About the awards
The Bladder & Bowel UK Product Innovation Award recognises design-led solutions to the real needs of people with bladder and/or bowel issues. The award celebrates a product whose design takes into account proven patient needs, and which meets this need using patient-centred design, ultimately improving patient quality of life.
It will be judged by a panel including clinicians who specialise in bladder and/or bowel care, representatives from research and academia, and members of the public living with bladder and/or bowel issues.
The Bladder & Bowel UK Clinical Excellence Award is a celebration of outstanding bladder and/or bowel healthcare.
The award rewards the exceptional contribution of an individual, team or project working in the field of bladder and/or bowel health within the NHS or independent sector, by celebrating the demonstrable positive impact they have made to their patients or clients or the public.
Entrants may have used leadership, collaboration, innovation and/or novel approaches to engagement to improve access to care, health outcomes or quality of life for the public generally or to service users and their families.
The Bladder & Bowel UK Clinical Excellence Award is a platform for honouring success and sharing outstanding practice. The award will be judged by experts and clinicians who specialise in bladder and/or bowel care.
2023 Product Innovation Award winner
Ontex won the Bladder & Bowel UK Product Innovation Award for the Orizon SMART, a rechargeable sensor that attaches to smart continence products and notifies when a product needs changing. It’s an incontinence product with a printed sensor, transmitter clip and mobile & web application.
The Orizon SMART accurately reports product saturation level and leakage risk, alerting carers when to change the product – enabling individual support for residents.
The team received a media pack and the opportunity to present at Bladder & Bowel UK’s 2024 professional training symposia, taking place on 7th March at Bolton Arena.
