Abstract [en]

Together with Attends in Aneby a thesis of 15 ECTS (credits) have been undertaken. The assignment was to develop a new incontinence product for single use. Users of the product value comfort, flexibility, softness, comfort and a discreet product. Users are for individuals with incontinence problems that usually receive the products via prescription. The product must also have an attractive price and good quality from the purchase / originator's perspective.

Currently there are two models that Attends supplies, which the project intends to develop, (Slips / Briefs and Pull On's). The first has a low price but also lower usability than the other. The products have a well-developed absorptive function and with respect to this, only a new design of the chassis will be developed. Project issue were: How should a concept look like when combining Pull On's and Slips / Briefs? Is it possible to develop a better product?

Production methods, costs and customer satisfaction will not be taken into account given that incontinence is a sensitive topic and that it would make the task too extensive. Consideration of patents, industrial designs and design protection are not taken into account when over two hundred applications per month are registered.   The mission was carried out as a development project where the product is broken down into parts which are then developed and combined to form a new developed product. Tools that were used are brainstorming and morphological matrix. This project resulted in a concept that can be described as a hybrid of today's two products. With two parts of elastic material in the waist, the product will gain a better fit for the user. It also creates a wider span between the maximum and minimum waistline each size will cover. The final product also has an adjustment function to increase the user friendliness and comfort. With the help of adjustment so you can change the pressure against the body, making the user able to customize the product. A continuation of the project is to examine whether new materials can be inserted into the device instead of the elastic composite. It is important that further development of the product is made together with a test group to gain answers about ease of use and other problems that can arise in everyday use. A continuation should also involve interviewing healthcare professionals who come into contact with the product.
