Enuresis is the medical term for involuntary bedwetting. Bedwetting is fairly common among children and is often just a stage in their development. It can also develop in old age as part of a general incontinence problem. Bedwetting solutions range from behavioural-based options such as bedwetting alarms, also known as enuresis alarms, to medication. As a first line option, a bedwetting alarm works by waking an individual who begins to wet the bed.

There are various types but all bedwetting alarms include a sensor to detect excess moisture which then sounds an alarm bell or emits strong vibrations. The sensors in these bedwetting devices are usually so sensitive that they are triggered as soon as the individual starts to pass urine. This wakes them and encourages them, if possible, to visit the toilet. Repeating this process with a bedwetting alarm over time results in conditioning the individual to wake when the bladder is full.

According to the National Kidney Foundation, 50% to 70% of cases of enuresis respond to treatment with these bedwetting devices. It can take many weeks for the body to unlearn something it has done for years. People who sleep very deeply may need to rely on a parent or other family member to wake them up if they don't hear the bedwetting alarm. The key to bedwetting alarms is waking up quickly — the sooner a person wakes up, the more effective the behaviour modification. By providing an early warning system, bedwetting solutions like these will result in a more comfortable night for users and their family or carers.

Representing a very modest investment, the bedwetting alarm can mean a speedy return to proper sleep and a sharp reduction in home laundry. Bedwetting alarms form part of Alvolution’s range of night time bedwetting solutions.
