Volunteers wanted to provide urine samples

1st September 2010

Researchers in Bristol are seeking volunteers to provide urine samples to help develop an odour detector.

The Bristol Urological Institute is testing the device, which alerts incontinence sufferers by changing colour when they have a problem. The detector is a small piece of plastic which can be worn on a watch, keyring or wallet, with the idea being that people using it are alerted to bouts of incontinence before anyone else notices. The project is part of the New Dynamics of Ageing programme which is funded by the five UK Research Councils.
