Comfort and dignity for heavy wetters.
Our Extended Wear briefs are twice as absorbent as the leading briefs in long-term care.* High-tech polymers draw in large volumes of fluid and lock it away from skin before it can cause damage. The outcome: continence care that helps reduce IAD risk factors and enhances quality of life–and sleep.
The ideal brief
- Absorbs large amounts of fluid on contact
- Promotes air circulation, cooling skin and evaporating moisture
- Takes the guesswork out of continence management
- Maintains dryness and comfort
- Breathable backsheet allows air to flow throughout the whole brief.
- Ultra absorbent core with odor protection pulls wetness away quickly for ongoing protection.
- Anti-leak guards help reduce leakage, ensuring containment and dignity.
- Adjustable closures for a discreet, secure fit.
