Current incontinence care systems bring along many burdens for patients and care givers. Bjorn Van Keymeulen is working on a new system developed with state-of-the-art technology which guarantees a higher quality of incontinence care. This system optimizes incontinence care by providing more privacy and comfort to the patient and reducing the ecological footprint.

Bjorn is the 3rd place winner of this year’s TEDxGhent PhD/post-doc Contest. In 2012 he started his PhD at the Centre for Microsystems and Technology where he works on the integration of electronics into textiles for which he holds several patents and/or patent applications.
