Incontinence Products to Try Before You Buy

There are over 200 million people worldwide that suffer from incontinence, and it seems like there are just as many products available to manage it. It is really confusing to determine which product, brand, style, size or absorbency to purchase.

Not only are there several options for products, such as boxers, pull-on, adjustable underwear, briefs (adult diapers), booster pads, inserts, undergarments, pads, and guards, but several brands within each product type, and several absorbency options, sizes, and choices within each brand. Add to that additional incontinence products such as wipes, skin care, gloves, bed pads, and more to help make incontinence easier to manage. It is no wonder it can be confusing and overwhelming to find the right incontinence products.

When selecting incontinence products, fit should be at the top of the priority list. The right fit is going to help with skin protection, leakage protection, and comfort. Fit is a very personal issue, dependant on body size, shape, and even activity. No two people are built exactly the same, and thus to find the perfect fit, it is best to start with products designed specifically for your body type, and then try a few on for size from there. For example, Poise Hourglass pads are designed for women who are carrying a few extra pounds. They are shaped like and hourglass to prevent bunching and roping, providing a more comfortable fit, and better protection.

Absorbency is another important consideration. Unfortunately, there is no industry standard for identifying how absorbent a product is. One brand may indicate their most absorbent product with the term “maximum” while another uses “super”, when in fact they both offer the same protection. Thus, speaking with a product specialist can be very useful for sorting through the differences, and finding the right product for your needs.

Since this is their only business, they know incontinence products inside and out, and want to help you.

The best way to insure you get the right incontinence products for your needs is to try before you buy. According to Kimberly-Clarks consumer research the average consumer wastes over $130 in trial and error mode the first time they buy incontinence products. Once a package is opened, it can’t be returned, making mistakes costly. In order to avoid making this costly mistake, try samples before buying cases. Samples can be purchased in sets of 4 for just $3.49. Call 800-985-1353 M-F 9-4 CST to order. You can choose from more than 100 samples.
