    Abstract

    Fifty-one female patients, incontinent of urine, were asked to compared two different combinations of pants and pads used in the ambulatory management of their incontinence. They were offered the Kanga pant with a Kanga pad and the Sandra pant with a Bambi pad. Each patient tried both pants and pads and thus comparisons could be made on a within-patient basis. Both systems kept a similar proportion of patients dry during the day and night. In terms of comfort, however, the Kanga pant was quite clearly preferred to the Sandra. The Bambi pad was rated more highly than the Kanga pad, although the difference between the two pads was not so pronounced as that between pants.
