Bedwetting (or Nocturnal Enuresis) is common in children and young people. Alarm Treatment is a common and effective method of training children and young people out of bedwetting.
The Welcare Stay-Dry Bedwetting Alarm resembles a child’s watch and operates as a bedwetting alarm which can be worn on either of the child’s arms. The alarm has two sensors which discreetly loop through the sleeve of the pyjamas, through to the underwear in order to detect any droplets of urine.
When the sensor reacts to wetness an alarm will sound – waking the child up to alert them that they need to use the toilet. The alarm will then stop to allow the child to use the toilet and return to sleep.
Using the Progress Chart (see ‘Instruction Manuals Tab’) you can track your child’s progress and introduce a reward scheme for positive continence behaviour to encourage the child to want to succeed.
Over time, the child will learn to associate the feeling of a full bladder with needing to wake up and go to the toilet, and others will learn to ‘hold on’ and will continue sleeping without releasing their bladder.
When the child remains dry for fourteen nights in a row, the bedwetting alarm is no longer needed. When the bedwetting alarm has not been used and the child still manages to keep dry, the training is considered successful.
The Welcare Stay-Dry Bedwetting Alarm is an advanced device that makes use of miniature electronics. The currents being used in the sensors to measure humidity are extremely low and therefore absolutely safe. The Trainer adheres to all required medical standards.
Suitable for boys & girls ages 5 years+. Read the enclosed instructions as directed to avoid strangulation risk. Not recommended for children under 5 years of age.
