Underpads, also known as Chux, are super absorbent pads designed to protect the mattress from urine damage. The pad is placed above or below the linens (personal preference) and absorbs leaking liquid. Underpads have become the standard in long term care facilities and hospitals to protect mattresses and furniture from urine damage and reduce linen laundry. While underpads were designed to be used for adult incontinence to protect the mattress, innovators have found alternative uses for these wonderful pads.
I’m sure there are many more uses that you may know or use for disposable underpads, these are just a few. To share the unique way(s) you use underpads, share your story with us.

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.
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.
