Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine how the use of automatic excretion disposal device (AEDD) affects a sleeping state. We measured a body movement (BM) during sleep with AEDD or with a disposable diaper. BM was evaluated with an actigraph. The amount of BM during sleep with AEDD was smaller than that observed during sleep with a disposable diaper. These results suggested that sleep state was influencedbyexcretion care and that the using of AEDD in the nighttime may contribute to the decrease in sleep interruption in a diaper user.
