Sensor for DRI Sleeper Excel

Our Urosensor™ goes right inside the underpants which is the best position for instant detection of urine leakage and it has sensing strips on both sides for maximum exposure to wetness. There are no metal contacts so it won’t corrode or deteriorate in urine.

The Urosensor™ measures 40 x 20 x 3mm (1.6 x 0.7 x 0.2 inches), long enough and wide enough for the first drops of urine to trigger the alarm every time. The cord measures 85cm (33 inches) so it can be worn by older and taller children.

The Urosensor™ is a consumable item just like earphones for an iPod or mobile phone. With reasonable care the Urosensor™ will last for many years. However, it will need replacing from time to time. Because the Urosensor™ is used by a child the exact life of the Urosensor™ is hard to predict. So, just as people often have a spare earphones on hand, our advice is that a spare Urosensor™ is a good idea too.

Safety electronics

The DRI Sleeper® Excel is powered by 4 x 1.5V batteries so it uses only a tiny current. With just a few microamps passing through the Urosensor™ for less than a second you can put the Urosensor™ on your tongue and trigger the alarm but you will feel nothing.  Furthermore, most wired alarms have a current passing through the sensor the whole time the alarm is beeping which can cause the urine to become acidic and irritate sensitive skin. With the DRI Sleeper® excel Urosensor™ once the alarm triggers, the safety electronics isolate it and no more current passes through the Urosensor ™. This means no risk of irritation to your child’s sensitive skin.

Care and cleaning of the DRI Sleeper® excel Urosensor™

The DRI Sleeper® excel Urosensor™ should be rinsed in warm soapy water and dried thoroughly before re-use. Do not use cleaners which are chlorine based or put the Urosensor™ in the washing machine or dryer as this will irreparably damage the sensing strips.

When not in use the Urosensor™ should be unplugged from the alarm to save battery power and stored safely with the alarm unit.

We suggest ditching the diapers as they can remove the feeling of wetness which may interfere with the learning process. If you need the diapers to reduce the stress or mess, then go for it.

Children may eventually learn not to wet the bed on their own. If you think about it, you taught them not to wet themselves during the day – why would you not teach them to not wet during the night?

Many children have low levels of the hormones that regulate urine production at night, but DON’T wet the bed. If hormones are an issue then your doctor may prescribe medication to use along with the alarm.

Yes, you can use our strategies for deep sleepers to help them sleep learn to sleep dry. Remember MANY children are deep sleepers and don’t wet the bed.
