The smart diaper serves purposeful to both new parents and senior citizens; designed to alert you when the diaper needs to be changed, this technology will make lives much easier.

Researchers at the University of Tokyo created the first ever flexible and disposable organic sensor. The sensor can be used within a diaper and it sends wireless alerts when it requires the diaper to be changed. The piece of technology that transfers the information has been printed on plastic film and because of its thin flexibility it reduces discomfort for wearers.

Although this was designed for infant wearers, this technology can also be used for senior citizens. This breakthrough technology can help prevent many illnesses in seniors who are affected through negligence or unhygienic routines. By sending wireless alerts, this will help to take the edge off of new parents and caregivers and provide babies and seniors with healthy lives and clean new diapers.
