Water resistant mattress for incontinence

Water resistant mattress for incontinence

Living with a health condition can affect many areas of your life, both in and outside of the home. If you or a family member is dealing with ill health, we understand how difficult it can be. We also know that for many people their health condition doesn’t rest when they do. A common example of this, for many adults as well as children, is suffering from bedwetting.

Protecting your mattress from urine

Not only is bedwetting a disturbance for many people during the night, it can also be embarrassing for them and inconvenient to deal with. As well as having to wash sheets daily, urine on a mattress can cause lasting odours, stains and rotting, ultimately rendering your mattress unfit for purpose.

We explain how you can protect your mattress from urine caused by incontinence and bedwetting.

Can I get a waterproof mattress?

You can purchase a water resistant mattress, but there isn’t a fully waterproof mattress, or mattress protector. However, a water resistant mattress can make a huge difference to your life either as an incontinent person or as a carer. 

Whilst a mattress protector can offer some help when it comes to managing incontinence at night, it cannot actually protect your mattress from urine. We would certainly recommend a mattress protector is used as well though, to help manage bedwetting as you’ll definitely find benefit in using one alongside a water resistant mattress.

How can I protect my mattress from incontinence?

Our Rapyal Sleep Water Resistant Mattress is extremely hard wearing as well as breathable. This ensures it’s comfortable, as well as being resistant to water when managing conditions that cause incontinence and bedwetting. Conforming to UK and EU regulations, the mattress has a 12.5g open coil spring unit and is of medium firmness. This means it suits a variety of sleepers, and because it’s non-vinyl it is more comfortable and natural-feeling than a typical water resistant mattress.
