Remarkably user friendly, lightweight, just as compact as a watch and can be worn on the left or on the right wrist. During training you can remain using the childs regular underwear, there is no need for special material.
Your child is certainly not the only one! A child's toilet training develops during the first years of life when children start to become aware of the urge to urinate. The child must still learn to hold up their urine at night or waking up to the sensation of a full bladder. When a child still wets their bed beyond the age of pre-school and there is no medical reason to justify this, the child suffers from bedwetting.
Training using a bedwetting alarm
A bedwetting alarm teaches the child to wake up to the sensation of a full bladder. The alarm immediately sounds an alarm tone when the child loses a few drops of urine. The alarm will then be switched off and the child can finish urinating on the toilet. Through this therapy, the child learns to associate the sensation of a full bladder with having to wake up.
How will this proceed?
In time the child will wake up on its own without having to depend on the alarm tone. When the child remains dry for fourteen nights in a row, the bedwetting alarm is not needed anymore. Even when the bedwetting alarm has not been used and the child still manages to keep dry, the training is considered successful and the child is toilet trained.
Will my insurance agency cover the costs?
A bedwetting alarm will be covered by your health insurance agency either in part or completely, depending on your insurance policy. In order to qualify for this, you need a written explanation from your treating physician or GP.
The Noppy bedwetting alarm
Especially user friendly, lightweight and just as compact as a watch. It can be worn on either the left or right wrist and the child's own underwear can be used during this training.
How does the Noppy bedwetting alarm work?
The bedwetting alarm is attached to the child's wrist. The alarm's cable is then "clicked" into the child's underwear on the spot where the urine will reach the cloth first. When the cloth between two sensors becomes wet, they will react and cause the bedwetting alarm to sound off an alarm tone, waking up the child.
It is important that the user of the alarm (the child) is motivated to conjure up the discipline needed to work with this method. One could increase the childs motivation by going at this training in a playful manner by using the supplied covers for the alarm. These come in the shape of a bear, a butterfly and a ladybug. You can also use the reward system on our website.
