High risks. High costs.
By the numbers: why incontinence episodes need immediate attention.
53% of acute care patients are incontinent1.
This can lead to skin breakdown and a higher risk of falling for patients while contributing to significantly higher costs for medical facilities, including penalties for Hospital-Acquired Condition’s (HAC)’s and lawsuits. Quickly responding to incontinence episodes can greatly improve patient outcomes.

drysmart® improves patient lives because they are—
Safer. drysmart® pads and diapers are treated with MicrobeCare™ to help reduce the spread of germs such as C. diff and contact dermatitis, plus they decrease the risk and high costs of patient falls: a problem that has reached near-epidemic proportions. According to peer reviewed healthcare studies, more than half of all acute-facility patient falls are elimination related.
Smarter. drysmart® is part of Parasol’s Patient Falls Prevention System, the only falls prevention system designed to address incontinence. Each pad and diaper is engineered with moisture-sensitive conductive ink, sending an alarm via the Quick Connect System to the wired or wireless monitors or call systems.
Better. drysmart® incontinence monitoring pads and diapers provide:
Superabsorbent core draws in moisture and protects skin
Collects up to 1,200 ml of fluid without compromising core integrity
Superior Patient Comfort
Ultra-soft, breathable and feels dry to the touch in minutes
How it Works
The simple, Quick Connect System is triggered by removable clips that are simply snapped onto the pad. When a void is detected, the drysmart® advanced moisture sensing technology sends an alert to the caregiver or nursing station.
