We recently attended the Simon Foundation “Innovating for Continence: The Engineering Challenge, 2013”. This was held in Chicago and was a mix of healthcare, industry and academic professionals discussing ways to help people with incontinence issues. Ramsey Coote under the guidance of Dr Esther Apos, see in photo, put together a poster on the interim results of our research project and analysed 150 records. This poster won first prize. There were 40 posters in total and the results showed that the bell and pad system had an 87% success rate with an 11% relapse rate. The research will take an additional 12-18 months to complete and we plan to analyse approximately 3000 records which will provide evidence and education to help children become dry at night.
