Each year 850,000 older adults are diagnosed with a UTI in the emergency room.
That's why we created Pixie Smart Pads.
Our disposable pads fit into a brief or pull-up, and contain a sensor that monitors for signs of infection.
How It Works
What are Pixie Smart Pads?
Pixie Smart Pads are disposable incontinence pads that use a biosensor to detect possible signs of a UTI. They work in conjunction with Pixie's smartphone app.
How does it work?
The process is simple. A Pixie Smart Pad is placed in an incontinence undergarment two to three times a week. After it's been used, it is scanned with the Pixie app. Results are sent to a medical professional who will contact you if there's a risk of infection.
Why did we create Pixie Smart Pads?
We know how hard it is to care for someone who suffers from UTIs, so we designed a product that can help detect infections from the comfort of home. Through early detection, we hope to keep people healthy and out of the hospital, and relieve caregiver burden.
Do I need a smartphone?
You'll need an iPhone 6. If you don't have one, we will send you one.
Can I use Pixie Smart Pads for myself?
Yes, as long as you wear incontinence undergarments all the time!
What's the cost?
Pixie is $59 per month, which includes two pads per week and a scanner (if needed).
