The diaper technology was developed by SCA Hygiene Products with technological help from the Norwegian-based company Simpro. It is equipped with electronic sensors connected to the internet via 3G, and accordingly creates information regarding the exact time and amount of leakage. The information is subsequently gathered in a report which in detail outlines the person’s help requirements, contributing to the provision of better individual care for the person and furthermore helping to improve elderly care and routines in nursing homes.
