      Underpads are disposable paper incontinence products designed to meet the needs of incontinent adults. Its main characteristic is its absorbency, which depends mainly on the quality of the fluff pulp and the polymer absorbent in it.

Replacement frequency

     Normally, underpads are changed every 4-5 hours. Pads with good absorbency usually do not need to be changed at night. However, depending on the circumstances, if the elderly person urinates a large amount of urine, the absorbency of adult care pads is limited and they may need to be changed every 2 hours. Therefore, when purchasing underpads, make sure to choose a product with a high absorption capacity and good absorbency. This will keep them dry and comfortable even if the amount of urine increases.

Absorption volume and type selection

      The absorbency of underpads is measured in milliliters. Typically, daily pads have an absorption capacity of about 800-1,000 ml, while nighttime high-absorption pads can reach about 2,500 ml. The choice of absorbency is influenced by a number of factors such as the degree of incontinence of the user, the presence of caregiver assistance, and the amount of urine. Therefore, when purchasing, you can choose different models according to your needs, such as Daily Economy, Upgrade or Nighttime High Absorption. Especially in the case of prolonged bed rest, it is more appropriate to choose underpads with higher absorption capacity.

Correct method of use

      With the user lying on his/her side, unfold the pad, fold about 1/3 of it inward, and place the pad at the user's waist level. The surface of the underpad is usually embossed with diamond, dot or honeycomb patterns, which help to effectively disperse urine and prevent buildup.

      The fluffy pulp inside the underpad absorbs liquid quickly, while the polymer inside locks the liquid in place to prevent reverse osmosis.

      Depending on the size of the user, underpads are available in different sizes such as 60cm×60cm, 60cm×90cm, 80cm×90cm, 80cm×180cm.

Disposal of used underpads

     Wrap the dirty and wet part of the care pad and dispose of it properly.

     If there is stool on the care pads, dispose of it by emptying it into the toilet, bagging the pads and disposing of them in the non-recyclable trash. Do not dispose of the pads directly into the toilet.

     As the pace of life accelerates, the demand for underpads continues to expand. From women in labor and the elderly to menstruating women and newborn babies,underpads are widely used in a variety of scenarios. There are various brands of underpads available in the market. As a cost-effective and easy-to-use option, Noda underpads are widely acclaimed by consumers for their extensive use of polymers, which possess strong water-absorbent properties and are effective in avoiding back seepage.
