Manufacturer's product description

The enuresis sensor detects involuntary urination or incontinence and raises an alert if moisture is detected. It reduces the need for intrusive and undignified checks by carers and can enable appropriate support to be provided quickly, reducing discomfort to individuals.

Enuresis sensors can be used in individual homes or within assisted living environments to support independent living. Enuresis affects approximately 15% of people over 65; in many cases a carer will undertake regular checks throughout the night, which can be labour intensive for paid carers and means broken sleep for informal carers. Individuals receiving care may also find these checks intrusive and undignified, so the sensors can provide peace of mind for older people or individuals who are immobile or have physical limitations.

An enuresis sensor provides a discreet and efficient means to detect instances of moisture in the bed the moment they occur, ensuring carers can respond quickly if they are needed, but otherwise do not disturb the userÂÂÂ's sleep. The sensors are portable and simple to use, designed to support carers and protect users. An enuresis sensor will automatically raise an alert with a carer if it detects moisture, enabling appropriate care be provided quickly, without the need for manual checks. Once a sensor detects moisture it will send a signal to a small interface module, positioned under a bed which sends a wireless communication to a Lifeline home unit or Telecare Overlay system to enable care to be delivered quickly.
