Adult Diaper Review and Testing
by Gary Evans
Our AssessmentThis adult diaper retailer does extensive testing on the products it carries. It provides a wealth of information on the dimensions, absorbency and capabilities of a number of adult briefs, and it also supplies a brief review of each product. Even though this is a retail website, we found the testing to be appropriate and balanced. Downsides are that comfort is not addressed, and mainstream supermarket brands such as Depend are not included.
Disposable Adult Diapers Reviews
by Editors of IncontinenceSupport.info
Our AssessmentIncontinence Resource Center rates 13 brands of diapers according to several criteria, including both wet and dry comfort, absorbency, rewet absorbency and ease of removal. The authors fail to describe how they conduct the testing. Abena, Molicare and DryCare get the highest ratings here, with top marks for fit, ease of use, comfort while dry and absorbency. The reviews, although a little informal and anecdotal, are detailed and informative.
The New Diaper Primer
by Editors of IncontinentSupport.org
Our AssessmentThe New Diaper Primer is an excellent source of information on wearing diapers for incontinence. While diapers aren't compared directly, the authors say Molicare makes an excellent premium diaper. They caution against what they call "cheaper store brand diapers," saying they are prone to leakage. However, no test results are provided to back up that assessment.
Tips & Advice: Breathable Outer Layer Briefs Comparison Chart
by Editors of NationalIncontinence .com
Our AssessmentThis retailer offers several informative, comprehensive comparison charts on different types of adult diapers and incontinence products. Each list is comprised of over a dozen premium products, which are ranked as "Good," "Better" or "Best." National Incontinence says the ratings are based on absorbency, cost and wearability, although the website doesn't appear to have conducted any formal testing. The charts also list the cost per diaper and delineate key features of the products.
Molicare Super Plus Briefs
by Editors of NewFreedomSolutions.com
Our AssessmentNewFreedomSolutions.com, another incontinence management products retailer, gives the Molicare Super Plus its official recommendation, saying it works well for "severe bladder and bowel leakage with heavy gushes of urine" and provides "[m]aximum security for day and night use." The website doesn't appear to have done any testing on the product, but its key features are listed.
Adult Diapers & Pads
by Editors of NorthShoreCare.com
Our AssessmentNorthShore Care Supply doesn't review adult diapers, but it does give Abena's Abri-Form X-Plus brief its top recommendation. While the descriptions mention excellent absorbency, it's not clear how this was determined or if Abena was compared to other brands of adult diapers.
What's the Best Adult Diaper?
by Justin Peters
Our AssessmentThis lighthearted feature about adult diapers was written for Slate's "Geezers" issue. The author, a 27-year-old man, personally field-tests a variety of adult diapers and rates them for wearability, absorbency, longevity and style, although his methods are far from scientific. He tests a Kroger store brand diaper, a Depend Super Plus, an Attends Super Plus and a Molicare Super Plus. Ultimately, he names the Molicare Super Plus the superior product, saying it has a better fit and that it is "orders of magnitude more absorbent" than the other products.

Tranquility Diaper Review -- Tranquility Overnight Underwear
by Editors of EMedicalNow.com
Our AssessmentEMedical, an incontinence supply source, provides what it calls a "review" of Tranquility Overnight Underwear, although the text reads more like marketing copy than thoughtful analysis.
