Incontinence is a common problem faced by adults and elderly patients. The condition can be embarrassing
and inconvenient and it can interfere with the activities of daily living. Adult diapers and pads can
provide the protection you need to better manage this condition. To learn more about incontinence,

Types of Fit
Adult Diapers generally come in two different full-coverage fits. Determining
which is the best type of fit depends on caregiver/user preference and product usage.
Tape-On/Tab-top adult diapers are a great solution for caregivers because they are easy to get off and on. They are best suited for patients with limited mobility or who are bedridden. Shop Tape-On Diapers
Is there a discreet solution for incontinence?
Pull-Up adult diapers tend to be more discreet under clothing and are closer in look and feel to regular underwear. If you are experiencing light incontinence, gender-specific pads and briefs can be a great solution. Shop for WomenShop for Men
How many diapers will I need?
Rule of thumb for an average incontinence product user is about 4 diapers per day.
What size incontinence diaper should I use?
Every brand of adult diapers has its own sizing. Use your measurements to determine the appropriate size for each brand. Start by measuring around the user's waist or hip. Use the larger measurement to determine the size. Samples are a great way to ensure the best fit and application. Diapers should have a snug but comfortable fit. Shop Samples
What if I'm still having leaks?
Be sure to check that the diaper is the proper size for the user. If leaks still occur, Booster Pads can be inserted into an adult diaper for customizable protection. Don't try to remedy leaks by double diapering or inserting a plastic-backed Incontinence Pad inside of an adult diaper. Shop Booster Pads
Is a brief different from a diaper?
The terms adult diaper, incontinence underwear, and incontinence brief are all interchangeable. Be sure to check whether the product you are ordering is a pull-up or tape-on style.
