The present study presents an objective method to quantify discretion in terms of body close fit of incontinence care products. A 3D scan-method based on a structured light sensor and industrial inspection software was developed to record and evaluate different product designs dressed on a mannequin. All of the instrumentation and software are commercially available and performance evaluated in order to assure reproducibility. The methodology is applicable to dry as well as wetted products and has proven useful for comparisons of different pull-on type of disposable incontinence products.
