Adult Diapers – TENA Pants, Plus, Slip and Nateen
Many of us are confused over the options available for adult incontinence. What types of adult diapers are there, and what are the differences between brands, and the range of products?
TENA is the most well known established brands of diapers and are widely popular in Europe and Asia. There are other big brands too like Certainty, Nateen, Lille etc. They are sturdy brands and are popular in certain home countries too.
Let us go through the range of adult diapers available:-
ADULT DIAPERS (Open Format)
TENA Value is an open diaper format, for moderate and heavy urine and suitable for faecal incontinence. As an extra health benefit to the user, there are 4 botanical extracts Aloe Vera, Olive Oil, Chamomile and Vitamin E on the diaper. This helps to create a skin soothing layer that is gentler and more comfortable on the skin.
TENA brand is reputable and many users choose TENA Value as it is the most affordable brand among the full range of TENA products.
Unbeatable all-in-one protection with maximum absorption and security against leakage and suitable for faecal incontinence. The Superfit™ fixing tape and generous tape landing zone ensure a secure, comfortable fit around the body and can be continually readjusted without tearing the product. TENA Slip also benefits from FeelDry™ technology for outstanding dryness and a dual core to rapidly absorbs urine and retains it away from the body; the 100% breathable Air-Dry Layer™ backsheet lets the air circulate preventing dampness on the skin and improving user comfort.
Adult Diapers (Pull-Up Pants Style)
TENA – Normal Pull-Up Pants
TENA – Plus Pull-Up Pants
TENA Pants Plus provides a comfortable, flexible, safely hugging fit for adults who are able-bodied. They can change themselves as they are worn like normal underwear and are noiseless. The wearer can participate in normal daily activities with confidence. And these pants can also be removed by tearing the sides which makes for easier, cleaner changing if soiled. FeelDry™ technology is the feature in TENA Pants Plus, which rapidly absorbs even large quantities of urine into the core and away from the skin so that, even when seated or lying down for long periods of time, the wearer will stay dry and comfortable. The risk of skin rashes and infections is significantly reduced.
For those who compare this to TENA Pants Normal, Tena Pants Plus has higher absorbency, and is more thin, more comfortable fit thanks to ConfioFit design.
Adult Diapers (Pads style)
Nateen EASY-8 SOFT / MAXI Insert-Pads
Nateen pads (aka Insert Pads) are recommended for adults with light incontinence issues. It is a pad that can be insert into normal everyday pants that we wear for daily normal activities. It can be insert in pants or shorts during sleep time at night too, to act in case of light leakage.
For those users wearing cloth diapers or Panti (Mesh Pants), the Nateen pads can be insert in the Mesh Pants or cloth diapers to act as a simple layer to absorb light urine or to be thrown away when soiled.
Soft, breathable and convenient to use the EASY-8 MAXI insert pads from Nateen incorporate a super absorbent powder (SAP) designed for fast absorption and dryness, offering a high quality pad with a multi-layer absorption core. Technically advanced, the shaped pads feature a a polyethylene (PE) back sheet with double wetness indicator to show when the pad is ready to change. Easy-8 are ideal for use with other fixation panti products such as Flexi adult pull up’s from Nateen.
Anti-leak cuffs ensure all liquid is absorbed directly into the pad, minimising the risk of side leakage allowing the product to be worn with real confidence, helping to maintain an independent life style.

TENA Underpad is not a diaper, nor any type of wearing-alike wearing materials. It is meant to cover mattresses in order to absorb leakages, reduce odours and maintain dryness. Users can lie on top while changing of diapers, or while resting on bed / sofa etc. The products consist of an absorbent layer on the top and a PE barrier layer at the bottom. Consists of 100% virgin fluff pulp, which provides far greater levels of absorption and retention, than draw-sheets or wadding filled pads.
