Incontinence Article in the Form of Pants
Paul Hartmann researchers have received a U.S. patent for an incontinence product in the form of pants designed to receive excrements. The article comprises a front belly section, a rear back section connected to the front section at a side seam and a crotch section permanently attached to an extending in a longitudinal direction between the belly section and back section. The belly section and back section have an edge contour which extends toward a transverse center axis of the crotch section and which differs from a transverse or peripheral hip direction to define the leg openings. This crotch opening comprises a liquid impermeable back sheet material, a top sheet material made of nonwovens and an absorbent body between the two.
