Types of Bedwetting Alarms
Wearable Bedwetting Alarms
A wearable bedwetting alarm typically has a moisture sensitive sensor that is placed outside of the child’s underwear and secured with a tape or clipped to the underwear. When the child begins to wet during sleep, the sensor triggers the alarm to go off. (The alarm is often coupled with both vibrations and sounds, for the most efficacies.) The alarm alerts the child to wake up and finish urinating in the restroom to finish urinating in the toilet.
Wearable bedwetting alarms have a number of advantages and are generally preferred by children ages 4 – 12. Since these alarms are places at the pajama top, they tend to wake deep sleepers more easily. Since the urine detecting sensor is placed just outside the underwear, these alarms detect urine faster than bedside alarms and may wake up a child sooner.
At One Stop Bedwetting, we carry a large variety of wearable bedwetting alarms for you to chose from. Our favorite wearable bedwetting alarms come from the Chummie bedwetting alarm family. These award winning bedwetting alarms are doctor recommended to stop bedwetting in children and deep sleepers in weeks. Wearable Chummie bedwetting alarms are the Chummie Premium and the Chumie Elite bedwetting alarms. Other highly rated and top selling wearable bedwetting alarms include the all new Shield bedwetting alarm family which includes the multi tone Shield Max bedwetting alarm and the single tone Shield Prime bedwetting alarm and the all new Smart bedwetting alarm.
Bedside bedwetting alarm use a moisture sensitive mat or pad that is connected to beside alarm. Instead of the sensor being connected to the underwear, the user sleeps on a mat that detects urine when bedwetting occurs. The mat triggers the alarm that beeps and vibrates to wake up the user. Some alarms such as the Chummie Bedwetting Alarms offer light alerts as well to wake up the user and offer enhanced visibility in dark areas.
We recommend bedside bedwetting alarms for teens and adults. Bedside bedwetting alarms offer unparalleled comfort compared to wearable alarms. These alarms are placed on the table-top and the user can freely move in bed without any wires connected on their clothing.
