Pardon me for feeling a little jet-lagged. Last week, I had the opportunity to visit the manufacturer of the Rodger wireless alarm in Denekamp, Netherlands. After a tour of the facility, we had a chance to discuss the success of the wireless alarm and feedback from our customers. This wireless alarm is particularly well suited for those kids who do not want an alarm unit to be situated on their shoulder and those who do not want a thin cord running under their shirt. Practically speaking, the Rodger wireless alarm is very simple to hook up before bed. The user simply puts on the specialized briefs, makes sure the transmitter is snapped to the waistband and goes to bed. The receiver is left plugged into a wall outlet. Once moisture is sensed, the receiver sounds an alarm.
The newest features of the Rodger alarm include the ability to select one of 8 sounds and the ability to get an alarm with dual receivers, one for the child and one for the parent. This is a nice feature, especially for families who are worried that they will not be able to hear the alarm and assist their child during the night. The specialized briefs are machine washed and dried. Two briefs come with the alarm, additional ones can be purchased separately. Many of my older patients have had great success using this style of bedwetting alarm.
