Guest Lecture, Incontinence: The Engineering Challenge VIII, London

7th - 8th December 2011

Guest Lecture, Incontinence: The Engineering Challenge VIII

The Engineering in Medicine and Health Division is pleased to announce the eighth ‘Incontinence: The Engineering Challenge’ seminar. This taboo subject is often not discussed openly, preventing engineers from hearing about real-life issues endured by sufferers and problems faced by carers and nurses. It is essential that engineers develop new and existing technologies that can help limit embarrassment, disguise conditions and allow sufferers to live normal lives.

This two-day seminar is the principal European meeting in this area, and brings engineers, clinicians, researchers, commercial designers and producers, nurses, carers and users together, to examine existing solutions and solve current problems. As well as invited lectures featuring the very latest research and thinking, experts from outside the incontinence world will present technologies with the potential to revolutionise current practice.
