Sensassure leverages wearables to transform elder care. Its first product, the SmartPatch, tackles the pressing problem of urinary incontinence.
Sensassure is developing a sensor (the SmartPatch) that sits on the outside of any commercially available incontinence product (colloquially, a diaper) to measure the level of wetness on the inside of the incontinence product from the outside. The sensor… · More then wirelessly relays this information to caregivers so that more effective continence care can be provided. Leveraging the SmartPatch system allows nursing homes to set a new gold-standard for continence care that reduces the time residents spend in a wet brief and decreases sleep interruptions, in turn reducing incidences of skin breakdown, pressure ulcers, and other major health conditions prevalent in nursing homes today.
