Children love these brightly colored and well-designed bed wetting alarms from Malem. A small, ultra lightweight alarm is comfortably worn on the nightwear close to the shoulder. It weighs less than one ounce including batteries and even glows when sounding!
The bedwetting alarm is connected to a clip-on moisture sensor which anchors to the outside of any close fitting underwear for boys or girls. Sensor contacts are within the clip so skin contact or sweating will not trigger the alarm.
Malem alarms are well constructed and durable, with sounds that wake children. Available with a single tone (red) or 8 separate tones (yellow) to prevent "audio accommodation" - getting used to one sound and tuning it out. A different non-selectable tone is activated each time the alarm is triggered on the yellow alarm. The alarm sounds continuously until the sensor is removed, allowing you or your child sufficient time to effectively respond to the alarm.
Included with every Malem Bedwetting Alarm are instructions for use, charts to track progress and one set of batteries. Uses 3 alkaline "button" style batteries per set (Eveready A76).
If you asked your child which bed wetting alarm they would choose, this would be it! Kid's love the "cool" colors and design, and parents love the Easy-Clip sensor that children can easily clip onto the underwear themselves. This very small alarm is great for children less than eight.
Parents often ask if a single tone or 8 tone alarm work "better" to cure enuresis. Since there is no research to support the selection of one type over another, the choice is a personal one. Pure behaviorists would recommend a single tone bedwetting alarm, while families whose children seem to "tune out" sounds quickly might choose a random tone alarm. Both alarms work well in alerting the child and family that they need to get up to go to the bathroom.
This Malem alarm takes 3 A76 Batteries that last for approximately one hour of sounding time. Extra batteries (set of 3) can be purchased for $6.00 here.
