People all over the world are similar in many respects and dealing with incontinence is no different culturally. A Danish company, Abena, has figured out how to improve upon what’s been used here in the U.S. since Depend was first introduced in 1978. These products are far superior to the brands here in the U.S. because they have superior absorbency and offer extreme breathability.
Because Abena products are so absorbent, you won’t need to change them as often. While they may cost a little more initially, using fewer of them will save you money in the long run. The benefits are cost in use, improved skin health and the most important – maintaining dignity.
Abena understands that there are different types of incontinence, which require a vast range of products to help people live dignified lives. Here are just a few examples of the products they produce:
Abri-Flex: An adult pull-up protective underwear with more elastics than any other brand. Abri-Flex Premium is the perfect fit for those who don’t want incontinence to slow them down. They are also far more absorbent than any other brand. Abri-Flex is available in 5 sizes for a better fit.
Abri-Form: Abri-Form is Abena’s complete range of all-in-one incontinence brief for moderate to heavy incontinence. They are designed to give optimum leakage security, while being a discreet and comfortable solution. They include flexible tapes for repositioning and are easily removable, an important feature especially for bed-ridden patients.
Abri-San: Abri-San pads are the ideal choice for many because they come in 8 different sizes and 11 different absorption levels. From the postpartum mom who suffers from weak bladder control, to the older gentleman who likes to travel the world and doesn’t want incontinence to stand in his way, Abena Abri-San has a pad for everyone. If you’re dealing with fecal incontinence, Abri-San Special is an excellent choice.
Fecal incontinence is a vastly under reported but fairly common problem. It is often associated with considerable costs due to the high frequency of changing and the challenge cleaning up after a fecal loss. For the user, embarrassing situations caused by leakage have a negative impact on their life and often lead to social isolation.
That is why Abri-San was invented. It’s the only product in the world specifically designed to help with fecal incontinence. The primary benefit for caregivers is containment. For the loved one, it’s maintaining dignity.
Abri-Man: Abena has an incontinence pad that is specifically shaped to fit the male anatomy. These pads offer extreme breathability, with extra absorption in the front.
What’s most important to you is the use of natural, skin sensitive ingredients. Not harsh chemical bleaching, dyes and inks. Because Abena is located in Denmark, they are an ecologically sensitive company and recycle 95% of waste generated. Moreover, 50% of the materials used are sourced from renewable sources.
