Auditory accommodation occurs when someone gets used to the same sound. This might mean that they start to subconsciously ignore the sound, reducing the likelihood that they will wake up when the sound is played. To prevent this, an 8-tone alarm can be used (see "8-Tone").
The most popular Malem bedwetting sensor is the Malem™ Easy-Clip© Sensor. This unique and innovative design clips comfortably onto the outside of any pair of underpants, ensuring that a child is comfortable when wearing their bedwetting alarm. The Easy-Clip© Sensor is designed to remain securely in place, enabling a child to move around in their sleep, without the need for sewing a sensor in place or using sticky tape, sanitary pads or 2 pairs of underwear. The Easy-Clip© Sensor quickly detects moisture, and triggers the attached alarm. The Easy-Clip© Sensor is compatible with ALL Malem Wearable alarms.
A recordable alarm allows you to record your own voice message or piece of music. This recorded message will play as soon as the alarm is activated.
A selectable alarm allows you to choose the sound that is played when the alarm is activated. Either the same sound can be chosen to play each time the alarm is activated, or a different sound can play each time. There are 8 different alarm sounds to choose from.
A single tone alarm plays the same alarm sound each time it is activated.
The Malem™ Standard Sensor is the original Malem sensor. This is a flat plate, which sits either between 2 pairs of underwear or can be sandwiched between a sanitary pad. The sensor is held securely in place with the attached crocodile clip. The Standard Sensor quickly detects moisture, and triggers the attached alarm. The Standard Sensor is compatible with ALL Malem Wearable alarms.
An 8-tone alarm has 8 different alarm sounds and plays a different sound each time the alarm is triggered. This helps to prevent auditory accommodation.
