Adult briefs, or adult diapers with tabs, are designed for maximum wearable incontinence protection. They are with highly-absorbent cores and a variety of sizes to ensure a secure fit. Most diapers for adults are made with dry technology, an important part of maintaining skin integrity. By absorbing moisture quickly and locking the fluids inside the core, the skin is kept dry and safe from harm.

Adult briefs, or adult diapers
Get adult diapers if you’re dealing with moderate to heavy incontinence, especially if the patient is bed-bound or in a manual wheelchair. Severe fecal incontinence is also best managed with adult diapers. With their large area of coverage and highly absorbent cores, adult diapers provide the highest level of incontinence protection available. Similar to adult pull ups, adult briefs have tabs for easier removal when the user is bed-ridden or dependent on a caregiver, and are therefore recommended for less active individuals.

If you’re looking for women’s or men’s diapers, keep in mind that incontinence diapers are not gender specific. Since quality absorbent diapers are designed to be absorbent enough and fit well on both men and women.

AvaCare Medical carries a full selection of unisex diapers for men and women that allows anyone with incontinence to retain their dignity and stay comfortable.

2. Absorbency: While all adult briefs are designed to absorb high amounts of liquid, not all diapers are created equal, and the absorbency level will vary from one product to another. There are four levels of absorbency, ranging from light to overnight:
