Urinary incontinence is a phenomenon of great social impact with a profound incidence on the psychological well-being of the people affected. Commonly defined as stress, urge or mixed, urinary incontinence mainly affects women and is more frequent in the elderly. Diapers are the most widely adopted “non-medical” countermeasure to combat the pathology. In selecting the type of absorbent product, different characteristics must be considered depending on the constitution of the subject affected, the type of incontinence and the characteristics of the product. In addition to absorbent power, it is extremely important for these devices to be able to prevent and/or soothe the irritations and consequences of infections that commonly occur with the constant use of diapers.


KEY WORDS: Urinary incontinence; Diaper, adults; Projective techniques
