How TENA helps with home incontinence care
Faster absorption means fewer leaks and laundry changes
Urine is thin and fast flowing and can leak onto clothes and sheets in an instant without the right kind of protection.
TENA products are shaped for a close, comfortable and secure fit and engineered with high-speed surface inlets for rapid absorption to avoid the risk of leakage.
Odour neutralisers for freshness you can trust
You may find your loved one becomes worried about tell-tale smells and therefore avoids social contact with friends and relatives.
TENA products are designed to neutralise the bacteria and ammonia that cause unwanted smells, so your loved one can enjoy visits with friends and family with confidence.
Ultra dryness also makes for greater physical comfort
As well as lowering the risk of skin irritation, it’s good to know your loved one is not in physical discomfort from dampness.
That’s why FeelDry™ technology is an important part of our heavier protection products. It whisks urine away from the skin so rapidly that the surface becomes dry again in an instant.
This is comforting to know, especially if you are caring for someone who is unable to say when they need changing or at night when fewer changes are possible.
Fewer skin problems, especially for those seated or lying down for long periods
Skin irritation is always a risk with incontinence and particularly for people who are seated or lying down for long periods. Our products are designed to lock away any urine so that the surface remains soft and dry against the skin. In particular, the unique design of TENA Flex has been proven to reduce the incidence of skin irritation resulting from lying or sitting in the same position due to long-term illness or disability.
Products designed to lessen back strain when changing
The lifting involved in changing a loved one can be physically demanding work, particularly if they have to be changed lying down. The ergonomic design of TENA Flex has been proven to lessen the strain on the back muscles and make the process of changing easier and more comfortable for you and your loved one.
Products to help with skin comfort and hygiene
Washing and hygiene are obviously an important part of incontinence care, which is why TENA have developed a range of washes, wipes and moisturisers especially suited to more sensitive skin areas and to make bed-washing easier and more comfortable for you and your loved one.
Selecting the right product for your loved one will depend on both the physical and mental condition. Use our Product Finder to help you assess which protection is best suited to their situation.
