Abstract

Although many successful treatments for incontinence exist they are not effective or suitable for all people. Inconspicuous and dependable management with continence products and devices plays a crucial part in maintaining quality of life. We aim to briefly review what is known and not known in the field of continence products and devices and set out suggested priorities for research and development. The field of continence product research encompasses techniques and designs from basic laboratory science, through to clinical trials of products and to evaluations of service delivery models. Priorities for research include determining prevalence and costs of product use, development of patient reported outcomes, and development of methods for measuring skin health and for quantifying urine/faecal leakage. Product development priorities include better washable pads for women, absorbent products for fecal incontinence and flatus filters. Clinical trials of different product categories (e.g., devices for men) are needed, as are qualitative studies of patient experiences of product use. Neurourol. Urodynam
