About Our Incontinence Pads & Liners

The term “pads” is used to refer to several different categories of health care products, including hygienic care items like menstrual pads, sanitary pads and other personal care products that are primarily used by women. Incontinence pads and incontinence liners are a different type of absorbent care product used by both men and women to absorb urine, and are available in many styles and capacity levels. While most brands of incontinence pads are typically designed to provide protection against light to moderate bladder leakage, Tranquility offers many different pad options in a range of styles and absorbencies, from light absorbency to maximum absorbency options.

How To Choose the Right Incontinence Pads

The blog describes how incontinence pads may also be called “guards” (especially men’s incontinence pads) or sometimes referred to as “incontinence liners” in that they line the underwear fabric as a discreet layer of protection against bladder leakage.

The article also explains the difference between personal care incontinence pads and “booster” incontinence pads. It’s important to be aware that incontinence pads have a waterproof plastic backing and are designed to be worn discreetly inside of normal underwear. Booster pads are designed to absorb fluid into its core until it reaches a certain amount, before allowing excess fluid to pass through. For this reason, booster pads must be worn inside another absorbent disposable garment that will absorb that additional fluid.

What to look for

Incontinence pads typically have an adhesive strip on the side facing away from your body that fastens to the underwear fabric to keep it from sliding around and causing discomfort or potential leaks. Other features you may wish to look for in an incontinence pad include:

  • Soft and breathable material for maximum comfort, added noise discretion and to help avoid rashes or skin breakdown
  • Larger oval or hourglass shape, or long length of the pad to provide extra coverage
  • Gentle leg elastics that conform more closely to your body, to give you the best sense of security and coverage

Some incontinence pads also feature superabsorbent polymers with advanced odor control technology that neutralizes pH and inhibits the growth of bacteria.

Can Incontinence Pads be used for Overnight Protection?

Tranquility Personal Care Pads are available in three levels of absorbency and in three sizes for individual needs, including an OverNight version for ultimate absorbency:

Which Incontinence Pads Offer the Maximum Absorbency?

In addition to the three Tranquility Personal Care Pads options outlined above, Tranquility also offers the Tranquility Adult Liner for maximum absorbency and extra coverage. Offering a larger surface area than retail pads, these liners give you a sense of security for heavy urinary incontinence. For added protection, the plastic outer material gives you confidence that fluid cannot leak through.

The ultra thin front liner has 24″ x 9″ of coverage and 15.5 oz of fluid capacity, for enhanced confidence yet retains the freedom to wear in your regular underwear.

Which Incontinence Pads Offer the Light Absorbency?

In addition to the Tranquility Personal Care Pads Super option, Tranquility also offers Male Guards for very light absorbency to moderate absorbency needs, with coverage where it counts.

Product features of the Male Guards include gentle side elastics that form a cup shape that securely and comfortably moves with your body, creating a barrier against leakage. The soft, absorbent core quickly draws and locks in up to 9.5 oz of fluid, for odor control and protecting sensitive skin from rash and breakdown.

The clothlike, moisture-proof material combined with an adhesive strip allows the guard to be securely worn in snug-fitting underwear, for quiet, rustle-free movement with no uncomfortable sliding, awkward adjusting or leaks.

Offering 12.25″ x 5.25″ of coverage area, Male Guards can handle the movements of an active lifestyle while providing leakage protection and eliminating urine odors.
