Title
(EN) MONITORING DEVICE ATTACHABLE TO AN ABSORBENT ARTICLE, AND RESPECTIVE METHOD AND ABSORBENT ARTICLE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE SURVEILLANCE POUVANT ÊTRE FIXÉ À UN ARTICLE ABSORBANT, ET MÉTHODE ET ARTICLE ABSORBANT RESPECTIFS
Abstract
(EN) A monitoring device (10) attachable to an absorbent article (14) comprising a conductive pattern is provided. Said monitoring device (10) comprises at least two terminals (11a, 11b, 11c, 11d, 11e, 11f) contactable to the conductive pattern, and a processing unit (12) connected to the at least two terminals (11a, 11b, 11c, 11d, 11e, 11f). In this context, in the case that the monitoring device (10) is attached to the absorbent article (14) and the at least two terminals (11a, 11b, 11c, 11d, 11e, 11f) contact the conductive pattern at least partly, on the basis of the contact between at least a part of the at least two terminals (11a, 11b, 11c, 11d, 11e, 11f) and the conductive pattern. The processing unit (12) is configured to acquire information for verifying a proper attachment of the monitoring device (10) to the absorbent article (14) and/or for identifying a type of the absorbent article (14) and/or for determining a wetness and/or saturation status of the absorbent article (14).
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de surveillance (10) pouvant être fixé à un article absorbant (14) comprenant un motif conducteur. Ledit dispositif de surveillance (10) comprend au moins deux bornes (11a, 11b, 11c, 11d, 11e, 11f) pouvant être mises en contact avec le motif conducteur, et une unité de traitement (12) connectée aux deux bornes (11a, 11b, 11c, 11d, 11e, 11f) ou plus. Dans ce contexte, dans le cas où le dispositif de surveillance (10) est fixé à l'article absorbant (14) et les deux bornes (11a, 11b, 11c, 11d, 11e, 11f) ou plus entrent en contact au moins partiellement avec le motif conducteur, sur la base du contact entre au moins une partie des deux bornes (11a, 11b, 11c, 11d, 11e, 11f) ou plus et le motif conducteur. L'unité de traitement (12) est configurée pour acquérir des informations pour vérifier une fixation correcte du dispositif de surveillance (10) à l'article absorbant (14) et/ou pour identifier un type d'article absorbant (14) et/ou pour déterminer un état d'humidité et/ou de saturation de l'article absorbant (14).
