Still Using Maxi Pads for the Unexpected Leak?
It's not uncommon for women to reach for maxi pads when they first experience an Unexpected Leak. When it happens, there are probably a few extra in the house already and everyone knows they're made to absorb liquid. The problem is that feminine protection isn’t designed to handle urine. So they don't offer the same protection as TENA® incontinence products.
Typical feminine products have channels, but not elastic to prevent leaks.
Typically a more open top sheet is designed for thicker substances like mentral fluid.
May not include a super absorbent polymer, or lower amounts of absoprtion power than an incontinence product.
Many feminine products simply use deoderant to mask odour.
TENA products include elastic barriers to prevent leaks and enhance fit.
A specially designed top sheet and distribution layers are intended for urine.
Super absorbant polymers quickly absorb and lock away fluid.
pH balance to control odour, rather than just mask it.
Our incontinence pads, guards, protective underwear and briefs are all specifically designed to absorb urine and lock it away. The material we use several times more absorbent than the materials found in feminine care products. That means you'd need a much heavier maxi pad to do the same work of a much lighter TENA product.
When TENA products absorb leaks, they pull moisture away from the body and trap odour. Unlike some feminine hygiene products that contain deodourants, our pH absorbent materials do more than mask odour—they help neutralize it. These deeply absorbent cores combine with our specially designed materials and elastic sides to help give you discreet protection.
All of this helps ensure that when you use TENA products instead of maxi pads, you'll have the confidence to go about your day with Fearless Protection™ that won't interfere with your lifestyle. To find protection fit for the way you live, browse our incontinence products www.tena.ca.
