Seems like a pretty basic but good feature to stop the gel from shifting around .

the triple channel technology is fairly new technology-wise in the diaper industry it takes years for the adult market to catch up to the infant/toddler market​

Well it better hurry up. I would absolutely adore an adult diaper that has the same triple channel technology as Luvs and Pampers. This, when it happens will be the future of abdls.

Wait, luvs and pampers uses these? So that means there’s alternatives to the patented design

Luvs and Pampers are both made by P&G

Oh yea? Didn’t know that. I guess that explains it.

1. Adult diapers are far behind baby diapers technologically. Still no stretchy sides, no rectangular cut instead of the hourglass glass etc.

2. The three channels are patented by P&G. So even Huggies can't have the channels.

I've used Pampers with the 3 channel technology, and I must say, it's really good. It really, really helps with wicking. Could we expect to see it on adult diapers? Probably, but it'll be a long wait.

Imagine that for an adult sized diaper, it'd be more like 5 or more channels... Definitely not opposed to improvements in my diapers if it makes them work even better without detracting from the fit and feel!

Didn't Abena have channels of some sort? Bambino (I think!) also had a funny donut shape in the (front?) Padding for a minute...

I can't vouch for Abena years ago but i wear Abena for the past decade + and has never had channels

Drylock technologies has a similar patent but made some agreement with P&G. They did implement it in all kids products (including the magics pyjama pants bedwetting pullups) and even adult pants (dailees pants) but not in any of the adult diapers yet.

edit: I want to add here that both dailees and magics pyjama pants have unseen absorption rate. I have an OAB and thus far, both products were able to cope with my floods. I will stick with this vendor for now, I just hope one day they do the same thing with their diaper technology.

Where the leading edge of the Adult diaper industry is a far step then from just 20 years ago. That does not mean that near yearly there continues to be small changes to even the standard barriers, which most users never notice until the accumulated change is seen by comparing to an older variant of the same diaper.

Remember that just in increased diaper capacity there has been major steps that continue as the now 8500 ml diapers find their way to the market.

Now regarding speeding-up the transition or you are going to?? Wear the largest new style baby diapers. That's good for appears and short wear events, but 24/7 is a very different world. Major changes in the baby diaper world is every 10 to 15 years that runs across full line of a manufacture. Adult diapers are closer to 20 years.

There's been a few brands who've tried it over the years. Perhaps more modern manufacturing techniques and materials lend themselves better to retaining the contouring (not yet seen the new stuff in action)?

It's classified. ;)

Another thing that wasn't touched on yet is the actual purpose for the channels. They are there to help the diaper stay in shape. Basically the channels don't allow the SAP to congregate in the middle of the diaper creating the big clump and making it sag. The channels actually move the SAP out towards the front and back.

The channels also allow for more SAP to padding ratio this way. The channels direct the SAP and fluids at the same time allowing for more of the SAP in the diaper to absorb fluids without having extra materials to wick the fluids to the SAP.

The fit of current adult diapers on the market pretty much negate the need for any such tech to be utilized. The two tapes on each side allow for a much trimmer fit than how a diaper fits a baby.

The Dailee slips have stretch sides and good tapes, padding could be taller, I got some from Europe, saving the rest for summer.

I don't understand how you can PATENT a "channel".

If Henry Ford PATENTED the "Steering Wheel", no other car companies could exist.
