The most important thing to look for in a bedwetting alarm

by Karen Radford 1 min read

I am often asked by health care professionals and parents what is the most important feature of a bedwetting alarm? My answer is always- the sensor. The sensor is the part of the alarm that detects the urine and signals the alarm to wake the child.

A good sensor should have the features outlined in the table below. See how DRI Sleeper® Urosensors™ compare with the clip-on sensors which are standard in many other models.
