The Pad Secure is a unique reusable device which holds a bedpad in place, keeping it from shifting or wadding up in the user's bed.  It has even been shown to have better results than pads with tuckable wings, leaving the pad taut and smooth in the morning.  Designed for the active sleeper, it can be a handy addition to any person's incontinence needs.  And the streamline design of the product doesn't change accessibility into or out of the bed.
 
The durable adjustable straps loop under mattresses up to 12" thick and the sturdy plastic clips hold the pad in place.  Tested for its grip strength, the Pad Secure withstood over 40 lbs of force on a typical bedpad, without ripping it.
 
The Pad Secure is designed for a twin bed but can be used on a smaller bed with no modifications, and extension straps are available for just a few dollars more.
 
Underpad not included.

Pad Secure? Yes, but…
The Pad Secure definitely works. But how does it work in the real world? Although it holds on to the underpad no matter what, it does impact the quality of life of the person in the bed. No one lies still, on his back, in the bed around the clock unless he is in a television drama. If he cannot turn, he must be turned by his care partners at least every two hours. That turning will pull the entire pad/holder combo to one side or the other. So will independent getting out of bed or transferring to a wheelchair/commode/chair. Since exiting and entering the bed are usually done on the same side, that side of the pad/holder combo will be pulled each time. Bare skin is in danger of painful pinches or worse; thin clothing won't keep moving over this hard device from being painful. That's how I came to the realization that it might work best if the holders themselves laid along the sides of the mattress rather than on the top of it. And there is a second reason to recommend for version 2.0 of this device. The holding device is hard and stiff, with no particular padding on its ends. And in most cases, as seen in the illustration, it lies under the user's arms! Only thick padding – a folded blanket or heavy bath towels – will adequately pad but won't keep the ends from protruding, potentially damaging the often fragile skin of the user. All of that makes an already narrow twin/hospital bed feel and function as a confining space where air can flow less around the body, making for a claustrophobic sauna effect. We are seeking pads as wide as possible, so that the holders, at least on the active side of the bed, can live happily on the sides of the mattress. Another tactic is to secure the straps to the bed itself. Otherwise, the underpad/holder combo simply makes a circle around the bed, which the care partner will always be trying to stop. Finally, Pad Secure is completely inflexible along its length. Since this device usually often placed on a hospital-type bed, trying to change the bed position to sitting will cause the bar to press deeply into the mattress and eventually to find relief by rotating (twisting) until one end of it is off the bed. Of course, the obvious solution would be to place the entire device above or below the place where the bed flexes, but the problem with it is that the underpad will no longer be under, uhh, the location where it is needed. The verdict? As it does what it claims, we will continue to learn to live with it. For now.
