Q. What are the benefits of disposable products?
A. Disposable products are able to offer much higher absorbency levels when compared to washable products. There is also a much larger range of choice ranging from slim line rectangular inserts, for light incontinence, to large all-In-one products (adult diapers), capable of dealing with heavy to very heavy levels of incontinence.
Q. What are the benefits of washable products?
A. Washable products can have a cost advantage over disposable products. Although initial costs can be higher, because the products can be reused many times, the cost in the long run is reduced when compared to disposable products. Washable products also tend to be manufactured out of more comfortable materials like cotton. These are also ideal for stress and light incontinence.

Q. Can you explain your absorbency rating system?
A. The absorbency rating system comes in 2 different forms. The first is shown simply in millilitres. You can work out how much liquid this is in practice by comparing it to everyday objects containing liquid, where the amount in ml is shown (eg. small bottles of water etc.). The second is taken from the manufacturers of the product.
