How it works

The incontinence product has integrated sensors and contains a personal clip that measures saturation. The clip transmits information via Bluetooth and 4G network to the WetSens Monitor app, which is installed on the caregivers mobile device. The app allows caregivers to track saturation levels and take timely action when it is time for a change.

The clip registers and gives notifications to the app

The clip is registered by scanning the clip on the mobile device. The resident is then registered in the WetSens system and linked with the personal clip.

Every time the clip is attached to an incontinence product it registers and gives notifications to the app, giving the caregiver information about the resident, size and type of product, how long the product has been attached, and current wetness levels.

The health care sectors

Biggest challenge

Incontinence is one of the biggest challenges in the health care sector. Continence care is time-consuming and physically demanding for health care providers. For residents, incontinence may cause physical discomfort and a reduced quality of life.
