Non-ambulatory and Plane Bathrooms


Recommended Posts

There is a lot of information on the Internet about wearing adult diapers on airplanes, including international flights.    The bottom line is that a really good diaper will last on an international flight (the Albena M4 is mentioned as being a good heavy duty diaper).    Make sure you have plenty of supplies for your trip because it may be difficult to find what you need at your destination country.  Or research ahead of time the locations of pharmacies near your hotel if you need to make purchases abroad.


Here are a couple of sites where you can read other people's experiences:




And this guy has some great general tips and stories about his trips around the world:

Depends where flying from-to (how long the flight is)  - travel companion can last 7-8hrs using adult diapers and cutting back on beverages also going right before boarding.  Would consider practicing how long the person can last before actually doing it on flights.  Also we try and break up the flight for bathrooms - might cost a little more instead of direct flight but better to be more comfortable and less chance of issues. Some planes do have aisle chair to get the person to the bathroom on really long flights - would have to check with airlines.

I am non ambulatory and have flown to Europe a couple of times.  I have used Poise pads and when I knew that wouldn't be enough the flight attendants helped me with the onboard aisle chair.  I don't know of a out all carriers, but American Airlines has collapsible aisle chairs on the Europe to US or vice versa flughts.
