For people living with disabilities, it is essential to reduce the time spent on manual checks and changes of their incontinence products, so that they can focus on living the life they want, filled with the activities they enjoy.
With ABENA Nova, the independence of people living with a disability is increased, as the need for manual checks is eliminated and there are no unnecessary changes.
Instead, caregivers change the incontinence product only when needed – and without checking it first.
Never too early. Never too late.
No more manual checks
On the smart device, caregivers can see to what extent the incontinence product is saturated.
On this basis, they can decide if the resident needs changing right away or if it can wait. The smart device sends another notification if a leak is imminent. This helps avoid wet bed sheets or chairs.
With fewer leakages, caregivers have more time to give personal attention to each resident and meet their individual needs.
Less skin irritation
Incontinence Associated Dermatitis (IAD) is common for people living with incontinence. It occurs when urine or feces comes in contact with the skin.
A number of factors may contribute to the development of IAD, including infrequent changes of incontinence products causing a moist environment.
With ABENA Nova, the incontinence product is always changed at the right time.
Because we care
The information collected about the individual resident is used for planning the best and most dignified continence care, e.g. ensuring better nights, fewer leakages, and good toileting routines for every resident.
Because we care, ABENA Nova is a secure solution for urinary incontinence. Before use, the resident or relatives always consent to the use of the product.
Case studies at institutions for people with disabilities have demonstrated the unique benefits of ABENA Nova.
Most of the residents at Philadelphia Zorg in the Netherlands are severely incontinent. This means that continence care takes up both a lot of time and a lot of resources.

A personal clip measures the degree of saturation and continuously registers and gives notifications to the WetSens Monitor.
The clip is small and designed to prevent any potential discomfort resulting contact with the skin.
Residents wear an ABENA Nova premium incontinence product with integrated sensors and a small attachable clip.
The sensors are activated by moisture.
ABENA’s premium incontinence products with integrated sensors continuously detect moisture in the product.
The products are Nova Form Premium and Nova San Premium.
More focus on individual needs
With ABENA Nova, it is possible to monitor the saturation of urine very closely.
Besides allowing for timely changes of incontinence products, the data provided by ABENA Nova, also allows caregivers to adapt the changing time to specific needs and events.
For instance, this could be relevant when the resident plans to have visits from family or friends, or if the resident has skin irritations.
ABENA Nova enables more focus on individual needs which is essential in making residents feel seen and heard.
