As the scale of the industry continues to grow, more and more entrants and the uneven quality of products have brought severe challenges to incontinence users and society. in order to reduce the risk of incontinence elderly people suffering from incontinence dermatitis and pressure ulcers, the government requires nursing homes to "change every three hours" for users with moderate and severe incontinence and changing diapers seven or eight times a day has been "normalized".


Side leakage, stuffy heat, moisture is difficult to discharge 


Traditional diapers do not guarantee the quality of rest 

In the hongchuan nursing home in shanghai, nurse aunt li is replacing new adult diapers for the incontinent elderly, "uncle is not in good health, he can't turn over, we help grandpa turn over once every two hours, about seven or eight times a day to change diapers, it does toss the old man."


The reporter learned that the adult diapers used by the elderly are not provided by the nursing home but are purchased by the families of the elderly, and the person who buys them is often not the user himself. aunt li told reporters, "the family of the elderly does not have much cognition about the incontinence of the elderly suffering from incontinence dermatitis and even pressure ulcers, the diapers purchased for the elderly are very cheap, and there are often problems of small absorption, poor breathability, and side leakage and defacing of the sheets, so we need to frequently replace diapers for the elderly." 


The reporter visited a number of nursing homes and learned that under the influence of traditional culture, most of the elderly in china currently regard incontinence as a private topic that is ashamed to talk about, and rarely talk to their wives or children, and some elderly people are unwilling to increase the economic burden on their children even if they know that the quality of the product is not good, so the elderly often bear a great psychological burden. when children choose to buy products, they are accustomed to understanding the basic functions of the product through the detail page of the product and do not understand the real situation after the use of the parents, and the products bought back are often difficult to meet the real needs of the elderly: the size of the product does not meet the height and weight of the elderly, to the elderly with severe incontinence, the purchase of pull-up pants with small absorption, the greed for a moment of cheapness, the purchase of inferior diapers and other phenomena emerge in an endless stream.


How to choose an adult diaper that meets the actual needs of the elderly, this matter seems simple, but in fact, there is still a long way to go. 


The product is disposable and consumes more than 5 billion pieces per year 

Resource consumption is high and the environment is not friendly 


Statistics from the household paper professional committee of the china paper association show that the market size of adult incontinence products increased to 10.47 billion yuan in 2020, an increase of 11.86% year-on-year, and if calculated according to the average price of 2 yuan per piece, the annual domestic consumption of more than 5 billion pieces of adult diapers. 


The reporter learned that the current treatment of adult diapers is mainly used as garbage incineration and landfill. because incontinence products contain super-absorbent resin, non-woven fabrics, cellulose, and other chemical components, the natural degradation rate is slow, no matter which treatment method, up to 5 billion pieces of incontinence products, will bring huge environmental pressure, to the atmosphere, soil, and water caused secondary pollution.


In this regard, many domestic pension institutions called for a high-quality adult diaper, which can not only make the elderly wear comfortable and effectively prevent red skin; but also improve the efficiency of resource utilization and give full play to the synergy of reducing resource consumption and reducing carbon emissions.


How to choose the right adult diaper specifications


ADULT DIAPERS ARE GENERALLY DIVIDED INTO LARGE (L) OR MEDIUM (M) ACCORDING TO THE SIZE OF THE USER'S WAIST OR HIP CIRCUMFERENCE THAT CAN BE APPLIED, AND SOME BRANDS ALSO HAVE SMALL (S) AND LARGE (XL). THE FOLLOWING FIGURE IS THE NATIONAL STANDARD FOR THE SIZE OF ADULT DIAPERS, AND THE ADULT DIAPER PACKAGING PRODUCED BY REGULAR MANUFACTURERS WILL BE MARKED WITH SPECIFICATIONS AND SIZES.

at present, many low-priced adult diapers on the market are in serious chaos and cannot meet the requirements of the national standard. because some manufacturers set specifications according to waist circumference, some manufacturers set specifications according to hip circumference. there is a large gap between the waist circumference data of the human body and the data of the hip circumference, and when choosing the product of adult diapers, it is necessary to see whether the applicable size range on the packaging of the product refers to the waist circumference or the hip circumference.
