The Afex male incontinence system is the leading incontinence brand for men and offers the most comfortable and empowering system on the market. Don't let the fear of leaks and odor hold you back from experiencing life. Stop by our store or place your order by calling (770) 425-7718 today!

    If you have asthma, cystic fibrosis, COPD, or contract a respiratory illness, a nebulizer that turns liquid medication into a fine mist is a must-have!

That's why we carry a variety of options, including a popular portable sized version that is in stock and waiting for pick-up!
