In-pad detection of UTIs
TENA U-test is an integrated in-pad detection aid for collecting and analysing urine. It’s a unique way of detecting UTIs in incontinent residents. No separate urine collection is needed. The in-pad solution has been successfully evaluated in a clinical trial and proven to improve resident well-being and working environment for carers.
Quick, non-intrusive and comfortable
TENA U-test is quick, non-intrusive and comfortable for the resident to wear. No separate urine collection is needed. Both urine collection and analysis take place while the test is in the pad. Painful catheterization is avoided and the resident is spared unnecessary suffering.
Integrates into regular pad-changing routines
TENA U-test is easily integrated into normal pad-changing routines. This gives carers less workload, improves efficiency and allows more time for more rewarding care.
Easy to use
1.) Apply TENA U-test face down into a clean pad directly after removing from packaging. 2.) Put on the pad as normal. Test results are available 15 minutes after urination. 3.) Follow normal pad changing routines. Remove TENA U-test from the pad at pad change. 4.) Read TENA U-test. Results are valid up to 24 hours.
Easy to interpret
Colour indicators clearly show the validity of the test and whether the urine is positive or negative for nitrite and leukocytes. The results are available 15 minutes after urination and valid up to 24 hours.
