A Wearable System to Solve Urinary Incontinence

Urinary Incontinence is a common, yet unpleasant problem for women, especially those who have had children.

We helped Lifesense create a system with a specially designed underwear, sensor, and mobile application that enables women to track progress throughout their exercise program.

The sensor device discreetly integrates into the underwear to track urine leakage.


We designed the sleekest possible waterproof sensor device that fits into the pocket in the underwear to track urine leakage. This enables women to monitor their progress over time via the mobile application.


The absorbent pad in the underwear has been specially designed with bamboo, and the lace is interwoven with an inductive thread that tracks leakage so the precise placement of the sensor within the pocket is not crucial.


There is no need for batteries because we designed a sleek little cradle charging unit for the sensor when it is not in use. 

Strengthening the pelvis through exercise…

Women can generally solve the issue by exercising their pelvic muscles over time but they rarely stay disciplined enough to reach their goal, mainly because it is too difficult to observe any progress over an extensive exercise program. Through the Lifesense application, they can now track progress and access a coaching system with instructional & inspirational exercise videos

We designed the mobile application that tracks progress and connects to the videos

We designed and developed (iOS & Android) a simple intuitive application that anyone can use.

  • The app shows women the numbers of leakage ‘events’ over different time periods, enabling women to see clear progress as they keep up their exercise program.
  • It also connects to the video library, in which they are provided with detailed guidance of the specific exercises they should practice. 
  • They can also manually input the drinks they consume in order to monitor correlations, because some drinks are more problematic than others.

No ordinary underwear…

Lifesense designed their own stylish underwear with an innovative absorbent solution using bamboo that provides extra comfort and negates unpleasant odours.

We conceived and designed the Lifesense branding. The brief was to create a really simple elegant brand for a female audience.

The logo was inspired by the combination of science, nature and the shape of the device

We combined simplicity of the brand with a striking colour palette

The brand forms the basis of a consistent look & feel visual across web and mobile
