A bedwetting alarm for kids includes a wearable sensor that supports potty training and teaches your child to wake up when they start to wet the bed, before fully emptying their bladder.

This way they can stop wearing diapers, pull ups or other solutions that simply ‘manage’ the problem. The way it works is, a small moisture sensor is attached to the pyjama or undergarment. When this detects moisture, it sets an alarm of that wakes the child up to go to the toilet. They finish the business and back to bed. Voila! It can be that simple.

TRAIN THE BRAIN

A bedwetting app helps train the brain. After waking up several times, a pattern begins to form in the brain. This bedwetting pattern teaches children to recognize the bladder signals and make it to the toilet on time, training the brain to ‘beat the buzzer’. A natural and long-term bedwetting solution using no medication.
