The DRI Excel Bed Wetting Alarm is a simple, easy to use enuresis alarm. A small battery operated alarm is attached to the shirt or pajama top and worn by your child to bed. A Urosensor (urine detector) is placed inside your child's underwear in a mini pad or sandwiched between two pair of underwear. The sensor can also be placed inside a pull-up worn by your child. The sensor is connected to the alarm unit on your child's shoulder by a small wire. When your child wets, the sensor detects the urine and the alarm emits a loud chirping noise to alert you and your child. Simply unplug the sensor to turn sound off.
The bedwetting alarm is attached to the child's top using the Velcro on the back of the alarm box. You may secure the alarm using a safety pin through the Velcro, or sewing one piece of the Velcro to the top.
The DRI Excel Urosensor is suitable to use in a pull-up or minipad. Simply cut a 1 inch slit on the inside of pad or the pull-up in the crotch area. Insert the point of the scissors into the slit, and moving the scissors from side to side, make a small tunnel into which you can insert the urine detector. To make sure that the Urosensor stays in place, it can be useful to tape across the slit once you have put the detector inside. The Velcro piece that secures the bedwetting alarm to the pajama shoulder can be pinned or sewn in place. The covering layer of some pullups and minipads are designed to keep the user dry, and if the Urosensor is placed just under that layer, it may not trigger. It is best to insert the Urosensor under the layers of the absorbent material so that they will become wet and press onto the Urosensor.
Alternative placement is to use underwear with double fabric in the front fly area. Cut a slit in the outside layer toward the crotch and insert the Urosensor inside with the black sensing strip facing the user. Note: Wrapping the Urosensor in a tissue before insertion can help the wetting to be detected more quickly. Another option is to wear two pairs of close fitting underwear and put the Urosensor, wrapped in a tissue or not wrapped, between the two pairs. (More extensive placement instructions)

Use this product with my elderly mother who is incontinent. Works great and alerts us when she needs changed. Would highly recommend.
I use this for an 8 year old who has Kidney disease. This alarm works great, and I would highly recommend this to any person that may not want to pay for the wireless alarm that was about $150. We are able to make a hole in his pullup, and insert the sensor to detect wetness. The only negative is that he is a very deep sleeper, but it wakes me up so I am able to get him up rather than it waking him up.
My seven-year-old son was potty trained very early. He's only issue was at night. When he is twin brother was able to be dry at night and he was not the doctor said he was not producing enough hormones that help him with this. We did everything that was recommended such as not drinking water after certain time, making him go to the bathroom before he went to bed, and waking him up periodically at night. Again, none of this seemed to work. When I purchased this he said he felt as though it made him more aware of his body. In less than a month he has been able to be dry for two whole weeks. We are going to try and go without it tonight.
Loved my expierience with the DriAlarm. My son was 9 and it was one he could use himself without me having to hook it up for him. We had to have him sleep in our room on a little mattress b/c we had a hard time getting to him fast enough...or hearing it loud enough. OVerall it has been a wonderful experience. He is very close to his 14 dry nights after only a month. Thanks so much!!!!
Works well if child is not in a deep sleep.
