I hope this does not come off as intrusive, but I am a design student looking to do my next project around incontinence and absorbent underwear as it affects so many people. If you are willing to share, I have a few questions that could help with my research:
– What are your preferred terms for the products you use (eg. incontinence underwear, absorbent underwear)?
– What are the main issues with products that are currently available?
– What product works best for you (eg. pads, underwear…), and why?
– Is reusable absorbent underwear appealing to you? This already seems to be popular for children’s nappies and period products, but I have also seen a couple of brands that offer underwear for light bladder leaks targeted primarily at women.
– Does the idea of specially designed trousers sound appealing? These could offer either a second layer of protection, help mask the shape of underwear, or provide easier access.
Hi, I’m not sure it matters what you call a product. someone will take offence somewhere my biggest concern about incontinence product at the moment is that not many of them are biodegradable. and as many people before me have mentioned the plastic-backed slips hold their shape and integrity much better than the alternatives.
personly I have invested a fair amount of money in purchasing reusable products, trying to find one that works. but to no success.
trousers that help prevent leak sound like a Brillant idea. darker clothing is always the best choice for someone wearing a pad . as for easy access. trousers always come down lol.
If you were wanting a product tester, I would be happy to help. I understand a certain amount about R and D. when the maker of my proscription changed manufacturing plants. I took it upon myself to disassemble one of their old pads and a new one. and with a tape measure and a vernier, I proved the new product to be substandard quality. they did not take kindly to these finding. but as I forwarded the email to the continence service in my area, they changed suppliers.
