Attends Healthcare Products manufactures and markets many of the most trusted and well-known disposable adult incontinence products. They are used in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and the growing home-care market. Attends offers a broad range of products to manage every type and degree of adult incontinence.
Healthy skin and odour control
Many Attends’ products feature a unique combination of pH-reducing fibers and super absorbent polymer. This powerful combination channels and locks fluids into the product core while helping prevent odour and found in a variety of Attends Briefs, Shaped Pads, and Belted Undergarments. These distinctive technologies reduce the pH of urine, creating a healthy skin environment for patients.
pH Problem: While moisture is a root cause of skin irritation, it is often exacerbated by the presence of bacteria, fungi and enzymes. Healthy skin typically has a pH ranging from 4.2 to 5.6. At this range, skin has the ability to inhibit the growth of these pathogens.
Urine typically has a pH range of 5.0 to 8.0 with variations generally due to diet, illness, or medications. Over time, the pH of urine on or near skin can raise its pH. The higher the skin’s pH, the more likely the growth of pathogens.
Attend’s Solution: Our unique cellulose fibres reduce the pH of urine to that of healthy skin - retarding bacterial growth and enzyme activity, while reducing the transmission of harmful bacteria from the outer layer of skin to the inner layers where infections can occur.
Moisture Problem: Skin redness, rashes and sores are often caused by the moisture of urine next to a patient’s skin. Excess moisture on the skin surface can also lead to maceration (pruning) which breaks down its natural barriers. This can lead to the development of perineal dermatitis or pressure ulcers.
Attend’s Solution: In addition to reducing pH, our unique cellulose fibres rapidly channel urine away from the skin and into the super absorbent polymer core. Attends’ exceptional core design provides increased resiliency and continues to function even after multiple voids.
Odor Problem: Odor often leads to embarrassment for the incontinent patient, caregiver and facility. Increased pH levels in urine may result in the bacterial growth and build up of ammonia that causes offensive odors.
Attend’s Solution: By reducing the pH of urine, Attends products with pH-reducing fibres hinder the production of the bacteria and ammonia that lead to odour.
