Discipline: Professional Concept

Incontinence is often an underreported problem that tends to increase with age, affecting up to 80% of the elderly patients in long-term facilities. The COMFORT CARE system’s personable yet discreet design features a Sensor Tag that is affixed on the adult diaper for moisture detection, which sends a wireless signal when wet through the Smart Strap placed under the mattress to the nurse’s station or mobile device. Depending on dampness, the carer can then prioritize patients in order of urgency to reduce discomfort or possible infections. The system is quick and easy to install, making it the ideal solution in a multiple patient setting.
