If you are a caregiver for someone who deals with incontinence, then you may want to consider plastic pants for adults. These pants are typically made out of polyurethane or polyvinyl chloride, which is more commonly referred to as PVC. For those who may be allergic to those materials, there are some manufacturers that design them out of more traditional rubber latex, in addition to making other wheelchair accessories available in this material. The purpose of these pants is to trap liquids (in a different manner than our drink holder) and soiling before they leak from an adult diaper. In the past, oiled wool was used to serve this function. The newer model plastic pants for adults offer more style, comfort and freedom allowing the wearer to go about their business without anyone knowing they are wearing them.
Plastic pants for adults are most often cut into the shape of a boxer style short or brief. By placing elastic around the waistline and again around each thigh area, they can stop the leakage of any liquid or unwanted materials that a diaper may fail to absorb. This will come as a relief to anyone dealing with incontinence as they can rest assured that if any accidents do happen, then they will be safe from embarrassment and the time consuming cleanup that is associated with soiled clothing. Beyond bringing confidence to the wearer, these plastic pants are consistently being manufactured in lighter and less obtrusive forms so that the wearer remains comfortable and at ease.
One of the best functions of plastic pants is to allow for the use of cloth diapers without the fear of spillage. Cloth diapers are most often less absorbent than their counterparts, but are far more environmentally friendly. Since they are reusable, they also serve as an effective cost cutting measure as well, when dealing with medical issues. Any drawbacks from using cloth diapers can be overcome with the use of plastic pants for adults.
