Title (EN) AN ERGONOMICALLY PACKAGED ABSORBENT ARTICLE
(FR) ARTICLE ABSORBANT EMBALLE DE FACON ERGONOMIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to packaged absorbent articles, which are disposable absorbent hygiene articles especially as incontinence care articles like baby-, adolescent- or adult- diapers or training pants, diapering inserts. Such articles are conventionally packaged in bulk quantities such as a household quantity (for example a weekly of fortnightly average consumption quantity of articles) or in institutional quantities of several time the household quantity. The present invention is based on the recognition that there is a need for individually packaged or very small quantity packaged articles. The improvement provided by the present invention is based on the recognition that the article configuration of bulk packaged articles is unsuitable for individually packaged or very small quantity packaged articles. It has been found that basic article performance, article usage, package material consumption, manufacturing efficiency and energy consumption, marketability of the article, economic aspects of providing articles to end-users, individually or in combinations of these aspects can be improved when providing the articles in accordance with the present invention for substantially individually packaged articles.
(FR) L'invention concerne des articles absorbants emballés, lesquels sont des articles d'hygiène absorbants jetables, plus spécifiquement des articles de soin de l'incontinence tels que des couches pour bébés, adolescents ou adultes ou des culottes de propreté, des pièces de couches. De tels articles sont habituellement emballés dans des quantités telles que des quantités de ménage (par exemple une quantité d'articles de consommation moyenne hebdomadaire ou bihebdomadaire) ou dans des quantités institutionnelles de plusieurs fois la quantité de ménage. Cette invention se base sur la reconnaissance qu'il y a un besoin d'articles emballés individuellement ou emballés en très petites quantités. L'amélioration que permet cette invention se base sur la reconnaissance que la configuration d'articles emballés en masse n'est pas adaptée à des articles emballés individuellement ou en très petites quantités. Il a été prouvé que, lorsque les articles de cette invention sont fournis en tant qu'articles emballés individuellement les aspects de performance de base de l'article, d'utilisation de l'article, de consommation de matériau d'emballage, d'efficacité de fabrication et de consommation d'énergie, de qualité marchande de l'article, d'aspects ergonomiques de délivrer ces articles à l'utilisateur final, individuellement ou en combinaison, peuvent être améliorés.
