Valentijn van Ekris: "I’ve been working as a nurse for nearly 10 years and have a lot of experience with incontinence care. It struck me how much is wasted in incontinence materials and human resources. I believed it should be possible to provide more effective care and improve the quality of life of our patients at the same time.
Research at Zuyd university confirmed the potential of improvement and provided an evidence based context for continence care. I started surrounding myself with professionals in various areas and teamed up with a leading software company specialised in smart services. Due to the combination of specialities we were able to create a non intrusive system that integrates with all aspects of continence care."
