Background and context Most people with urinary incontinence are given limited choice when provided with absorbent products through the British National Health Service (NHS), even though the available range is large. Objective To investigate users' preferences for four disposable designs (inserts, all-in-ones, belted/T-shaped and pull-ups) and towelling washable/reusable products, day and night. Design Shopping experiment. Setting and participants Community-dwelling women and men in England with moderate-to-heavy urinary incontinence recruited to a larger trial. Intervention Participants tested each design and selected products they would prefer with a range of different budgets. Main outcome measures Design preferences (rankings); 'purchasing' decisions from designated budgets. Results Eighty-five participants (49 men) tested products, 75 completed the shopping experiment. Inserts, most frequently supplied by the NHS, were ranked second to pull-ups by women and lowest by men. When faced with budget constraints, up to 40% of participants opted to 'mix-and-match' designs. Over 15 different combinations of products were selected by participants in the shopping experiment. Most (91%) stated a willingness to 'top-up' assigned budgets from income to secure preferred designs. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
