Prevent life-threatening infectious diseases 

Elderly people with dementia are more often affected by infections. An elderly person with dementia is seven times more likely to die after being admitted with an infection, compared to an elderly person without dementia, who has not been treated for an infection. Therefore, it is important that citizens do not stay too long with a wet incontinence pad, where bacteria thrive and develop. Here, Wear & Care’s sensor technology for incontinence pads can help to implement new routines, which reduces the time spend with a wet incontinence pad.
