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
1. Breathable backsheet allows air to flow throughout the whole brief.
2. Ultra absorbent core with odor protection pulls wetness away quickly for ongoing protection.
3. Anti-leak guards help reduce leakage, ensuring containment and dignity.
4. Adjustable closures for a discreet, secure fit.
