Smardii’s technology includes disposable sensors that are embedded within an adult diaper, and a reusable, rechargeable, waterproof disk called the Puck. The smart system detects urine and stool and checks body temperature, body positioning and runs a real-time urinalysis. In an acute care or nursing home environment, the medical staff and caregivers receive timely alerts on the Smardii dashboard and through the mobile app. Within a private home setting, the Smardii app is also used for monitoring.
Through this product, Smardii is crafting the future of adult and elder care while providing valuable information for preventive care, dignity of care and improved health.
Researchers have been developing Smardii since 2016 and developed several prototypes before receving a U.S. patent in October 2017 and an international patent in September 2018. In November 2018, Smardii formed it first partnerships with three healthcare facilities in France and has more recently extended its scope with agreements in Italy and the northeast U.S.
