How to wear incontinence pads?

Posted by at Jul 21 , 2015

Incontinence pads are special pads designed for people suffering from accidental urine leakage. If you leak urine when you sneeze or laugh, then you have a problem known as urinary incontinence.

Most incontinence pads consist of more than 1 layer of protection. The first layer usually acts as collection layer. It collects the urine and passes it on to the next absorbent layer. There the liquid urine is turned into a semi-solid gel like substance with the help of super absorbent powders. Thus dual layer of protection helps in keeping the skin dry and prevents skin rashes. Prolonged contact between skin and urine is harmful. Incontinence pads also prevent odours from urine accumulation. They do so by preventing the formation of ammonia inside the pads.

Kenkotherm DUK Tape is Absolutely Amazing!

Posted by at Jul 13 , 2015

As a non-athlete and in my late 40’s, this tape has saved my ankle. I turned it very badly on our backyards pathway a few months ago. It was just a stupid injury that happens once in a while but it’s been plaguing me. Each time it starts to feel better, I twist it again and it starts bothering me all over again so when I heard this tape might do the trick, I figured “what the heck”.

I looked at the included tips for putting it on that were in the box, and they had a diagram for ankle support. I went to their website and talked to the person that sold it to me for advice on the best way to use it.

I’ve worn it for a few days now and I absolutely can’t say enough about it. My ankle is not bothering me anymore and somehow, the tape is making it easier to stay on my ankle longer.

Something to note, this Kenkotherm Duk Tape seems more effective than the other kineseo tapes of traditional Ace-Bandage that I’ve worn before – it is not as bulky, and it stays put. It also looks good enough that I was able to wear it while wearing shoes. It’s also better than the medical tapes I have tried, it just seems to work better.
