Sensor pad placed between the bedding and mattress detects excess amounts of moisture. If this occurs, an emergency alarm can be transmitted.
The sensor pad is placed between your sheet and your mattress. Ideally the sensor should be placed underneath a cotton top sheet and on top of any protective waterproof sheet. The shiny side of the sensor should be uppermost and the sensor should be placed where bed wetting is most likely to occur.
One example of use would be to set up a telecare system so that if the incontinence sensor detected excess moisture in your bed it triggered a pillow alert, waking you and you could then change the bedding independently.
Alternatively the incontinence sensor could be set up to alert your carer via a pager if excess moisture is detected. Thus the sensor can reduce the need for carers to make physical checks, reducing disturbance to you and promoting privacy.
