Title (EN) DISPOSABLE ABSORBENT ARTICLE SYSTEM EMPLOYING SENSOR FOR DETECTING NON-NUTRITIVE SUCKING EVENTS
(FR) SYSTEME D'ARTICLE ABSORBANT JETABLE METTANT EN OEUVRE UN CAPTEUR PERMETTANT DE DETECTER DES EVENEMENTS DE SUCCION NON NUTRITIVE
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed is a system, method, and device for detecting non-nutritive sucking events produced by an infant; patterns comprising such events (i.e., rhythmic sucking patterns, or RSPs); and relating said events and/or RSPs to performance of a disposable absorbent article worn by the infant. The frequency and/or amplitude and/or other characteristics of non-nutritive sucking changes in response to liquid insults introduced to a disposable absorbent article. Accordingly, changes to RSPs offer detectable and measurable indicia of an infant's perception of the performance of a disposable absorbent article. Furthermore, such information may be used to support and/or substantiate marketing communications to consumers, or to guide selection and/or management of research-and-development programs.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système, un procédé et un dispositif permettant de détecter des événements de succion non nutritive produits par un bébé; des modèles comprenant de tels événements (c'est-à-dire, des modèles de succion rythmique ou RSP); et la mise en relation des événements et/ou RSP avec les performances d'un article absorbant jetable porté par le bébé. La fréquence et/ou l'amplitude et/ou d'autres caractéristiques de la succion non nutritive change en réponse à des agressions par des liquides introduits dans un article absorbant jetable. Par conséquent, des changements de RSP présentent des indices détectables et mesurables de la perception du bébé des performances de l'article absorbant jetable. De plus, de telles informations peuvent être utilisées comme aide et corroboration à des communications de marketing pour des clients ou comme guide pour la sélection et/ou la gestion de programmes de recherche et développement.
