Continence Product Advisor

The Continence Product Advisor has been created for a world-wide audience. Continence Central is focused on US products only, so once you have decided which type of product, or products, you think are the best for you, return to Continence Central.

Here on Continence Central you will find companies providing products that will match the description(s) you found at Continence Product Advisor. You may also wish to discuss these products with your healthcare professional before making a final decision.

If you already know which type of product(s) you want and are looking for manufacturers or retailers, then click on Products by Type now.

The Continence Product Advisor was created by an editorial team based at University College London and the University of Southampton in partnership with a web design team at the International Continence Society (ICS). Based on the findings of the recently published fifth International Consultation on Incontinence, it aims to make independent, evidence-based advice available and accessible to incontinence product users first and foremost, but also to healthcare professionals, purchasers and manufacturers. It is:

· Independent: written and reviewed by continence healthcare professionals and users of continence products.

· Evidence-based: where possible content is based on evidence (or expert opinion if evidence is lacking) with references to sources.

· Generic: focuses on product designs and types without reference to branded products, except when essential.

· Not-for-profit: no advertising is displayed, the development and maintenance of the website is funded through educational grants.

· International: linked to information in different countries for supplementary local advice on product availability, guidelines and regulations.
