Incontinence is a condition that impacts approximately 50% of women while 24% of men experience incontinence. It’s a condition that is not easy to adapt to and can limit adults who wish to get those most out of their lifestyles. To solve this, it’s important for users to choose adult incontinence products that are discreet, absorbent and enable flexibility and movement throughout daily activities. To maximize these benefits and establish trust between brands and customers, VELCRO® Brand closures can add functionality to adult incontinence briefs while reducing the use of adhesives.
Adding Flexibility & Comfort to Adult Incontinence Briefs
For most adults, 30 minutes of physical activity a day is recommended. To live a long healthy life, adults need to keep moving, but they can’t let their incontinence slow them down. That is why it is critical for adult incontinence brief brands to choose soft and flexible materials that move with their customer.
VELCRO® Brand fasteners are soft to the touch, lightweight and easy to adjust to align with all body types. This is important as adults move throughout their day on walks and during exercise. The easy to open and close fastener also provides ease of use for customers who may struggle with dexterity challenges.
If it Fits Better, It Absorbs Better
Aligning to various body types is important not only for ease of use and movement, but for better absorbency. Since VELCRO® Brand closures do not have fixed landing zones such as buttons or snaps, they are better optimized to adjust to anyone, because not all bodies are the same. When the adult incontinence briefs are better aligned with the user’s body, this greatly improvement absorbency and prevents leakage.
Adhesive Free Closures to Reduce Chemicals in Materials
Since 88% of consumers will choose a brand based on the difference they are making in the world, it’s important to consider the quality of materials that go into adult incontinence briefs. VELCRO® Brand FLEX-ZONE™ Fasteners are adhesive free and can be OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified. These specifications can give consumers the peace of mind that they are choosing products made with fewer chemicals that will have a lower impact on the environment when they enter the waste stream.
