Why Choose a Pad?

  • The Removal Process is Easier than a Pant Product

Instead of replacing your underwear with a pull up product, you can enjoy the simplicity of a pad. Simply lift them out of your underwear and stretch pants with no extra hassle!

  • You Won’t Feel Hot and Bothered

Don’t worry about the dreaded “diaper bulk”. Think more discretion than padded weight. Instead of being uncomfortable in a large product, you will forget you are even wearing protection.

  • There are a Variety of Styles

Shaped pads are anatomically shaped pads to provide maximum security and comfort. You can purchase shaped pads in designs for both women and men. Large shaped pads are typically used for moderate to heavy incontinence, whereas small pads are generally used for light incontinence. Some pads also feature wings, which makes fixation easier.


Who are Pads Suitable for?

Pads are easier to put on and take off than all in ones or pull up pants, so are recommended for those with a lack of mobility. They are also recommended for light to heavy incontinence. For very severe incontinence however, we’d recommend an all in one or pull up.


What Makes a Reliable Incontinence Pad?

  • Maximum Comfort

 It is likely you will be wearing a pad for a long period of time, so looking for your ideal design is important.

  • Secure Fit with no Movement

 Ensure your pad fits securely and does not move around during use. It is essential to look for a pad that is close-fit. Choosing an anatomically shaped pad can solve this. If you have problems with your pad moving around, you can try using them with fixation pants.

  • A Suitable Absorption Capacity

If you have heavy incontinence, choosing a light small pad would be ineffective. Think about more than just discretion when buying a pad. If you need a larger pad for heavy incontinence, it is better not to waste money by choosing a tiny pad.
