For the jury, the well-considered and field trialled Smart Adult Care solution, will not only take this to the next level, but also make life considerably easier for nurses and healthcare staff working under a lot of pressure. The integration of sensors into disposables has been suggested for all kinds of applications, but this is a big step forward in what is practical and achievable now.
Smartz Adult Care transforms a conventional diaper into a smart, connected medical device. This is a vital step into the future of patient-centred care and smart hygiene services. Equipped with a lightweight, flexible printed sensor and reusable pod, the diaper enables remote monitoring of moisture, movement, and temperature. SmartzAG is product to partner with Henkel to continue its development.
Smartz have accomplished some great milestones to prove our solution in nursing homes over a longer in use period and the results speaks for themselves:
- 80% leakages
- 60% less time in wet diapers
- 8 hrs more time per patient per month for more valuable care activities
