Medical Conditions Survey Results

Incontinence is never an easy situation to deal with but knowledge of a community of like-minded people out there dealing with similar issues can help us all.   With that in mind, we asked our customers anonymously, what medical condition they had which neccesitated the need for continence products, and what products they used.  We appreciate everyone who shared such a private part of themselves with us and have shared the answers with you below. 

Please note this is only a summary of those Paralogic Customers who responded to our survey in April 2019.  The data below isn't to be taken as representing any physical location, medical condition or product.  Also many customers reported that they used more than one product type and therefore the products shown below do not add to 100% instead reflecting what percentage of customers reported using that product type.

I have been using catheters now for 25 years. I used to sterilise the intermittent catheters because of the exorbitant cost. I continually got bladder and kidney infections, because of this. Paralogic started up ( thank you Anne Marie) and I was able to purchase triple the product at a much more affordable price. The company has grown as have the staff, who are angels. They are understanding and very helpful. I would have to consider them the Australian Company of the century. Every other business runs a poor second place. Thank you Paralogic.

Thank You
