Which bed wetting detector works the best?
All of the bedwetting alarms that we carry work well to detect wetness and then sound and/or vibrate to alert the user that wetting is happening. The way that wetness is sensed varies with the style of alarm. The Malem wearable alarms, the Malem wireless alarm and the WetStop3 alarm have a small sensor that is clipped to the outside of the underwear. The position of the sensor clip is important so that the first drop of urine is detected. If the sensor is placed too high or low, it takes a larger spot of urine before the sensor gets wet. Paying attention when attaching the sensor is easy to do.
The Rodger wireless alarm detects wetness through the built-in sensors in the specialized briefs. The built-in sensor extends from the mid front to the mid back of the underwear so any wetting in this area will quickly be detected.
The pad style alarms, such as the Malem Bedside or WetCall, feature pads that the child lies on to detect the moisture. The more quickly the urine comes in contact with the sensor pad, the more quickly the alarm will sound. A wetting episode when your child is sleeping on his stomach may trigger the alarm more quickly than one in which your child wets while sleeping on his back.
The wearable and wireless alarms detect moisture most quickly but all of the alarms do sound to provide an alert when wetting occurs. Over time, the brain-bladder connection develops so your child can wake up to go to the bathroom or hold it until morning.
