It depends on how you look at it. Some essays on the subject that were published on the internet may appear to have ridiculed the baby boomers and probably are decidedly offensive, but the fact is adult diapers are no laughing matter.
They are an inescapable necessity in the daily life of the aged, sometimes even younger people.
Yes, for the aged they have got to go when they have to go. It is as simple as that when they are at home. But when they are out on business or pleasure, it can be quite difficult when nature calls.
Many seniors suffer from urinary or fecal incontinence – conditions where they are unable to control their bowels or bladders. For them using adult diapers is the only way to deal with this vexing problem.
Luckily, reliable diapers are available today that allow adults to live a fuller and active life in the society.
What are they made of?
These are absorbent pads designed to retain urine and fecal fluids. The absorbency of this garment is created by layers of polymer and fibrous material. To maintain the absorbency effective, the main body of the diaper is created from layers of polypropylene, nylon, and polyester.
Modern adult diapers are stringently tested for quality. Tests involve checking for the correct ratio of polymer to fiber as also the exact absorbency of the diaper.
As societies age rapidly, we need to take care of our senior citizens. Japanese did it the right way – in a fashion show in 2008, male models strutted across the stage to catchy dance tunes displaying trendy designs of the most unlikely clothing, the adult diapers. It was a genuine campaign to keep the elderly healthy and clean.
Need we say it was a runaway success? The sales of incontinence products in 2008 crossed more than $500 million.
Adult diapers can be an absolute necessity in the future if we see space travel as a distinct possibility for more people than we presently believe. It takes a long time to get into a spacesuit, so taking it off for a nature’s call will take “ages,” so healthy adults will be donning adult nappies too.
Not surprisingly, NASA gives it a very respectable name – maximum absorbency garments. In a spaceship super-absorbent fabric is used which can hold up to 400 times its weight.
It wouldn’t be out of place when in the near future adult diapers will cease to be a source of embarrassment. If not the health care providers, fashion shows will surely see to it.
