Luckily, today there are incontinence products for men and women offering special features designed to reduce leaks and odors as well as contain urine for long periods of time, including overnight.

Benefits of Microsorb Lining
Quality incontinence supplies should offer enough absorbency as well as specialized technology to contain odors. NorthShore Care Supply offers adult products containing super-absorbent polymers to minimize odors and also wick away wetness, which is known as Microsorb lining.
The MicroSorb lining is located in the absorbent areas of a particular diaper or underwear. Once liquid touches the surface of the lining, the polymers lock away wetness and odors.
The backing of certain tab-style briefs also helps with odor containment. The smooth plastic-backed exterior contains odors from urine and bowel incontinence. It's helpful for men and women to consider these two important features when searching for incontinence products and supplies.
