Disposable pull-ups versus disposable nappies for children with a disability.
Most children are expected to be dry by the age of three years (Lukeman, 1997). However, children with physical and/or learning disabilities may have difficulty achieving continence and will have an ongoing need for absorbent products. Historically these were disposable nappies. In recent years, the disposable pull-up style pad (Fig 1) has proved popular as an alternative design.
