Enuresis sensor

What is an enuresis sensor?

Enuresis is estimated to affect 15% of people over the age of 65 years, and is a problem which can cause considerable discomfort especially at night.

In many cases a carer will undertake regular checks throughout the night, which is labour intensive for paid carers and means broken sleep for informal carers.

The person affected may also find these checks intrusive and undignified.

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.

How does it work?

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 user’s sleep.

Who is it for?

Enuresis sensors can be used in individual homes or assisted living environments. They are portable and simple to use, supporting carers and protecting users.

Why is it needed?

Enuresis can result in skin damage as a result of prolonged exposure to urine.

Detecting and responding to instances of enuresis quickly helps to maintain the integrity of the skin, preventing breakdown, maceration, dermatitis and infection.
