SIMsystem Reports Incontinence to Caregivers

An Australian company has introduced SIMsystem, a patented medical device system that monitors urinary output using ZigBee low-power wireless digital radio to deliver data to a central station. An embedded sensor in the SIMpad slips into an individual's SIMpants--stretchy underwear--and sends signals via the SIMbox transmitter to the SIMnetwork running SIMsystem Manager software on a SIMserver dedicated computer.

Whoa!

The bottom line to the tattletale underpants is drier bottoms for the incontinent and a more efficient system for care providers.
