What is Incontinence?
Incontinence is the inability to control either urine or fecal elimination. Essentially this means that to some degree you may loose urine or bowel movements at times that you do not choose to do so.

There are four basic types of Urinary incontinence:

Stress Incontinence: an involuntary loss of small amounts of urine when you cough, laugh, lift or exercise. It can be caused by multiple vaginal births, enlarged prostate, pelvic trauma or loss of pelvic muscle tone.

Urge Incontinence: inability to control urinating once you feel the need to void. Simply, you may feel the need to urinate but cannot wait to get to the bathroom. It can be caused by Alzheimer's, Parkinsonism, enlarged prostate, spinal cord injuries or urinary tract infections.

Reflex Incontinence:
This is frequent loss of urine with no warning. This is due to spinal cord injuries, brain tumors or strokes.

Overflow Incontinence: Leakage of urine when the bladder is full. For example the person experiences dribbling, frequency, urgency and bladder distention. It is most commonly caused by diseases that cause a blockage of the natural passage way of urine.

Bowel incontinence is the inability to contain or "hold" a bowel movement. It can be caused by being constipated often and for long periods, or on the opposite end of the spectrum by severe or long-term diarrhea.

Is Incontinence a normal part of getting older?
No, it is not. It does effect a large percentage of the senior population but the causes should be identified by your doctor. Incontinence is NOT a disease, it is a symptom, but it can be treated once the causes are determined. If you are experiencing any type of incontinence you should see your doctor, there is a good chance you can be helped with this problem.

How often is normal for urinating or having a bowel movement?
Keep in mind that humans come in an infinite variety so there is no one right answer. However there are basic guidelines. Most people urinate four to eight times per twenty four-hour period. Getting up once a night is normal, if you are getting up more than twice per night you should see your doctor. Most people have a bowel movement anywhere between three times per day to three times per week.

What are some things I can do to avoid incontinence?
Always be sure to drink enough liquid. People may think that if they feel as though they need to urinate often they should cut back on liquids. It is just the opposite. You need to keep enough fluid in your system to keep it running smoothly, at least 3-4 pints per day. Do not try to force yourself to go to the bathroom (due to convenience) but do go when you need to. Be sure to get enough fiber in your diet to keep your bowels in good working order.

If I go to the doctor is surgery the only answer?
Although some causes of incontinence are treated very effectively with surgery, it is not the only answer. Some types of incontinence respond well to simple exercise techniques. There are medications that can help some types of incontinence. There are other techniques like "bladder or bowel training" that help you learn new ways of controlling urination or bowel movements. The first step is to find out why you have the problem and then discuss the best treatment options with your doctor.

How do I know which size brief will fit me?
Mega Care Products is the only manufacturer in the industry with six sizes of adult briefs!
Finding your correct size is easy

Measure the hips or waist, whatever is larger.
Measure hipbone to hipbone and over the stomach.

After obtaining the hipbone to hipbone measurement,
double the measurement and add two inches.



Hipbone to hipbone = 22"

22" X 2 = 44" + 2" = 46"

46" measures into a large brief

How do I put on a Mega CareLine® Brief?

The right way to put Mega CareLine™?s brief is crucial to get 100% efficiency

  • Brief Positioning
    Position the brief so that the top tape tabs are lined up with your hipbones.
  • Tug Technique
    Fold the wings of the front panel back to bring the leg cuffs outward. Pull the panel up snug between the legs until the leg elastic is resting in the crease of the groin area. This will prevent leaking and redness in the inner groin area.
  • Tape Tabs
    Always fasten the bottom tape tabs first on an upward angle ? 45 Degress angel. This will form a secure seal around the buttocks. Fasten the top tabs on a straight angle facing each other..
