Henkel (Düsseldorf, Germany) has signed a joint marketing and development agreement with Smartz AG. This allows the partners to offer hygiene product manufacturers new, market-ready digital health products, enabled by printed electronics. The partnership brings together conductive inks from Henkel´s printed electronics portfolio with Smartz’ existing adult care Internet of Things (IoT) hardware and software solutions. Together, both companies are able to create smart hygiene products that can sense when a wearer needs to be changed or moved, supporting and unburdening medical personnel. With an ageing population and increasing demands for adult care, such solutions provide an effective way to offer improved performance that simplifies the tasks of caregivers. At the same time, it provides dependent people with a less intrusive service and further protection. For Henkel, this is a pillar in its growth strategy for the smart solutions and data-driven services market.
