The Stanford Center on Longevity Awards Stephen McAleavey, Ph.D. Grant to Study Incontinence Management

Stephen McAleavey (PI) was awarded a grant from the Stanford Center on Longevity for research on a Wireless Urine Monitor and Aids for Bladder Training and Incontinence Management. The goal of this project is to develop an assistive device for bladder training. The device, which incorporates a disposable sensor and wireless monitor, records the time of incontinence episodes. Urinary incontinence affects at least 10% of the age 65 or older population, and as many as 60% of those living in nursing homes.
