Title
(EN) INCONTINENCE CARE SYSTEM AND METHOD THEREFOR
Abstract
(EN)

A system and a method of detecting a voiding event of a care-receiver uses a temperature sensor for measuring temperatures in real-time at a location adjacent a lower portion of the care-receiver's torso where the voiding event is to occur. The system and method then determines the voiding event based on the measured temperatures.
