Forbes acknowledges 43-year-old brand third consecutive year for severe incontinence solutions

The Tranquility® brand was recognized among Forbes Health’s annual “Best Adult Diapers of 2024” with top selections in three categories, the most for any incontinence product manufacturer. 

Tranquility Premium DayTime™ Underwear received the nod for “Best for Daytime Use,” Tranquility Air-Plus™ Bariatric Briefs were recognized as “Best Bariatric” product and Tranquility Swimmates® were chosen as “Best for Swimming.” 

“We appreciate the continued acknowledgment from Forbes. We were the first manufacturer to attempt to solve the needs of severely incontinent individuals and their caregivers. Over 40 years later, this recognition is a testament of our team’s drive to continuously innovate the best products for those struggling with incontinence,” said Andrew Stocking, CEO and President of Principle Business Enterprises, Inc., manufacturer of Tranquility. “It’s our mission to uplift the lives of those we serve by restoring their dignity and confidence to enjoy all of life’s moments.”  

Tranquility’s three selections among the 10 total categories were the most for any absorbent product maker, with two other brands landing a pair of top products each, and three other companies receiving one acknowledgement apiece. 

This is Tranquility’s third consecutive year of having three products included on the Forbes Health list, having achieved recognition with the same trio of items for 2022 and 2023. 

Products selections were based on research from the Forbes Health Advisory Board, a panel of clinicians and practitioners that analyzed data on more than 90 products, factoring in price, sizes available, absorbency, adjustability and more. 

Breaking Down Tranquility’s ‘Best of’ Selections 

Here’s what Forbes judges had to say about Tranquility’s three “Best Adult Diaper” title recipients. 

Tranquility Premium DayTime Underwear –“Best for Daytime Use”

Why it was picked: In providing DayTime Underwear with a “5 out of 5” rating – one of just four items to receive a perfect rating from Forbes – the panel of judges stated “the product’s ultra-absorbent core is designed for active users in need of heavy leak protection. What’s more, the additional absorption capacity facilitates skin dryness and neutralizes odors. DayTime Underwear is designed with discreet comfort and movement in mind. And thanks to the tear-away side seams, they’re easy to remove.” 

Additional “Pros” for DayTime Underwear included: 

  • Maximum absorbent capacity of 25 oz  
  • Kufguards® – Tranquility’s patented inner leg cuffs that help prevent leg leakage by channeling fluid and liquid stool to the premium superabsorbent core, where it is quickly absorbed 

Tranquility Air-Plus Bariatric Briefs – “Best Bariatric”

Why it was picked: Forbes rated Air-Plus Bariatric Briefs 4.6/5, pointing out these briefs “can hold up to 34 oz of liquid while offering breathability and moisture control to keep skin dry. They can also accommodate waist sizes up to 108” with stretchable side panels.” 

Additional “Pros” for Air-Plus™ Bariatric Briefs included: 

  • “Micro-hook” closure tabs ensure a snug, secure fit 
  • Wetness indicator changes color to let wearer or caregiver know when it’s time for a change 

Tranquility Swimmates – “Best for Swimming”

Why it was picked: Rating Swimmates as a 4.7 out of 5, Forbes described them as “unisex, disposable swimwear that can be worn discreetly underneath a swimsuit. Its design is meant to minimize swelling and prevent the brief from breaking apart or dissolving when it becomes wet.” 

Additional “Pros” for Swimmates included: 

  • Tear-away side seams make for easy removal 
  • Snug inner leg cuffs prevent leakage 

All three products were also highlighted for being made from latex-free materials.
