CareZips Incontinence Trousers

CareZips Incontinence Dignity Trousers

CareZips are patented 'everyday wear' quality trousers that improve dignity, confidence and comfort of incontinent people.

Designed with dignity of people suffering with incontinence in mind, the CareZips Incontinence Dignity Trousers are compatible with all types of disposable and washable incontinence wear – from the lightest urine leakage protection pads and absorbent briefs to the heavy faecal incontinence diapers - as well as catheters, pouches and collection bags.

CareZips Incontinence Dignity Trousers received one of the Top Innovator Awards 2017 from Apparel Magazine. The Top Innovator Award recognises apparel designers, retailers, brands and manufacturers that have demonstrated unique innovation incorporated into their ​apparel product.

CareZips Incontinence Trousers feature 3 strategically positioned zips, 2 of which run from the waist to the knees on both sides of the wearer’s body and the 3rd zip from inside of one knee all the way up and down to the inside of the other knee. The 3-zip system creates easy access to the abdomen and crotch during changes of soiled briefs and diapers, catheters, collection bags and pouches. There is no need to undress the wearer or pull the trousers down. To preserve integrity of the skin and help to prevent pressure related skin breakdowns (i.e. irritations, ulcers and sores) that commonly develop during prolonged immobility in bed, wheelchair or armchair, the long zips on the sides of the CareZips trousers are ingeniously positioned forward and away from the vulnerable, thin and sensitive skin over prominent hip bones.            

Using CareZips ensures all round more pleasant experience for all. There is less exposure and more dignity for the incontinent persons. There are significant time savings and fewer back aches and strains for the carers – even when looking after people with little mobility, bedridden and on wheelchairs. Incontinence briefs and diapers changes are faster and easier for the carers and less traumatic for the incontinence sufferers. Collection bags, pouches and catheters are dealt with easier and without difficulties caused by outer clothing.

CareZips Incontinence Dignity Trousers are suitable for everyday wear – they are elegant, comfortable and practical. Carefully positioned zips ensure that no pressure is exerted on the vulnerable skin during prolonged sitting or resting in bed, thus reducing the risks of pressure related skin irritations and breakdowns, erosions, ulcers or bed sores, making the CareZips an ideal garment for incontinent people, regardless of their mobility status.     

CareZips User Testimonial: "I am very pleased with these pants . They look and feel like casual track pants. Very light, comfortable and convenient. The best feature for me is the crotch zip that makes catheter care way easier. I used them last week to travel and really like this feature. The zips are well placed and discreet, especially the crotch one. Don't feel like adaptive clothing!  Francis, May 22, 2017”.

CareZips Incontinence Dignity Trousers background

CareZips is a patented incontinence dignity garment designed by a loving daughter to preserve the dignity and comfort of her frail elderly mother in a nursing home and suffering with Alzheimer’s Disease and incontinence.

Molly Dye saw the difficulties experienced by the carers during difficult and lengthy diaper changes – the bending and the lifting and the strain put on their bodies. She also saw the suffering of her mother – namely her anguish and loss of dignity as well as discomfort caused by being moved or rolled from side to side. Molly set out to design incontinence trousers that would provide both coverage and accessibility, thus making diaper changes easier and faster for the carers and more dignified and comfortable for the sufferers. CareZips Incontinence Dignity Trousers provide such all-round solution.    

Fitted with unique 3-zip fastening system, the CareZips Incontinence Trousers feature 3 strategically positioned zips that open the trousers from the waist to the knees and between the legs for quick and easy access to the abdomen and crotch. There is no need to undress or pull the trousers down.
