Summer is finally here! Along with warm weather and sunny days come pool outings, beach trips, and other water fun. For those that love to swim, bowel incontinence might seem like a barrier to enjoying a favorite activity. However, thanks to Tranquility Products’ Swimmates® disposable swimwear, it does not have to be.
According to International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders, about 25 percent of men and women over 40 years old experience fecal incontinence. Standard adult diapers and incontinence pads should not be used for swimming, as they will become bloated with water and could cause waste to leak into the pool.
However, Swimmates® Disposable Swimwear is an underwear-style product that is specifically made for immersion. Disposable swimwear has many benefits that will remedy your concerns:
All of these features were designed with your comfort in mind. Customer B.F. from Wharton, OH wrote, “These products are by far the most ‘freedom-giving’ and really give me my life back. Free to be active, to travel, to swim again… without being wet or leaking.” You don’t need to worry that anything will interfere with your exercise, your enjoyment or your privacy with Swimmates® Disposable Swimwear.
Even if swimming is not part of your current exercise routine, it might be a good idea to add it to your routine. Swimming can be an excellent way to get physical activity without putting extra strain on the pelvic region. Other exercises such as crunches, double leg raises or weightlifting require the participant to bear down, which increases the risk of an accident. Since swimming lifts your chest, lengthens the spine and does not require that you bear down, it can actually help reduce incontinence symptoms.
Adult Incontinence & Swimming –
Exercising with Stress Incontinence –
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.
