About Our Bariatric Adult Diapers
Tranquility is a pioneer of bariatric incontinence care, as the first manufacturer to offer a plus-sized diaper for adults. Over the years, finding new ways of caring for bariatric individuals has become a focus for our business. Tranquility bariatric diapers and related adult incontinence care products provide the ideal combination of maximum leakage protection and comfort, featuring options like 100% breathable materials and stretchy side panels that comfortably fit up to a 108” waist. We are one of the most popular brands for bariatric diapers and supplementary products, and are ideal for those experiencing heavy to severe loss of bladder control and bowel incontinence.
What are bariatric diapers?
Bariatric adult diapers include a variety of disposable incontinence care garments that are designed in larger waist sizes (for Tranquility, starting at 2XL and going up) for people of larger stature.
Why are bariatric diapers necessary?
Bariatric diapers were created to provide enhanced comfort, dignity and overall skin health protection for people of larger stature (or obese individuals who exceed a certain body mass index) and experience heavy to severe bladder loss and bowel incontinence. Tranquility’s bariatric diapers are designed with special stretchy sides and waistbands that smoothly expand to conform to the body without pinching the skin.
Who should use bariatric diapers?
For Tranquility’s extra-large diapers offering, the recommended body sizing starts at a 60″ waist and goes up to a 108″waist, while the suggested body weight is 250 lbs and greater.
Which bariatric diapers does Tranquility offer?
Tranquility has a full range of plus-size incontinence care diapers, starting with our original trio of bariatric tape-tab briefs. Available in three styles, our bariatric full-fit brief options are where fit meets comfort with maximum protection. Our brief-style bariatric products are designed with special side panels that smoothly expand and refastenable tabs to provide a secure fit without bunching up or pinching the skin, offering a true 108″ maximum fit.
Our three bariatric brief products have wetness indicators plus their own unique features and benefits to match your personal preference.
Tranquility Bariatric Briefs
The original Tranquility Bariatric Brief provides full-stretch comfort in a 3XL size for the perfect plus-sized fit. Breathable, stretchy side panels comfortably fit up to a 96” waist size. This full-fit brief has four refastenable tabs that can be opened and re-closed to provide the perfect fit and make it easy to check before changing.
These briefs give you a sense of security with soft elastic leg guards that stop leaks. Clothlike material is gentle against your skin and quiet when you move, with a moisture-proof lining that assures you fluid will not leak through.
This Bariatric Brief also provides maximum protection to maintain skin integrity. Comfortable, uniquely designed Kufguards® leg cuffs keep you leak-free by guiding urine and fecal loss into the premium superabsorbent core, which extends over your hips for added front and back security.
The core holds and locks in up to 34 oz of urine (for reference, the average adult releases 8-12 oz, or 1-1.5 cups, when they urinate) so fluid will not be squeezed out when you sit, stand up or move around.
A wetness indicator makes it easy and convenient to know when a change is needed, to protect your skin.
These are the plus-sized disposable brief of choice with maximum absorbency for obese individuals or those of larger stature who experience heavy to severe urinary incontinence or loss of bowel control.
Tranquility Premium HI-Rise Bariatric Briefs
In addition to the features of our original Bariatric Brief, the Tranquility Premium HI-Rise Bariatric Brief provides full-stretch comfort in a 3XL size with higher coverage than other diapers for the perfect plus-sized fit. They are designed with additional material that rises above the waist in the front, providing you extra assurance that you are protected. Breathable, stretchy side panels comfortably fit up to 96” waist measurements.
HI-Rise Bariatric Briefs offer additional security and coverage in a high-rise fit, if you experience heavy to severe loss of bladder or bowel control.
Tranquility Premium AIR-Plus Bariatric Briefs
In addition to the benefits of our original Bariatric Brief, Tranquility Premium AIR-Plus Bariatric Briefs provide other features for complete skin health protection with our largest of the bariatric sizes, with a 4-5XL plus-sized fit.
Protect your skin from damaging moisture with 100% breathable materials that allow heat, humidity and moisture vapor to escape and air to circulate. This is especially important where skin can fold and trap in damaging heat and moisture.
Among the largest and most comfortable briefs available, they are designed with fully breathable stretch sides for a true 108″ maximum waist size. Four closure tabs can be opened and re-closed to provide a customized fit and make it easy to check before changing.
These are the plus-sized brief of choice if you experience skin issues due to heavy to severe loss of bladder or bowel control.
