Personalizing continence care
During the last decade, the use of wearable sensors has become widespread, and digital products are now finding their way into the daily routines at care facilities. In several countries, nursing homes and specialty care institutions are already experimenting with using new, digital solutions, and more are ready to implement it in their facilities.
The results are notable and promising, proving that digitalizing continence care means personalizing overall care. In terms of improved comfort day and night, better overall health, and more time for care, digital continence care has an impact on quality of life for residents as well as caregivers.

What is digital continence care with ABENA Nova?
ABENA Nova with MediSens is one of the leading digital continence solutions. ABENA Nova consists of a premium quality incontinence product with integrated sensors that continuously monitor saturation levels. A small clip attached to the product sends the information to the caregivers via an app on their mobile device. In this way, the caregiver can see which resident needs changing and take action accordingly.
The information collected about the individual resident is then used for optimum planning of the continence care, e.g. how to ensure a good night’s sleep and good toileting routines.
ABENA Nova is a secure solution, and before use, the resident or relatives consent to the use of the product.
