Adult Diaper Review and Testing
by Gary Evans and Editors of XPMedical.com
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 18 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, though the reviews indicate that at least some of the information is based on hands-on use. The reviews, although a little informal and anecdotal, are detailed and informative.
The New Diaper Primer
by Editors of IncontinentSupport.org
Our AssessmentIncontinentSupport.org also hosts the New Diaper Primer, an excellent source of information on wearing diapers for incontinence. While diapers aren't compared directly here, 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.

The charts also list the cost per diaper and delineate key features of the products.
