TENA ProSkin Flex for skin health and more efficient care

The TENA ProSkin range is specifically designed to make a positive difference to the skin health of those living with incontinence. As part of this, TENA ProSkin Flex offers triple protection for dryness, softness and leakage security – all helping to maintain healthy skin. 

According to our research, 90% of care staff who try the product agree it helps keep residents’ skin dry(1). An ergonomic design featuring an adjustable belt aids efficiency and provides better support for carers in the physical demands of their job. Research suggests TENA ProSkin Flex reduces caregiver lower back strain during product changing compared with all-in-one and two-piece products as it allows for fast and easy changes in a standing and lying position(2).

Improving quality of care with TENA ProSkin

TENA is always looking to find new ways to help you improve care. We developed TENA ProSkin out of the understanding that maintaining skin health is an essential part of incontinence care. Our absorbent products are designed to keep the skin dry and let it breathe. This helps maintain a natural skin balance and contributes to the wellbeing of wearers.

Keeping moisture away from the skin

The skin of people living with incontinence may come into contact with moisture – one of the factors that affect the skin and can cause discomfort and pain. To offer fast absorption and less likelihood of rewet, TENA ProSkin Flex features FeelDry Advanced™ which helps managing skin wetness by draws liquid away from the surface, keeping the skin dry. An additional barrier guards against leakage. As the product supports the maintenance of natural skin health, the wearer should feel more comfortable.

Maintaining the skin’s natural balance

To support natural skin health and offer greater comfort and dignity, TENA ProSkin Flex is fully breathable. ConfioAir™ is a functionality that lets humidity escape from the product and covers less of the skin around the hips and thighs, helping maintain the skin’s natural balance. Textile-like sides and back sheet are gentle to the touch so feel softer on the skin.

Securing a comfortable fit

TENA ProSkin Flex comes with an adjustable ComfiStretch™ belt, which allows for a body-close fit to increase comfort and provide better security against leakage. For ease of use, the ComfiStretch™ belt has easy-grip hooks which can be can be fastened at the front and back and are fully adjustable for different body types. Its ergonomic and simple-to-use design means less back bending and so reduces physical strain on carers.
