Abstract

Incontinence management currently depends largely on single-use products. Reusable products exist but are less developed and less widely used. There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of products. Some evidence exists to support the use of reusable products instead of, or as well as, single-use ones.Currently it is likely that some use of reusable products, in a mix with single-use products, is the best route to more sustainable product provision. This article discusses the evidence for, and barriers to, the use of reuseable products, and suggestions to promote it.
