Connectivity and Disposable Hygiene: Challenges to “Smart Diaper” Adoption

For adults, these products are marketed towards healthcare providers and professional caretakers and meant to help detect early health issues. For babies and parents, smart disposable hygiene products can detect when a baby needs a change and can help monitor sleep patterns. This technology comes at a price that may turn away all but upper class parents, however.
