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.
Only one model is available
* 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
* A dry state is usually achieved in children in 4-6 weeks
* The system is used as part of a continence monitoring programme. This consists of three key elements:-
* An enuresis / continence alarm and management programme
* Support from a trained consultant who maintains regular contact with the client's family
* Detailed analysis of the diet to look for variations in urine flow caused by various foods
* Before using a bed wetting alarm or urinary drainage products it is recommended that you seek advice from a continence health professional. Contact the the National Continence Helpline for further information (see Continence Foundation of Australia in price details for Helpline phone number).
