There are many ways to test absorbency in incontinence products and Tranquility products are tested to simulate wearing conditions of the end-user. The Tranquility Test Method exerts pressure on the product after saturation. The amount of saline solution (synthetic urine) that is retained after pressure is applied is the amount (measured by standard measuring cups) that is displayed on packaging, in catalogs and sell sheets as actual fluid capacity for each absorbent product and size.

Absorbent products absorb more fluid under “free-swell” conditions than they retain under pressure. People using incontinence products are sitting, standing, walking and lying down – all of which exert pressure on the product. Concerned caregivers and end-users are acutely aware that retention is a key factor in incontinence management.

Tranquility products’ peach-colored core symbolizes the promise of unsurpassed overall performance in the areas of…
Skin dryness- Moist skin is prone to irritation, breakdown and the formation of pressure sores. Tranquility products instantly absorb moisture and trap large volumes of urine that will not be “forced out” even under pressure. The result is drier skin.
Odor reduction- One of the most distressing, yet prevalent characteristics of incontinence is the telltale ammonia odor of urine. Due to Tranquility’s products quick retention of urine, the bacteria is neutralized and the odor is greatly reduced.
Urine pH neutralization- The pH levels of urine have a caustic effect on skin. Tranquility products quickly capture urine and neutralize the pH to promote a healthy environment for the skin.
Inhibition of bacterial growth- Unabsorbed urine is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and other organisms. This can easily lead to complications, such as urinary tract and skin infections. Tranquility products lock away urine, depriving the bacteria of a place/condition to thrive and create a safer skin environment.
An average person voids approximately 8-12 fluid ounces of urine. Many Tranquility products are engineered to hold 2 or more voids depending on the individual (voiding patterns). Premium performing products build the confidence to pursue normal daily activities, and improve periods of uninterrupted.
High performance products provide the extra care that end-users need and demand.
Eliminating shear, friction, moisture, and heat can provide an ideal, healthy environment for skin. The soft, highly absorbent Tranquility peach core provides exactly that environment: it quickly absorbs fluids (urine and moisture) and wicks it away from the skin – locking it into the core. The surface feels dry and comfortable (not damp and cold). Skin pH is critical and Tranquility products rapidly neutralize urine pH to provide the best environment to preserve skin integrity. Additionally, by capturing and containing fluids, bacteria and skin pH are kept under control, urinary tract infections can be reduced, and compromised skin will have a chance to heal.
There is a sense of happiness and peace of mind that stems from daily activities of wholesome living and caring. Tranquility products provide exceptional capacity and comfort. Needless/wasteful changes are eliminated and wearers can enjoy uninterrupted sleep and normal socialization – important factors of healing and wellness. In most cases, up to 6-8 hours of protection is provided before a change is needed. Caregivers and family members notice that when individuals sleep better, anxiety, irritation and agitation are virtually eliminated. Tranquility products’ superior performance ends embarrassment, withdrawal and social isolation while creating a more inviting atmosphere for family and friends.
