Our Executive Vice President R&D & Sustainability, Annick De Poorter, has spoken at a press event in Belgium, announcing the results of a smart incontinence care project at a nursing home that tested our Orizon Smart solution for several weeks.
Ministers of the Flemish government, Hilde Crevits and Jo Brouns, attended the session together with the care home group director to learn more about the Orizon Smart solution and discuss how the use of these technologies can significantly improve elderly care.
Some of the key results presented during this event related to the optimization of incontinence product consumption and cost, as well as the increase in comfort and quality of sleep of the residents. An accurate monitoring of the saturation level of these products means that it is not always needed to disturb the residents at night for a check.
By the end of the event, all participants and attendees were reassured of the importance of innovation in the care industry and the potential of the solutions like Orizon Smart.
