Disposable Article For Dealing With Feces

September 17, 2002

A disposable article for dealing with feces has been patented. The article has a longitudinal axis and a transverse axis that is orthogonal to the longitudinal axis. The article comprises a front and rear region that adjoins the front region in a direction defined by the longitudinal axis. A feces-receiving section is formed symmetrically on the longitudinal axis and is formed with one opening with an area of 20-5000 mm2. A three-dimensional feces holding layer underlies the top layer and is formed with a hollow underneath the opening of the top layer. The holding layer also has an opening area corresponding to the top layer opening. The article features a liquid-absorbent layer containing a liquid-absorbent material underneath the holding layer. A liquid-impervious back layer covers the lower surface of the absorbent layer. The article’s rear region is formed to have a uniform dimension in a direction defined by the transverse axis, while the front region is formed to be tapered toward a front edge of the laminate. The top layer is provided on an upper surface. A leakage barrier extends along transversely opposite side edges of the top layer and across the front and rear regions. The leakage barrier is biased to rise on the top layer and is elastically deformable in the opposed direction.
