An Australian company named Simavita has created the world’s first pair of electronic underwear, meant to alert carers about patient’s incontinent episodes.
This brilliant innovation was designed to make assessment easier, simpler and more accurate for carers as well as more effective and less embarrassing for users.
Significantly, apart from improving the quality of life for aged care residents and those who care for them, the SIMsystem™ can save more than 50% of the cost of labour associated with manual continence assessments. Thereby providing that all important additional time for greater focus on other activities in the care of the aging person.
How it works
Simavita CEO Philippa Lewis said:
“We developed SIMsystem to provide greater comfort and dignity to the elderly while aiming to significantly lower costs for aged care facilities.”
Simavita is a company established to develop solutions that improve quality of life across the Global Healthcare Spectrum.
