Hayward, California (EastBayDaily) — Today, more than half of all homebound older people have some form of incontinence, and this problem will only become more profound as the graying of America continues. Hayward Medical Market, a Bay Area company for purchasing and renting medical equipment, is helping to address this problem now by offering a variety of incontinence products that allow the elderly to move more freely without fear or embarrassment.
"We are addressing this problem by offering the largest selection of incontinence products in the Bay Area," Dick Rogers, president of Hayward Medical Market, said.
Hayward Medical Market and its sister stores in Concord and San Mateo have just introduced a new line of disposable adult briefs called FitRight, which are on sale at very low prices throughout January. These incontinence products are made by Medline Industries Inc.'s new state-of the-art manufacturing facility in Lithia Springs, Ga.
"FitRight offers our customers better cost and better quality with innovative product features," Rogers said.
These features include a fitright design that promotes a discreet, comfortable and garment-like fit; a 4-D core with odor protection, which wicks fluid away quickly to promote dryness and help maintain skin integrity; soft anti-leak guards that reduce leaks and improve containment; skin-safe closures for secure, safe and repeated closings; and an ultra-soft, cloth-like backsheet that provides a discreet, garment-like and natural feel.
Hayward Medical Market carries FitRight Extra adult briefs, the most economical choice for people needing moderate absorbency. For those needing heavy absorbency, the medical equipment stores have FitRight Ultra briefs, which are excellent for overnight and extended wear.
In addition to FitRight, the stores all carry Molicare Super adult briefs and Restore premium adult briefs that are popular for the heaviest users.
Disposable adult "liners" for bladder control are also available. Brands such as Capri, Capri Plus, Double-Up, Comfort-Aire and FitRight Active Male Guards offer different sizes and absorbencies. Underpads are another popular line of bladder control products.
"Our stores have the largest assortment of underpads to suit everyone's needs," Rogers said.
