A Dane grad student’s project may yield benefits for incontinence sufferers everywhere. If you’re not sure when it’s time to go, Marie Danel’s Uturn will tell you:
The product is intended for the 400,000 Danes suffering from incontinence. Uturn uses ultrasound and Bluetooth technology to carry out a diagnosis and alert the wearer when the bladder is full – without the pain and discomfort that accompany many existing methods.
We’re not sure how the bluetooth merges with the ultrasound — although we’re intrigued by the idea of our bladders text-messaging our cell phones.
