Disposable incontinence products are used in management of urinary incontinence. Urinary Incontinence means losing control of bladder, due to which there is an involuntary leakage of urine. In this condition, control over the urinary sphincter is weakened or completely lost and due to this, a person urinates even when they don’t want to. This is a very common and often embarrassing problem for people. At the time of urination, muscles around urethra relax and let urine pass out of the body, however, in urinary incontinence, muscles around urethra don’t work in the way they should, resulting in leak-out of urine. There are various type of incontinences such as stress (bladder is under pressure), urge (intense urge to pass urine), and overflow (chronic urinary retention). The severity of urinary incontinence varies as per health conditions such as urinary tract infection (UTI), constipation, and age group, as urinary incontinence is found more in geriatric population.
