Incontinence products are designed for different needs, each with varying capacities and sizes. Security and odor are key considerations for consumers.  Fit follows closely behind quality.  The increased active lifestyle of older adults dictates the need for streamlined products, which move with the body. 

Key requirements for adult diapers:

  • Absorbency
  • Design
  • Thickness
  • Performance
