Samples of Incontinence Products

Avoid costly mistakes. Order samples.
According to the Kimberly-Clark research, those buying incontinence products for the first time waste $130 on average in trial and error mode before finding the right products for their needs. Purchasing incontinence products can be overwhelming and confusing. Consumers may find themselves uncertain what to get due to the sheer number of options for product, brand, style, size and absorbency. Once a package is opened, it can’t be returned, which makes mistakes costly.
One of the best ways to avoid costly mistakes is to order samples before investing in cases of absorbent products. We have samples available for $3.49 per item set of 4 pads. We have over 100 samples to choose from. Visit us online or call 800-985-1353 M-F 9-4 CST to order.

Why are samples so necessary? With more than 25 million adult Americans suffering from incontinence, it would seem that it would be easy to find what the right products. However, this is not the case. Not only is there little standardization in the absorbent product world, there are also many types of incontinence as well as many types of absorbent products. 

There are a number of types of incontinence, each requiring their own unique products, from stress incontinence, where leaks occur when stress is put on the bladder such as jumping up and down, laughing, sneezing, etc to incontinence caused by anatomic abnormalities. Some of the common forms include: Urge incontinence, where the sufferer feels the need to urinate frequently due to the bladder never fully emptying. Overflow incontinence, where blockage causes the bladder to overflow. Functional incontinence, where an individual’s mobility or other conditions lead to the inability to reach the bathroom. And, Mixed incontinence, temporary incontinence, and bedwetting.

The absorbent products available to help manage bowel and bladder control are many, and come in every brand, size, and style you can imagine. In general, these are the available options:

  • Boxers- The look and feel of regular boxer style underwear with the absorbency of a pull-on option. 
  • Pull-on – Pull up and down like traditional underwear, but provide stretch panels comfort, and tear away sides for easy removal, and of course, absorption. 
  • Adjustable underwear- Designed for both men and women, have tabs to reposition and adjust for fit. They also offer tear away sides for easy changing. 
  • Briefs/adult diapers- For men and women, with max protection for heavy to complete loss of bladder and bowel control. These offer tape tabs for removal by caregivers. 
  • Undergarments- These are designed for more than a light leak, but not a full void. They are held in place with an elastic strap, and fasten with buttons and straps. 
  • Booster pads and inserts- These are pads designed to offer extra protection to other incontinence products.
  • Pads and Guards- These are designed for light bladder leakage, pad adheres to cloth underwear with an adhesive strip, and can be used with disposable underwear.
