The DRI Sleeperå¨ Excel enuresis alarm works by having the unique, patented Urosensor placed inside the underwear or inside a minipad which is attached inside the underwear. The Urosensor is then plugged into the alarm unit. The alarm is triggered with the first drops of urine on the Urosensor to waken the user.
Over a period of weeks the user's brain is being trained by the alarm to wake more and more quickly to increasing bladder pressure. The result is that the user learns to wake spontaneously before wetting starts. Successful users then quickly progress to the normal mature pattern of mostly not needing to go to the bathroom at night.
