Paradigm change and incontinence culture 

An incontinence pad needs to be changed on time, but when is that? In the care sector,  have long been replaced with the assumption that staff knows when a diaper is full. There is a tendency for the citizen to get a bigger diaper on than necessary, but is that the solution? The diaper can be so large that the citizen can barely be mobilized or that the diuresis runs out of the sides of the diaper, instead of being collected in the diaper. This is because the size of the diaper means that it does not sit correctly on the citizen or has gaps in the sides.

Wear&Care has developed an overview of when a diaper should be defined as wet and should be changed. The system notifies when a diaper is full and can also be used to determine if the citizen is wearing the correct diaper size. In the work with incontinence, you can use Wear&Care’s technology to make an analysis of the individual citizen’s urination pattern and as a result, the citizen can be helped to an easier and more comfortable life with incontinence.
