Patients in long-term care facilities often suffer from incontinence. Elderly people are burdened physically and mentally, but so are caretakers, who have to deal with an increased task. In order to alleviate the burden of caring for someone with incontinence, there are a variety of technological solutions available. Because of this, these systems are too expensive. Residents of nursing homes complain about the inconvenience of these facilities. To find a solution to address these issues, we've developed an attached sensor a mattress equipped with incontinence detection and monitoring technology events. Bluetooth Low Energy and Influx DB were used to create a prototype. Using the sensor data, may be accessed by other systems in real-time so that it may be put through even more checks. There will be more safeguards in the future energy measurements and other components may be used to create the system is completely relocatable.
