Bladder weakness protection perfectly engineered for men

TENA has developed purpose-made products to help men with bladder weakness to stay the distance.


Today’s man has a lot going on – life is busy, and his schedule is demanding, so he can’t let a manageable condition like bladder weakness slow him down. That’s why TENA has developed purpose-made products to help men with bladder weakness to stay the distance.

For the man who has moderate bladder weakness, the TENA Men Level 2 protective guard offers great absorption and the assurance of all-day protection, comfort and dryness. 

And don’t think of this protective guard as a ‘pad’ in the sense of sanitary towels or women’s products. This protective guard has a comfortable cup shape that has been designed specifically for the male anatomy, yet it’s so discreet that it’s completely unnoticeable under your clothes.

And for added security, it features an adhesive strip that ensures it stays put. So you can keep doing whatever you need to do, without worrying about leakage.

With TENA Men Level 2, men who lose more than just a few drops are assured of the extra protection they need, however active they are. The protective guard, which is just 8mm thick, can hold up to 450ml of urine.

TENA Men Level 2 features the unique Lock Away Core™ containing micro-absorbents that lock in liquid and keep it away from your body, plus there’s the added reassurance of Odour Control™ for guaranteed feel-good freshness. 

To use the protective guard, all you do is remove the protective backing from the adhesive strip and place the protective guard on the groin with the adhesive strip against your underwear, and the pointy tip facing down and towards you. Then straighten your underwear and adjust till you’re comfortable, though you may need to apply pressure between the underwear and the adhesive strip to secure.

For men who need extra protection, TENA Men offers Protective Underwear Level 4, a pull-up designed to look and feel like your normal underwear. It neutralises potential odour and has a reinforced front zone for long lasting absorbency, maximum confidence and security. Made from a cotton-like material, and suitable for male medium to heavy bladder weakness, the protective underwear is available for men with a hip size of 95cm to 125cm. It’s discreet, with a boy-leg style, a grey stripe pattern and a grey waistband – to truly look and feel like male underwear.

Best of all, the underwear provides maximum protection, featuring a 1450ml total capacity thanks to TENA’s super absorbent microbeads, which retain many times their weight in liquid.

So there’s really nothing to worry about – with TENA products, all that’s left is for you to live your life to the full.
