What is ‘Confitex’?


Confitex is a company who design incontinence underwear that is both functional and stylish, giving you the confidence to live life without holding back. It’s that simple – and that revolutionary!


The inspiration came when friends, Mark and Frantisek had an idea to manufacture high-performance ski suits after experiencing the common notion of ‘busting to go’ while high on a mountaintop. However, their horizons expanded when they learnt about how many people live with that reality whether they’re on a mountaintop or not – that reality being incontinence.


The research and figures around incontinence astounded them. One in three women and one in ten men will experience incontinence in their lifetime, and the more they investigated, the more frustrated they became with the limited options available.

With their combined knowledge and experience, the entrepreneurs created and patented a high performance textile which would form the foundation of their product plus meet the needs of people who wanted to do away with plastic based disposables, and Confitex was born – fashionable, comfortable, reusable incontinence underwear designed with confidence and freedom in mind.


How does Confitex work?


The secret to Confitex’s superior performance comes in the form of their patented three-layer technology. This central panel works to wick away moisture, absorb liquid and protect clothing with a unique waterproof outer layer made from a high-density weave. The absorbent middle layer can hold up to 350ml of liquid to suit a range of needs.

Confitex’s commitment to the environment not only makes their underwear a sustainable option, but also increases the breathability and comfort of their design – because less plastic is not only better for the planet, but better for you, too!

How will you save money with Confitex?


While disposable products may give the illusion of saving you a few dollars in the short run, Confitex undies are designed for durability. Their world-first technology means their underwear can be worn with confidence all day long and can be put straight in the washing machine ready to reuse for up to 200 washes – just like normal clothing! When you think about the cost of purchasing one pair of Confitex underwear versus 200 disposable pads or diapers – that’s a lot of money saved.


What is the Confitex difference?


Confitex marries performance technology with beautiful design. They have ranges for both men and women which look like normal underwear, are comfortable to wear and suitable for everyday use.


For men, they offer sleek boxer cuts in black or grey (which can feature a fly opening if preferred), and have sizes from S to 3XL.

The wait for Allegro Medicals’ much anticipated logo redesign is almost over! In just one week the world will behold our new logo.  Aw heck, who am I kidding. I can’t wait a week! Let’s reveal it now!

Here it is!  Tadaaaaa….

The “new look” highlights cool subtle blues with hints of Caribbean sea foam. Combined with the mystery and passion of charcoal grey, the ensemble really says – we’re professional but we also care. Which we do by the way. Allegro Medical has been around since 1996 in case you did not know. Yep, we’ve helped over 2 million people with their medical supply needs. Quick story. Have you heard of Google? You, know the search engine and the maps and the email and the Chrome browser and the phone… Well, we started Allegro Medical (the first online medical supply store) even before Google. Ha!

Okay, back to the logo. Look at the amazing fonts. You can Just feel the effortless lower case relaxed style which makes you want to say, “a l l e g r o    m e d i c a l”.  Say it with me now  – a l l e g r o   m e d i c a l”.  It’s all lower case. I know. It’s like a comfortable pair of slippers. The fuzzy kind that slide right on. Capital letters are fancy. The all lower case font really says, “hey, I feel good about my self. I’m good at what I do. I don’t need to impress anyone.”

You might notice if you have spent a lot of time staring at our current logo, we booted the “.com” off the end. Who needs it? Everyone knows to type “allegromedical.com” into your browser to find our website. And if you just type “allegromedical”, our friends at Google will send you right on over anyway. It’s probably like the same thing that happened with telegraph messages. You know, you used to have to say “stop” after every sentence. Our new logo is amazing “stop”. It will bring about world peace “stop”. It will be portrayed by Ben Affleck in an upcoming action movie “stop”. Eventually, everyone figured out you don’t have to say “stop” after every dang thing. I’m sure if you needed to send a telegraph today you don’t say “stop”.

Lastly, our designers felt our logo needed embellishment. Similar to popular shows like “the Voice”, “America’s Got Talent”, “American Idol”, and “the Bachelor”, we held our own contest for icons; and they came from far and wide. There were globes, eagles, check marks, rockets, wheelchairs, medical symbols, bears, and graphics of all types. The competition was fierce and the judges deliberated. But they were deadlocked. It came down to a dart throw – while blind folded – at the icons. And the winner was selected! The 3 dimensional box thing. With only minor injuries, “3D” as he’s known around the office now, has already started embellishing our new logo with skill and poise. Oh, and since we’re still celebrating our 20 year anniversary, the “20 year anniversary” button is right there to let you know we still have sale prices on thousands of medical supplies.

Enjoy the new logo!
