Popular Questions


Overflow incontinence is involuntary urination. The bladder muscles are unable to contain urine under pressure and feel like the bladder is unable to be emptied completely.

No. Cutting back on fluid intake can lead to dehydration, constipation and irritation of the bladder. It is true that certain types of fluids should be avoided such as alcohol and caffeine that irritate the bladder.


No, doubling up on products that contain a moisture barrier will not increase absorption. Briefs, disposable underwear and pads/ liners are typically designed with a moisture proof backing that stops the urine from passing through. This approach to adding more capacity or addressing leakage concerns only works if the second product is a “flow-through” design with no moisture proof backing.

Latex-Free means that the product is not made from natural rubber (latex) or doesn’t contain any natural rubber.
