Bladder or bowel control problems affect around 5% of the population and as many as 20% of over 40s. Severity varies from person to person and both men and women of all ages experience it at some point in their lives. At HARTMANN we recognise we need to do more than address the physical symptoms. So, as well as high leakage protection, we offer discretion, support and advice.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for those living with incontinence.

At HARTMANN our priority is to work with users to discover exactly what they need – practically and psychologically - then respond with discrete, effective, holistic solutions. However serious their condition – from active mobile to bedridden – they are assured secure leakage protection, skin irritation prevention, a high wearing comfort and ease of use.

From occasional bladder weakness to very severe incontinence With incontinence products from HARTMANN, nursing staff and patients can be sure that they are using high quality disposable products customised to individual needs.

Our incontinence range comprises:

  • Incontinence pads (anatomic pads for slight, slight-to-moderate, moderate, severe and very severe incontinence),
  • Incontinence Pull Ups (for slight and moderate bladder weakness),
  • All-in-One Incontinence Briefs (for moderate, severe and very severe incontinence),
  • Incontinence Under Pads (cellulose fluff underpads),
  • Skin care products for incontinence-stressed skin

From occasional or light to very severe bladder weakness

Selecting the right absorbent incontinence product depends above all on how much urine is actually excreted as well as on the usual or required changing rhythms. Once the average amount has been established, the HARTMANN Inco System makes it easy to select the most suitable product. HARTMANN absorbent products feature a special colour code corresponding to the four degrees of severity of incontinence and thus to the different amounts of urine excreted per hour. The colour code is used both on all of the packaging, as well as on the backing foil of the product itself.

Yellow – Slight
Green – Slight to moderate
Blue – Moderate
Purple - Severe
