Parent with Child with Cerebral Palsy

Parent with Child with Cerebral PalsyWe discovered a great video post with some very useful information on how people deal with disabilities – specifically Cerebral Palsy. Chris Lenart, a vlogger (video blogger) with a Masters degree in Software Engineering, interviews Tamera Weeks, who has a daughter with Cerebral Palsy.

Tamera explains to Chris how different it was when her daughter Micah was first born to collect useful information on specialized care. Before the internet and YouTube, much of what Tamera learned was localized and through word of mouth.

These two very courageous people deal with disabilities like Cerebral Palsy as well as its many side issues like urinary incontinence.

Tranquility Products takes pride in making the lives of caregivers and product users better. Tamera uses Tranquility Products to help improve her daughter’s quality of life. To aid with her daughter’s incontinence issues due to her cerebral palsy, she uses two different Tranquility products – Tranquility SlimLine Original Disposable Briefs and Tranquility TopLiner Booster Contour Pads inside the briefs. The two products used together will give her daughter 8-12 hours of protection.

To find out more information about Tamera and her story, you can visit her YouTube channel or Facebook page.

Popular Questions

Health

Overflow incontinence is involuntary urination. The bladder muscles are unable to contain urine under pressure and feel like the bladder is unable to be emptied completely.

No. Cutting back on fluid intake can lead to dehydration, constipation and irritation of the bladder. It is true that certain types of fluids should be avoided such as alcohol and caffeine that irritate the bladder.

Products

No, doubling up on products that contain a moisture barrier will not increase absorption. Briefs, disposable underwear and pads/ liners are typically designed with a moisture proof backing that stops the urine from passing through. This approach to adding more capacity or addressing leakage concerns only works if the second product is a “flow-through” design with no moisture proof backing.

Latex-Free means that the product is not made from natural rubber (latex) or doesn’t contain any natural rubber.
