Staydry Incontinence Monitoring System

A simple radio controlled incontinence monitoring system which consists of a thin plastic reusable detector strip worn inside pants, disposable or cloth nappy and an alarm unit. The transmitter immediately detects the presence of urine as soon as a flow commences and sets off an audible alarm which wakes the child / adult. As soon as the user wakes, the urine flow ceases and prevents wetting the bed.

More Details

* The detector strip is connected to a coded signal radio transmitter which is activated when the detector strip comes in contact with urine or faeces
* The radio signal causes an alarm signal to be generated from the alarm unit which can be supplied with either audible, flashing light or vibratory alarm indicators
* The detector strips can be reused a number of times provided they are thoroughly washed as soon after being used as possible
* Not suitable for use in areas of high humidity unless air conditioning is used. The high humidity can cause false alarms
