No need for wearing bulky, diaper-like products. ARD pads have a unique butterfly shape that makes them easy to use and keep in place without irritating tape. Designed for an active lifestyle, ARD pads can be quickly changed in the privacy of a restroom. They are disposable, biodegradable and flushable.

Because of their unique shape, ARD pads stay in place during most normal activity. The soft material conforms to body contours and acts as a liner and barrier to normal undergarments and clothing. One pad can absorb up to 6 ml and can be doubled up for extra absorption.

The soft, strong ARD pad material also acts as a breathable moisture barrier to clothing. By absorbing body moisture, ARD pads help minimize chapped, cracked and irritated skin to prevent burning and itching. These pads have excellent wet strength, are latex free, and 100% made in the USA.

Compact, measuring just 3-1/2 x 5 inch open (1 3/4 inch folded for use), ARD pads can be discreetly carried for use when needed. Available in boxes of 24 for $7.50, they may be ordered online at: www.birchwoodmedical.com.
