Research on use of Smart Water Bottles in Care Homes


LOTI commissioned research to inform a specific pilot being proposed by boroughs on the use of smart water bottles (those which include a mechanism to remind users to drink) to improve hydration and help reduce hospital admissions of care home residents. A 2018 study showed that 20% of older people living in UK care homes were dehydrated.

This summary report provides the findings of web research conducted in October 2020 as part of LOTI’s work on the use of Assistive Technology.
