Absorptive Product Having Removable Absorbers
Patent #: 7,175,613
Inventor(s): Katsuhiko Sugiyama, Rie Kuwabara and Migaku Suzuki
Company: The Procter & Gamble Company
An absorptive product having a front region, a rear region and a crotch region was patented recently. The article forms a waist opening and a pair of leg openings with a backsheet made of a liquid impermeable sheet. Absorbers are located on the interior of the back sheet and comprise a front absorber primarily for absorbing urine and extending from the front region to the crotch region and a rear absorber primarily for holding feces and extending from the crotch region to the rear region. A film partition is located in the crotch region between the front absorber and the rear absorber so that contact between the front absorber and the rear absorber is prevented. At least one of the front absorber and the rear absorber is made to be removable from the absorptive product. The absorptive product has an access port for removing at least one of the front absorber and the rear absorber from the absorptive product while the absorptive product is being worn by a wearer.
