Innovating the future of continence care with ABENA Nova

ABENA Nova is the result of visionary minds who dared to reimagine the future of continence care.

We imagined a future where we no longer accepted leaks, rashes and wet diapers as a fact of life in continence care. A future where care feels like home, and caregivers have time to personalize care. With ABENA Nova, we had a vision that innovative sensor technology merged with ABENA’s knowledge and premium incontinence products could free time and improve quality of life for caregivers and users.

Rethinking the future of continence care

Less leakages. Reduced workload. More time for quality care.

Maintaining and improving the standards for continence care in the years to come is a real challenge facing society.  And at ABENA, we believe quality of life and continence care go hand-in-hand. When residents in nursing homes and care facilities are incontinent, it is not uncommon to hear about physical discomfort, invasion of privacy, loss of dignity, and interrupted sleep. These are just a few of the ways incontinence affects quality of life.


About Innovative sensor technology

ABENA Nova fuses the high quality incontinence products and entrepreneurial spirit from ABENA with innovative sensor technology from MediSens Wireless.

The solution consists of a premium quality incontinence product with integrated sensors and a personal clip that constantly measures saturation levels. The clip sends information to the caregivers via Bluetooth and 4G network to the WetSens app. The app allows caregivers to track saturation levels and take timely action when it is time for a change.

The sensors are integrated directly into the product, bringing the Internet of Things into the health care sector – making it up close and personal.

Data and actionable insights provide the best life with incontinence.

ABENA Nova is a total continence management system that supports institutions in managing continence care.

The data provided by ABENA Nova helps caregivers and institutions make procedures more efficient.  This ensures staff can spend their time caring for patients, instead of following inflexible routines that are designed to fit work schedules instead of individual urination patterns.

The algorithm behind the system is tried and tested on more than 1 million products, and as more data is collected, the algorithm is continuously fine-tuned.

The continence care of tomorrow is ready for you today

With ABENA Nova, caregivers are provided with real-time actionable data that help them time every-day care activities to the individual resident. Incontinence products are changed exactly when they need to be changed.

The result is caregivers who are able to learn more about a resident’s behaviour over time, and empowering them to improve general procedures based on actionable insights.

Lastly, the many sensors in the incontinence product registers every detail about where in the product the urine is detected and how it spreads in the incontinence product. This is information the manufacturer can use to develop and optimize the incontinence products.

Are you ready to meet the continence care demands of the future?

Digital continence care supports a personalized approach, putting the individual resident center-stage and offering new opportunities to improve quality of life.

The impact of digital continence care is profound and has the potential to bring about lasting, positive changes to daily practices, staff satisfaction, and happiness among residents and their relatives.
