New Smart Underwear for incontinence pad users

We are looking for female volunteers over the age of 18 years, who wear a pad for urinary incontinence to test some new ‘Smart underwear’.

The underwear has been designed to help individuals manage their incontinence by alerting them if their pad has leaked.

Your participation would provide us with essential feedback on how the device worked for you and whether you found it helpful.
