The DRI Eclipse wireless bed wetting alarm system is an easy-to-use alarm that works without wires. A small battery operated Urosensor is worn by your child to bed. When your child wets, the sensor detects the urine and transmits a signal to a small receiver that emits a loud chirping noise to alert you and your child. The Urosensor (urine detector) can be used with a mini pad, diaper or sandwiched between two pairs of underwear. Simply cut a slit in the mini pad or diaper and slide the Urosensor in place.
The bedwetting alarm's receiver is placed on a table or night stand so your child must get up and get out of bed to switch the sound off. The alarm emits a loud chirping sound from the receiver. The volume can be adjusted from inside the battery compartment. An on/off switch on the side of the receiver allows you to control the unit.
The wireless Urosensor should not need replacing because it has no moving parts and is fully sealed, eliminating the risk of urine getting inside. The internal battery will last two to three years. However, it may be damaged if it is put through the washer and dryer (the static electricity of the dryer can cause damage) so make sure it has been removed from the underwear before washing.
The DRI Eclipse Urosensor is suitable to use in a diaper or minipad. Simply cut a 1 inch slit on the inside of pad or the diaper in the crotch area. Insert the point of the scissors into the slit, and moving the scissors from side to side, make a small tunnel into which you can insert the detector. To make sure that the Urosensor stays in place, it can be useful to tape across the slit once you have put the detector inside. The Velcro piece that secures the bedwetting alarm to the pajama shoulder can be pinned or sewn in place. The covering layer of some diapers and mini pads are designed to keep the user dry, and if the Urosensor is placed just under that layer, it may not trigger. It is best to insert the Urosensor under the layers of the absorbent material so that they will become wet and press onto the Urosensor.
Alternative placement is to use underwear with double fabric in the front fly area. Cut a slit in the outside layer toward the crotch and insert the Urosensor inside with the black sensing strip facing the user. Note: Wrapping the Urosensor in a tissue before insertion can help the wetting to be detected more quickly. Another option is to wear two pairs of close fitting underwear and put the Urosensor, wrapped in a tissue or not wrapped, between the two pairs.
