UTIs can be tricky to detect in someone living with dementia. The associated behaviour change is often confused as dementia itself.

That’s where Pixie Pads can help. They’re soft, absorbent pads that can be slipped into incontinence briefs twice a week. They contain a sensor embedded within the pad. When the sensor comes into contact with urine, it will detect infection-causing bacteria. The app can store the history of multiple scans so that a medical professional can understand the Urinary history in more detail. Hopefully assisting in the best, fastest diagnosis.

When the Pixie Pad is later removed from the underwear, a carer or family member then uses the Pixie App on their phone to scan the QR code on the pad. This sends all data (including whether or not the bacterial levels indicate an infection) to be reviewed by the family member or care team, and appropriate treatment can be provided if necessary.

About UTIs

Urinary tract infections (UTI) in people with dementia can sometimes cause complex and difficult symptoms, including pain, agitation, confusion and even hallucinations. Spotting when someone with dementia has developed a UTI can be tricky because they might not be able to tell you that they’re not feeling well. Many UTI symptoms in older people are often mistaken for a worsening of their dementia symptoms.

In fact, the best way to confirm the presence of a UTI is by taking a sample of urine, but collecting this in the traditional way is not easy, especially if the person with dementia doesn’t understand what you’re trying to do.
