RESTORING DIGNITY THRU PRO-ACTIVE CARE
Incontinence Should Not Be A Shameful Act
What is DignityAlert™ ?
DignityAlert™ patent number 9.633,540, alerts caregivers/owners when their charges have to go to the bathroom.
In the US alone, over 18 million people suffer from bowel incontinence -- the inability to control one’s bowels. It’s an issue that affects their social life and quality of life because they’re constantly worried that if they go out to a social event, they may have an embarrassing accident. Embarrassing is putting it mildly. They’re usually mortified. As a result, they often choose to just stay home, which significantly affects their relationships with friends and family.
Bowel incontinence affects males and females of all ages and can be caused from tears during childbirth, rectal surgery, or nerve damage to name just a few.
Until recently, there were no good solutions. Introducing, DignityAlert -- a patented defecation alert system that identifies an imminent defecation. And it can be used in both humans and animals.
Simply ingest the tiny, FDA approved, sensor tracer with food. The sensor will transmit real-time location information to smart-patch wore on the body like a band aid . When the sensor reaches a critical location within the rectum, the smart-patch communicates with a mobile phone, console, or remote monitor alerting the person or his or her family or caregiver that it’s time to defecate. This can help parents potty train their children and elderly care facilities prevent an accident before it happens. And in the case of animals, it helps pet owners, veterinarians, and caretakers identify when the pet needs to poop -- making potty training more effective.
With all these potential customers, DignityAlert can help solve a problem affecting over a billion people. And DignityAlert is the only defecation alert system in the entire world that can accurately predict an impending defecation.
How does DignityAlert™ Works?
DignityAlert™ has two components; a tiny (the size of a grain of sand) tracer/tag which is ingested with food and a reader device which transmits a radio signal which interrogates the tracer/tag.
After ingestion, when the tracer reaches the rectum area, it will start responding to the reader’s signal.
Once the reader receives the response-signal from the tracer, it will in turn send an alert to a smartphone or other devices alerting the caregiver that the subject is about to have a bowel movement.
