Bedwetting Solutions UK are very excited to be the first company in the UK to offer the hire of Ramsey Coote bedwetting alarms.
After years of field testing many of the alarms available to the market, we now rely solely on Ramsey Coote alarms, which are designed and built in Australia but comply fully with UK safety standards. Ramsey Coote Instruments Alarm Systems have been researching Paediatric Nocturnal Enuresis since 1956. Their alarms are medical grade and are generally recognised as achieving some of the best results in the world and are used by the National Health services of both Australia and New Zealand.
Independent medical studies have shown that Ramsey Coote alarms generally achieve an 87% success rate over a 6-8 week period. However, training can sometimes take a little longer depending on the child and in a very few cases this form of treatment may not prove successful.
We always stress the worth of visiting your GP or obtaining a referral to your local hospital's Enuresis Department, before commencing the alarm training to ensure that there are no underlying health issues.
The alarm is supplied along with a comfortable, rubberised mat for your child to sleep on, over which a thin bedsheet is placed. The mat is plugged into the pre-charged, battery powered alarm at which stage a test can be made using a paper clip as per instructions.
Ramsey Coote alarms are sophisticated units with a great degree of sensitivity and as soon as your child starts to urinate the alarm will sound, waking them up. They are then required to get out of bed to turn the alarm off and go to the toilet to empty their bladder. (It is this repeated process which trains the child's brain to learn to register bladder pressure and to act on it).
The mat must then be dried, a clean dry sheet replaced and the alarm reset before the child returns to their bed. Gradually, over the following nights, the child should wake more quickly and stem the flow of urine earlier each time until completely dry nights are achieved.
The alarm is charged, via the mains, during one whole day per week (unless your child is taking more than 5 minutes a night to wake up). The unit is driven purely by battery power whilst in use and so remains perfectly safe for your child to use.
