Abstract: front page image
(EN)Absorbent articles are disclosed that convey information to a user. In particular, the absorbent articles include an active graphic that comprises a machine readable code. The active graphic, for instance, may comprise a disappearing graphic, an appearing graphic, and/or a color-change graphic. The change in appearance of the graphic may occur once contacted with a suitable activation agent, such as urine. The machine readable code contained in the active graphic, once scanned by a suitable reader device, may convey information to a user related to the absorbent article.
(FR)L'invention concerne des articles absorbants qui transmettent des informations à un utilisateur. Les articles absorbants comprennent notamment une image active qui comprend un code lisible par machine. L'image active peut par exemple comprendre une image disparaissant, une image apparaissant et/ou une image à changement de couleur. Le changement d'apparence de l'image peut se produire une fois qu'elle entre en contact avec un agent d'activation approprié, comme de l'urine. Le code lisible par machine contenu dans l'image active, une fois balayé par un dispositif de lecture approprié, peut transmettre des informations à l'utilisateur concernant l'article absorbant.
