In a rapidly greying Thailand, a demographic shift is taking place, an overall ageing of the population resulting in more older people and less younger people. The number of Thais over 65 is expected to surge from seven to 17 million people over the next three decades. Thailand's rapid economic development, coupled with a successful contraceptive campaign in the 1970s, set the country on the path to ageing -- a demographic transition that has taken some other developed countries up to 100 years. The older population is growing faster than the growth of the total population. The rapid increase in the proportion of the older population implies a sharp increase in the size of the elderly population
With increasing life expectancy of the elderly due to better health care and nutrition, the elderly are enjoying the golden stage of their lives more and more. Many are still active in their daily lives and have more time to exercise and take care of their health. Some who have reach retirement age are choosing to go travel abroad and explore new horizons. A few are actively participating in social media, such as Line and Facebook.
However, with advanced age comes the problem of deteriorating bodily functions, such as aching joints and for some, incontinence, or the inability to control their body excretion. Even though these problems are considered minor and normal for both men and women of advanced age, they are still considered bothersome when engaging in functions in society. For example, some elderly might experience some urine leakage when coughing or laughing.
Luckily, there is a way to cope with this hindrance and it comes in the form of adult pant. The elderly who wear adult pant will feel more secure when they are outside of their homes or travelling long distance where restrooms are hard to find. Kami Shoji, a leading adult pant manufacturer from Japan, has been supplying Thai elderly with premium quality adult pant for many years. Secure Ichiban adult pant provide assurance for Thai seniors and help improve the quality of their social lives. Recently, a new version of Secure Ichiban adult pant with better absorbent quality was launched in Thailand to great consumer reception.
As Thailand heads toward the future, the elderly will increasingly play a big part in society. With better-equipped health care and facilities, we can rest assured that our elderly will have a high quality of life.
