It’s hard to manage any medical condition without getting some type of support. Because incontinence is still viewed as an embarrassing condition, that might keep you from reaching out to others. Try to remember that people in a specific support group all share the same challenges you do—that should diminish your embarrassment. And the education, inspiration and encouragement you can get from support group members can help you more than you realize. Just being able to talk openly about what you’re facing can free you of some of the stress that’s been building up (and that can, in some situations, worsen your incontinence).
Finding good prices on adult incontinence supplies can be challenging. Luckily having scoured the internet I am happy to report I have found two websites which offer the best value on these type of supplies.
1. Amazon.com – Amazon offers incredibly competative prices on nearly everything. With the addition of the Amazon marketplace, vendors actually try to compete for your business through the Amazon platform by reducing their prices. If you are lucky enough to be an Amazon Prime member, and find the product you want you even get free 2-day shipping on your package.
2. Parentgiving.com – Parentgiving.com specializing in helping you find the exact adult incontinence product to fit your need. A trained staff coupled with a huge inventory and easy order system make this the number two site in my book for incontinence.
Medical supplies sometimes cross over into the field of medical equipment, and frequently medical equipment needs a variety of medical supplies to function properly. In this post we are going to take a brief look at the different types of medical equipment.
Diagnostic: This equipment is used for making diagnoses of specific problems and includes devices such as MRIs and ultrasounds. A variety of medical supplies are associated with this type of equipment, like petroleum jelly and electrode pads.
Monitoring: Used for continually monitoring different signals from the body or a machine, this category includes things like heart and blood pressure monitors. Some devices, such as those for monitoring blood pressure, are classified as supplies themselves, while other pieces of equipment are self-contained, requiring no supplies at all.
Laboratory: Laboratories use an entire classification of equipment that is used on the back end to perform research or make detailed analysis. Typically the supplies required are laboratory specific and not classified under medical supplies.
Therapeutic: Devices and equipment that help in rehabilitation and therapy (pain relief, range of movement, mobility, etc.).
Life Support: These devices are used to for keeping biological systems alive. Far too dark a subject to consider medical supplies for.
Too many times in the course of product creation for the medical field, design takes takes a back seat to simplicity/functionality. Labroatory and hospital equipment may not need to look fancy to be used beyond their functional tasks, but what about items which seniors and patients interact with everyday? When the world around us is constantly pushing the boundaries of design in fashion, architecture, automobiles and other areas, why does the medical field lag behind? Pehaps this was the reason the creative team Lanzavecchia and Wai decided to tackle the unassulted area of medical supplies with the perspective of design weighing in equally…
Consider incontinence pads, among the most widely used incontinence products
Incontinence pads should be used in conjunction with other incontinence products for added protection of accidental leakage.
Transport wheelchair may be a caregiver’s best friend. Designed and manufactured to be portable, a transport wheelchair is lighter than a traditional wheelchair, typically weighing under 30 pounds—those made with lightweight aluminum frames can weigh under 20 pounds. What’s more, it easily folds, allowing you to quickly place it in your car trunk and take it out for use by your loved one when you reach your destination.
Stair lifts aren’t the major home renovation you might think, and their value is priceless.
You might think of elder mobility issues as problems walking, but they can start sooner and in more subtle ways. Whether from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, knee pain can making climbing stairs difficult even as walking itself is still easily accomplished. To limit pain as well as reduce the chance of falls, avoiding stairs often becomes necessary. To continue to age in place when the bedroom is upstairs, stairs lifts are a terrific innovation.
