Tranquility® Incontinence Products is proud to partner with NAFC to help educate those with incontinence about superabsorbent products that help them live their life to the fullest. In our blog “Finding the perfect product for your individual incontinence needs,” we explored the many factors that go into product selection, such as severity level of incontinence, sizing, and desired product styles and materials.
In this article, we dig a little deeper into different groups of products that are available to fit the specific lifestyle of you or someone in your care. People who are managing incontinence come in all shapes and sizes, different ages, with varying degrees of mobility and daily activity – and Tranquility® has each of these groups covered. We also provide some in-depth information on programs and services that, depending on your situation, may cover some or all of the cost of your incontinence products.
At the end of this article, we’ll share information on the best way to determine what products are ideal for your incontinence management needs, by requesting free samples!
Youth Products: Bridging The Smaller-Sizing Gap
Tranquility is one of the few incontinence care manufacturers that specializes in youth-sized products. These items bridge the gap when a child has outgrown toddler diapers and youth pull-ons but doesn’t quite fit into adult-sized products. We offer a half-dozen options in briefs or disposable underwear styles, with sizes ranging from a waist/hip measurement of 15” and weight of 28 pounds, to waist/hip of 36” and weight up to 125 pounds. Additionally, parents and caregivers can add absorbent capacity to a disposable garment – great for sleeping through the night – with our youth-sized booster pads.
Those interested in requesting free samples can visit our dedicated Youth Products webpage.
Bariatric Products: Fit Meets Comfort With Maximum Protection
Tranquility is a pioneer of bariatric incontinence care, as the first manufacturer to offer a plus-sized brief. Over the years, finding new ways of caring for bariatric individuals has become a focus for our business. Tranquility bariatric products provide the ideal combination of maximum leakage protection and comfort, featuring options like the AIR-Plus Bariatric Brief with 100% breathable materials and stretchy side panels that comfortably fit up to a 108” waist. These are ideal for those experiencing heavy to severe loss of bladder control.
We have expanded our bariatric offering with disposable underwear that provides top absorbency and comfort, underpads and booster pads for additional absorbent capacity, plus extra care items like moisture management sheets.
Keep Moving, With Products For A More Active Lifestyle
There is a stigma that adult absorbent products are bulky and uncomfortable and that people around you will be able to tell when you are wearing them. But Tranquility has designed several products with features that support your dignity while offering you the freedom to move around as you please.
Our Tranquility SlimLine® brief-style product offers the ideal combination of protection, security, and discretion, with a slimmer profile that conforms to the body more closely than typical disposable briefs. They also feature:
- Refastenable closures that allow the wearer to perform open-and-close checks
- Soft leg elastics to stop leaks and maintain security around the legs
- A full-fit core that extends over the hips for added front and back security
If you prefer the convenience of disposable garments that you can pull on and off, try Premium DayTime™ Underwear or Essential Underwear – Moderate.
And all Tranquility Products come with Real Life Protection, guaranteeing they will lock in fluid they absorb, even when you’re standing, sitting up, walking or performing other regular, everyday activities. So you can live your life to the fullest.
Get Back In The Pool, With Swimmates®
If you experience bowel incontinence, you may believe that your days of in-the-water activity are over; however, Tranquility offers a specialty product to help you get back into the pool! Swimmates are discreet, unisex, disposable underwear that are worn under a bathing suit. They feature Kufguards® inner leg cuffs and a moisture barrier to help contain bowel incontinence. Their material is designed to minimize swelling and do not break apart when wet. When your aquatic activities are finished, the tear-away side seams provide easy removal and disposal.
Swimmates® are a favorite for parents with little swimmers, as well as those who can once again take part in swim camps, aqua therapy, and other recreational pool activities.
Sleep Easy, With Specialized Nighttime Products
We spend about one-third of our lives asleep. For most people, sleep is a time of relaxation and recharging for the next day. But for many people living with incontinence, bedtime leads to restless thoughts and anxiety over waking up to wet or soiled sheets. If this description fits your situation, Tranquility is committed to helping you get a dry, comfortable, restorative night of sleep, with a pair of products optimized for nighttime protection: ATN™ (All-Through-the-Night) Briefs and Premium OverNight™ Underwear.
Both products feature Tranquility’s premium superabsorbent core, which can hold and lock in up to 34 oz of fluid. That’s over a quart – capacity to contain multiple adult voids, which typically average 8-12 oz each. Fluid stays in the core and will not be squeezed out if you move around in your sleep. Tranquility nighttime products help you focus less on leaks and more on getting a calm and restful night of sleep.
Programs That May Cover Product Costs
Besides level of incontinence severity, lifestyle needs, and other factors, your economic situation can also play a large role in which types of incontinence products you choose. If cost is a major consideration, there may be options available to assist with (or even completely cover) expenses for your medically necessary supplies.
Here is a brief look at some of these programs and services, along with links to learn more.
- Medicaid – This public health insurance program serves over 76 million Americans. Those who qualify due to complex healthcare needs (such as developmental disabilities), low-income families, and low-income older adults may receive coverage at no cost for medically necessary products, including incontinence supplies. Tranquility offers a comprehensive Medicaid guide on incontinence products and a guide focused on youth Medicaid coverage if you wish to learn more.
- VA (Veterans Affairs) Benefits – Incontinence products may be available at no cost to Veterans and current servicemembers through their VA Benefits when prescribed through their primary physician. If you think you may qualify, talk to your doctor. The Tranquility VA Incontinence Guide provides contracted product lists for multiple VA Benefit programs.
- FSA (Flexible Spending Account) – Incontinence products may be covered if you have an FSA, which is a portion of your work pay that is set aside for certain healthcare costs. Learn more here.
- Private pay – If you do not qualify for any of the programs listed above and must pay for products out of your own pocket, diaper banks in your area may be able to help you.
