Well...for people like me that are bowel+bladder IC, have no skin feeling (around my diaper area), and are on perscription enzyme pills to coverthe smell of poop - it doesn't seem so stupid.I clicked this thread because the title seemed really stupid.
The thread matches the title.
No one would use it, there isn't a need for it. As Pojo said, smell is a big indicator.
How about considering someone in a wheelchair? They can't exactly reach back there and feel their own arse easily.How about the huge bulge in the back. Running a hand over your diaper would accomplish the task. And the ozzy, mushy feeling.
Why couldn't they make an indicator that runs from back to front?Well Nova... you make a good point. Without some sort of feeling there probably isn't much of a way to tell if you've defecated or not. I'm pretty sure that typical "wetness indicators" work with fecal matter b/c there is typically some form of moisture present. However I imagine it is difficult to check the wetness indicator on the rear of one's own diaper. I shall ponder this and return with a suggestion.
I do it all the time, this buttocks of mine is awesome! It even has a tattoo on it.^^ Or it looks kinda weird if you're feeling around your ass in public. *smirk*
because usually its from a chemical reaction. at least it is with the wetness indicators, as the color changes from the urine mixing with whatever it is that changes the color. and most likely the wetness will absorb before going from one side of the indicator to the other.Why couldn't they make an indicator that runs from back to front?
