Outer (Pants type diaper)
Pull-up pants type diaper
Suitable for wearers who require excretion assistance or who can use the bathroom by themselves.
Thin and slim type diapers absorb one or two loads of urination, while diapers for extensive usage absorb four to five loads of urination. Applying the urine absorbent pad together with the pants type diaper makes diaper replacement much easier and more economical.
Tape type diaper
Suitable for wearers who spend most of their time lying down or who can assume a sitting position with assistance.
These diapers absorb three to four loads of urination. However, absorbency can be supplemented by inserting a urine absorbent pad. Applying the urine absorbent pad together with the tape type diaper makes diaper replacement much easier and more economical.
