What are pads?
Pads are among the most common means of delivering targeted therapy, medicated ingredients or safeguarding a specific area of the body for a particular medical purpose. These products encompass a huge range of potential products, including cooling headache pads, hot/cold therapy pads, nursing pads, bladder control pads, moleskin pads, first aid pads and bandages and much more. As of March 2020, this now encompasses menstrual care pads after being included in the CARES Act.
