Incontinence and its side effects can affect people in so many ways. At the very least there can be embarrassment and often a withdraw from social activities. At worse individuals may have pressure sores, infections, rash, and pressure ulcers. This is caused by urine and feces encountering the skin. Warm, moist skin is a perfect breeding ground for disease. It leads to the skin breaking down and becoming weaker. The CDC reports that more than half of all seniors suffer from incontinence. It is a tough battle for family and caretakers. But it does not have to be that way.
As far back as 2009, Unique Wellness was developing the next generation of incontinence products. It was NASA that inspired Unique Wellness to begin developing their own MAG (Maximum Absorbency Garment) product for commercial use. By 2012, they had developed the Unique Wellness Brief product that would become a standard for the industry. Shortly thereafter Unique developed the Unique Wellness Underwear product. CEO Steve Goelman said, "We wanted to simplify incontinence with a program that saves money and prevents wounds. Our garment concept--based on NASA's design for astronauts--employs a five-layer system that keeps skin dry. This program gives people the freedom of feeling dry and lacking odor, which improves quality of life." The beauty of the Unique Wellness system is a super absorbent polymer that removes moisture away from the skin through Unique’s multi layered InconTek® technology. This technology allows the skin to always be dry. Plus, changes are only necessary once every 8-12 hours versus the industry’s 3-hour change schedule. The Unique Wellness Brief can fully absorb up to 87 ounces (2.6 liters) of liquid.
Affordable Medical Equipment has sold thousands upon thousands of the Unique Wellness product over the years. The reasons are simple:
- Keeps the individual dry and comfortable all day (and night) long.
- They are safe.
- Three per day versus 7-8 with other major brands.
- Odor free.
- Latex free.
- Multi-layer absorbency.
- Multiple sizes to fit anyone.
- Confidence to travel anywhere.
- Environmentally friendly.
- Improved quality of life.
