Contiform for women
My daughter is a 16 year old competitive trampolinist and developed urinary incontinence in the past year. Pads were impossible to keep discreet in her leotard, so we tried a disposable, insertable brand from the drugstore- it had her in tears trying to remove it and it was very uncomfortable to wear. Our last resort and only other option was being fitted for a pessary from a gynecologist- imagine at 16! A friend of mine found Contiform online for herself and suggested we try it because it worked so well for her. It was a bit cumbersome at first glance but once folded and wetted with water she said it was as easily and comfortably inserted and removed as a small tampon. My daughter is so happy that she’s dry and no one knows she has a “leak” problem.

I am a busy Mom of two and play hockey in the winter and ball hockey in the summer. I typically go through one heavy pad each game period which I have to leave the game for. Plus just regular day to day activities has me wearing pads all day every day. My Mom found Contiform online and suggested I buy it and considering how much I spend on pads every week anything was worth a shot. It works! I am so happy to not think about pads for my leakage all day that I feel a weight off my shoulders. I can focus on my kids and sports and not how often I have to change a pad or worry about an accident through my clothes. Thank you Contiform!

I must tell you how thrilled I am with your product. I am a Personal Trainer & Fitness Instructor and I have had problems with stress incontinence since my daughter’s birth. Despite years of core training, and the use of a pelvic toner, there are still times in the month when I am badly restricted in what I teach as I cannot risk jumping up and down or anything high impact. Contiform has literally changed my life! I have already recommended Contiform to a few clients and fully intend to spread the message. Thank you again
Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for a speedy service as I received my package on Monday after ordering it with you on Saturday! So I took the opportunity to go for my first run last night with it and it worked! It was such a relief to run in comfort without worrying about any leakage. What a marvellous product and I wished I had known about it before…. I will certainly pass on the details to friends and promote the product anyway I can. It was comfortable and I didn’t even know it was there! So thank you and now I can be confident in the Great South Run this Sunday and with any other exercise I carry out!
Thank you so much for Contiform – it has really put a spring back into my step. It has completely changed my life, I can go out without worrying that I might have an accidental leak. I am sure Contiform will be welcomed by thousands of women. Please can you send me some more leaflets, my practice nurse is very interested.Thank you
Once fitted correctly it is a very user friendly device that provides women with added confidence to carry out normal activities. Especially effective for those who leak mainly during sport or exercise. In our experience, it is a very useful tool for managing stress incontinence.

I am a nurse and have worked in the field of gynaecology for many years. I worked for 6 years for a Consultant Gynaecologist in the UK whose area of interest was Urogynaecology. We trialed several different in-development devices, to help women who suffered with urinary incontinence.
One such device was the Contiform Vaginal Device. The women who had optimum results with this product were the motivated, active women, whose urinary leakage was problematic enough to prevent them from participating in the activities which they enjoyed, but which they had stopped due to the likelihood of urinary leakage.
Insertion of the device posed no problem, and once in place caused no discomfort. The three different sizes allowed for the best fit. That is, no leakage but still able to empty the bladder without difficulty. Although the device can be kept in place for 24 hours, most of the ladies in our clinic only kept the device in while needed.
In appropriate women, wearing the correct size device, Contiform offers an easy, discreet and comfortable solution to the problem of stress urinary incontinence. I will recommend it to women I feel will benefit from its use.

I cannot praise Contiform enough. I wish I had heard about it much earlier. It has changed my life so much.

I cannot begin to tell you how Contiform has changed my life. Now I am not always searching for restrooms and it has saved me from having an operation.

I wish to convey my heartfelt thanks for being introduced to Contiform. As an active 47 year old I am thrilled to finally have control of my personal wetness with the assistance of this product. I have suffered from personal wetness for many years after giving birth to 4 children. I have been an avid netball player all my life and later years became an umpire and a coach. While I love the game and umpired at the highest level I was forced to retire, my personal wetness being the major factor. After several failed operations I came across Contiform and to my shear delight Contiform keeps me perfectly dry. I have now returned to umpiring and am delighted to run and blow my whistle during the game without experiencing any wetness. Contiform has allowed me to once again pursue my passion for netball and umpiring. I wish you every success in your endeavour to make this product known, so that the women of the world suffering personal wetness have an easy alternative that works.

I am a Latin American, ballroom dancing teacher. My six-day a week program includes Salsa, Meringue, Rock N Roll and Swing. I am committed to many hours of constant training and exercise that the dancing industry demands. My wetness problem presented me with many years of fears and embarrassments. I found over the years that I would wear dark slacks and skirts. I would resort to buying two of the same style so I could change outfits without people noticing. I drank as little water as possible, which is not a healthy option with dancing being so physical. I would not ride a bike and turned down the opportunity to take up snow skiing. Contiform has played a major role in my life for the past 15 months and has saved me from many embarrassing moments when coughing, sneezing, dancing, etc., and I am now able to ride a bike once more. I am sure there are many women out there who live with the (unspoken) wetness problem and would not be aware that Contiform exists. Hopefully they will find Contiform and their lives will change as mine did.

I am a mother of three young adults, with a busy life, which goes without saying. Over the years a little stress incontinence has occurred. Things like sneezing, coughing and laughter have led to small accidents however heavy aerobics and exercise were a real concern. Coughs and colds have become more difficult in recent years. And then last year I fell victim to a coughing virus that continued for more than 10 weeks. I cannot begin to convey the embarrassment I suffered during that period. Just after this harrowing experience I was introduced to Contiform. The effect was immediate. Bladder control was again secure. I could leave the house confident of not getting into trouble, plus the fact that I didn’t have to undergo an operation. Contiform is easy to use, easy to look after and easily transportable. I don’t have to use Contiform every day now but for heavy exercise, special events and bouts of coughing, it is perfect. No more risk taking. I have no hesitation in recommending Contiform and will continue to use it myself with confidence.

I would like to say thank you for the Contiform unit. It has made my life so much more comfortable. I can sneeze and cough without wetting myself! Going swimming now in a pool, and knowing that I will not make the water around me turn yellow, is so comforting. The Contiform unit is very comfortable to wear and would recommend it to any woman suffering from the embarrassment of personal wetness. You have no idea how happy I am that I no longer need to take lots of pads with me when I go shopping, one of the joys of my life. Thank you once more for this life-changing product.

I cannot find words to thank you enough for Contiform. I have been using Contiform for the past 4 months and cannot believe it is working 100%. I can now wear slacks and also go swimming. Neither of these things have I been able to do for years, especially swimming, something I have sadly missed doing for a very long time. Thanks again.

I am a fifty-nine year old woman who runs a very busy and successful professional practice. Keeping fit and healthy has always been an important part of my lifestyle including having a personal trainer who recently asked me to expand my exercise regime to include outside training in parks etc. However, I was unable to do this because of a personal wetness problem caused by a prolapsed bladder. Wanting very much to include this new program I scheduled a surgical procedure to try to alleviate my problem. However, a few weeks before the operation, I was introduced to Contiform. The device claimed to correct the problems I was experiencing so I decided to send away for it. I found Contiform to be absolutely brilliant. I am now able to do everything in the way of sport, jumping, running, hopping and things I haven’t been able to do for years. I am running in a marathon this year for the first time in my life and I am doing things I believed that a woman of my age could never do. I have recommended Contiform to almost every woman I know with the same problem and they are just as delighted as I am. The exciting thing is I did not require a surgical procedure that may, or may not, have been successful.

Afex for men
Before my prostate surgery my doctor warned me that I would be leaking urine for a few weeks after my catheter was removed. 6 months later I was still leaking and so embarrassed I didn’t want to leave the house especially in diapers. My wife is always on the computer looking for ways to help me and stumbled across Afex. We spoke with a helpful sales person over the phone who ensured I got what I needed. It took a few hours to get used to before I braved a short walk but I stayed dry. The bag is easy to empty the system feels less cumbersome than a jock and I’m even now back to playing golf. I haven’t used it for nighttime yet but the daytime kit has been so great I think I’m ready to try it in bed now.

My husband has had Parkinson’s for 8 years now and developed incontinence in the past year. We struggled with diapers, urinary tract infections, catheters and condom catheters- he was a mess. My daughter was travelling in the US and found Afex. We called to see if it was available in Canada and it was. We ordered a mobility Assist Kit, my husband had difficulty connecting the receptacle to the bag so I put it all together in the briefs and had him pull it on and off just like regular underwear. He’s used the system for two months now and his skin has healed, he’s stayed almost completely dry (a few little accidents getting out of the car) and has had zero urinary tract infections. I highly recommend the use of Afex to any man suffering or caregiver to use with them.

I’m a big man who’s had prostate problems for years. My last surgery was a radical prostatectomy which left me almost completely unable to hold any urine. I hate diapers and condom catheters are worse but I was stuck. I kept complaining and my doctor’s nurse suggested I try a new device called Afex. Well, what a blessing it has been! I now go out to dinner with my family, I’m back to playing golf and going to the casino. I don’t know what I would do without it.

August 19, 2017Verified Purchase“These are worth every penny. Allow me to travel without changing pads and using bulky Tena yellow or green. Easy to use in an airplane bathroom and I keep a spare in my pocket in a zip lock. That way if it gets wet (happened once after major exertion) I have a place to put the wet one and can use a new one. Less embarrassing when at a friends house then asking “where can I dispose of this giant wet pad.” Just fantastic.”

GREAT PRODUCT“I introduced the Acticuf to my urologist, after trying the velcro strips, and the lever and ball style of clamp. Acticuf is simple, and reusable…I cut off the bag when they are new, and get several days of good use. Have found that applying skin lotion before daily use makes a big difference in comfort. Really the best and lowest cost solution for complete incontinence like mine…no foam or velcro to get saturated, no “o” rings to lose, and I can carry a new spare in my wallet…great confidence in Acticuf (and used daily for 5 years now!) Some guys, who are very large, may find it too tight…maybe Acticuf should add a larger model, as well.”
— (Fred)ACTICUF COMPRESSION POUCH“I have mild incontinence. Heck I am 90 years old I am glad its only mild. I like the acticuf because it is does not cause pain to put it on or when you wear it. It is discreet and much more manly then a pad or liner.”
MADE ME WHOLE AGAIN“I became totally incontinent following prostate cancer surgery. I felt my life was over. I hated living in wet pads. I checked the WEB and found the ActiCuf system. From my first day with the pouch, I was normal again. I was able to go out in public without the worry about leaking. I have regained some of my bladder control but I will wear my ActiCuf for security until I am completely continent. ACTICUF IS A WONDERFUL, EASY TO USE, COMFORTABLE, AND RELIABLE SYSTEM FOR ANY MAN WHO FINDS HIMSELF UNABLE TO CONTROL HIS BLADDER. 5***** PRODUCT.”

UROLOGICAL ACTICUF COMPRESSION POUCH REVIEW
“Being an avid golfer and with incontinence, is a huge problem. When I turned 72, I noticed that I leaked too much and it is really a shame and it became difficult for me to be out for a long time. So I stopped playing golf for about a month because I couldn’t imagine myself wearing diapers. Then a friend recommended this compression pouch. I tried it at home first and didn’t encounter any issues with it, so I wore them wherever I go, even while playing golf. Great!”
— (Dwight, USA)
“Only had it for a few days as I have short term issues cause by medical treatment, this causes frequency and urgency issues, but life must go on. Having being restricted when going out to a 40minute max between peeing I can actually go out and do things. With the HeWee it allowed me to go out visiting, errands and for a meal, first time in over a month! The negatives are the diaphragm take some getting used too [build the time up and use talc!] Looser fitting trousers also better. The positives are that I can get on with everything without always looking for the loo’s or dashing off every 10-40 minutes etc! Delivery was also quick.”
— (N.G., UK)
“I had prostate cancer in 2004 and for the last 14 years have had to wear diapers and needing to change every 2 hours like a baby – no fun!! Until I found the HeWee Go ACTIVE system from Custom Divers and now I’m in heaven! I give this product 10 out of 10 as it has changed my life. If you have any questions contact Alex at Custom Divers – he will be very happy to help you. Very happy user”
