing homes. We stock aprons, vinyl gloves, sanitisers and masks for infection control and prevention.
Pads and pants: Millercare houses a diverse range of pads and pants, catering to varying levels of incontinence. We offer adult pull-up pants, all-in-one slips, and incontinence pads for male and female anatomies.
How do I choose the right incontinence product for me?
To select the right incontinence product, consider the following factors:
What is your current level of incontinence? Whether light, medium or heavy, you’ll need to select pants and pads capable of supporting you.
What is your preferred style? Adult diapers, pads and briefs offer different levels of discreteness.
When will you be wearing them? Taking your daily routines into consideration may make selecting products easier.
Are incontinence products discreet to wear?
Yes, we stock a range of discreet incontinence products for public wear.
They are often slim and contoured to fit seamlessly under clothing. Our incontinence pads and pants allow individuals to go about their daily routines without drawing any attention.
Are there eco-friendly options for incontinence products?
Yes, we also stock eco-friendly incontinence products.
Instead of using disposable pads and pants, you can purchase a pair of washable underwear. With waterproof liners and absorbent pads, these products fit closely around the legs to prevent leakage and can be reused once washed and sanitised.
