Eighty percent of consumers dissatisfied with current adult diapers in the market because of lack of comfort, frequent failure to prevent slippages, protrusion, instability, BrightMedical.com survey finds

PHILADELPHIA , February 23, 2012 (press release) – Attends, Prevail and Covidien are leading medical suppliers and specialists in manufacturing quality incontinence products. They have collaborated with Bright Medical, one of the top distributors of medical supplies across the country, to deliver their affordable range of improved adult diapers right to the doorsteps of the incontinence patients.

Incontinence, whether urinary or fecal, poses some tough questions to both the sufferers as well as the manufacturers of incontinence products. Where the patients find it difficult to lead an active social life due to fear of leakages in public, the manufacturers of incontinence supplies need to ensure that whatever they promise about their products must be delivered every time these products are tested by the patients in real life.

Recently, in an independent survey conducted by BrightMedical.com, one of the top distributors of incontinence products in the USA, the views of incontinence patients both male and female were sought on a variety of subjects concerning them. In a startling revelation, there was near unanimity among the participants regarding the inefficiency of most incontinence products; and at the same time, the consensus opinion was that adult diapers are the best value-for-money incontinence product.

A whopping 80 percent of the participants were dissatisfied with the current incontinence products in the market. The reasons cited include lack of comfort, frequent failure to prevent slippages, protrusion and instability. These participants wanted to see an improvement in the adult diapers on various parameters.

“When I jog wearing adult diapers, they tend to lose their gripping and thereafter, it’s a constant fear that remains with me until I reach home and adjust the diapers,” responded one of the participants.

“A month back, we had a big party at the restaurant to celebrate the first birthday of my niece. And the worst thing happened – I leaked! Although I was wearing adult diapers, my pants got wet. Because of the few drops spilling out of the diapers, my evening was spoiled,” complained another.

When the results of the survey were shared with the local representatives of Attends, Prevail and Covidien, leading manufacturers of incontinence products, they were not surprised. “ We receive input and suggestions from our customers regarding their experiences with our adult diapers on a daily basis. We continue to strive for perfection in our manufacturing processes, and our R&D team works diligently to design the adult diapers that meet all the critical thresholds. The latest batches of adult diapers hitting the market are packed with extra absorbency, in addition to minor fixes in the design and fastening tabs for a firmer gripping.”

The efforts of Bright Medical have already started to show positive results. “During the previous two months, we have witnessed a quantum jump in the sales of Attends, Prevail and Covidien adult diapers from our store,” confirms Andrei Lemiasheuski, CEO of Bright Medical.

“It seems that incontinence patients are now largely happy about the latest adult diapers being offered by the top brands.”

These are, indeed, interesting times for the incontinence industry, with patients demanding better adult diapers at lower prices. And the intense competition among the leading players in the industry ensures that the patients get what they want. This win-win situation augurs well for the incontinence industry.
