Wet-Detective™ Sensor Pad dimensions are 34" x 34" (86.36cm x 86.36cm) and are made with poly/cotton quilted absorbent material with a waterproof backing. Machine washable and waterproof. Special sensing wires are stitched into the pad to maximize urine detection. The pads are easy to position directly underneath the person and on top of a bed or chair.
Simply place the pad on top of the surface where the person will sit or lie. snap the sensor cord to the pad, and plug the cord into the alarm unit. When urine or moisture is detected, the alarm will sound and a light will flash, alerting carers to the situation for a faster response and better health outcomes. Having a second pad makes cleanup a snap! Simply replace the soiled pad with a clean one and toss the soiled pad into the wash.
The pad system can be used for those who are suffering from incontinence for a multitude of reasons (physiological, medication-related, temporary, permanent), those who cannot toilet themselves, or even to help children overcome bedwetting. Learning to respond to the alarm will help train the child's brain-and-bladder connection so they learn to either get up to use the bathroom or hold their urine through the night.
The Wet Detector picks up the slightest bit of moisture and the alarm is incredibly loud. The pads are easy to throw in the wash and tumble dry quickly. These are good qualities when your kids pees the bed multiple times at night. I think for the right kid, this product will work perfectly. This is not the case for my very heavy sleeper who sweats in her sleep. I am giving this product a three star review because the pad is so sensitive that it sounds the alarm within minutes of my kid falling asleep because it picks up her body moisture. I have to put a thin blanket over the pad, along with a sheet folded it half, and force my daughter to use an Afghan blanket instead of her comforter. Even though the alarm sounds every 30-60 minutes as she begins sweating, she sleeps right through the alarm. It is incredibly loud, but it doesn’t wake her up. We’ve used this pad for a week now, and I haven’t slept through the night yet. Not only am I up twice a night to change the pad and blankets, I’m also up every hour turning of the alarm and waking her to switch out the pad because the alarm won’t shut off when it senses the sweat. This product is not ideal for heavy sleepers who sweat in their sleep.
The Wet Detective system vastly improved our lives. Instead of getting up every two hours to check on an incontinent patient, the caregivers and I were able to go into a deep sleep and still be called by the terrific alarm when there was a need. The alarm is very loud or soft depending on how you set it, and you can beef it up with a baby monitor, though we didn't need to. The pads are very sensitive, so you can adapt them to avoid sweat alarms by using a towel or sheets (folded to double, quadruple, whatever works), but you won't get liquid without setting off the alarm. We needed three or four pads since there was urine sometimes several times a night. The Wet Detective truly improved our lives, our sleep, and our health. I'm thinking of additional uses, such as warning when it's starting to rain or when someone is too hot and sweating....
