Absorbent Product For Men

June 30, 2009

An absorbent product for men has been granted a patent. It comprises a front section, a rear section and a crotch section between the front and rear sections. An absorption body tapers toward one end from a front section of the product toward the crotch section of the product. It is enclosed in a sheath comprising a liquid-tight layer on a side of the absorption body facing away from the user during use and a liquid-permeable layer on an opposite side of the absorption body. Both layers extend beyond the absorption body and are joined together. The absorption body is arranged to extend, during product use, from the front section of the product in the direction of the crotch section and is adapted to extend with its narrower end section to slightly below the penis of the user. On the liquid-permeable layer, at the narrower end section of the absorption body, a liquid barrier is applied, which is arranged to prevent urine emitted by the user from leaking from the surface of the absorption body toward the crotch region of the user.
