Today, we can produce ever smaller incontinence products which, because of their reduced size, have less environmental impact, and yet still absorb increasing amounts of liquid and feel dry to the user.
It is therefore evident that our main focus in the future will be on using each type of pad for the specific purpose intended. Correct usage of the products leads to reduced environmental impact. For instance, by reducing the number of pads or by changing pad size, a considerable reduction in the environmental impact can be achieved, as well as cost savings. At Abena we value all scarce resources, financial as well as natural. That is why there is an Abena product for every purpose. Bulk buying a standard size for all users in an institution is a false economy, which will never produce savings – neither for the environment nor for the budget.
To ensure correct use of our products, Abena has a wide range of support tools, with Abena trained nurse advisors available in most markets. In addition, our products have been designed with a clear identification system for nursing staff, enhanced by user-friendly measures such as wetness indicators and paper tapes.
