Children love these brightly colored and well-designed bedwetting alarms from Malem. A small, ultra lightweight alarm is comfortably worn on the nightwear close to the shoulder. It weighs less than one ounce including batteries and even glows when sounding!
The bedwetting alarm is connected to a clip-on moisture sensor which anchors to the outside of any close fitting underwear for boys or girls. There’s no sewing to hassle with or metal clips or snaps to come undone during the night. NO mini-pads to buy and attach each night! Sensor contacts are within the clip so skin contact or sweating will not trigger the alarm.
Malem alarms are well constructed and durable with sounds that wake children. Alarms are available with a single tone (red) or 8 separate tones (yellow) to prevent "audio accommodation," getting used to one sound and tuning it out. A different non-selectable tone is activated each time the alarm is triggered on the yellow alarm. The alarm sounds continuously until the sensor is removed, allowing you or your child sufficient time to effectively respond to the alarm.
Included with every alarm are: instructions for use, charts to track progress and an extra set of batteries. The unit uses 3 alkaline "button" style batteries (Eveready A76).
If you asked your child which bedwetting alarm they would choose, this would be it! Kids love the "cool" colors and design, and parents love the Easy-Clip sensor that children can easily clip onto the underwear themselves. The small size of this Malem alarm makes it great for children less than eight years old. A common question from parents is whether a single tone or 8 tone alarm work "better." Since there is no research to support the selection of one type over another, the choice is a personal one. While pure behaviorists would recommend a single tone alarm, some families whose children seem to quickly "tune out" sounds might have better results by choosing a random tone alarm. Both alarms work well in alerting the child and family that they need to get up to go to the bathroom.
