A less expensive pad type alarm than the Malem Bed-side with good basic features. Requires pressure and wetness to trigger alarm. Child must be positioned on top of pad when wetting occurs. If child moves around frequently while sleeping, a wearable bed wetting alarm that moves with them might be a better choice.
A selectable combination of sound and/or vibration OR a custom recordable message provides children with special needs a range of options to help stop wetting. A switch inside the battery compartment is pressed to record up to 10 seconds of sound. When the alarm is triggered, the sound will loop continuously until stopped. If you don't like your recording, just record another.
Families sometimes mention that they want a moisture-sensing device to detect sweating with hypoglycemic episodes or leaking from their family member’s feeding tube, IV line or other unattended liquid port. Most alarms will detect any fluid, not only urine. It’s most important to choose a device in which the sensor can be positioned exactly where you need it to be to detect the wetness most quickly.
You should experiment with the best placement for quick fluid detection and should continue to be attentive in high-risk situations. This serves as a back-up only and does not take the place of close monitoring.
