What is the bed-wetting alarm?
The wireless bed-wetting alarm system is an easy and effective medical device to solve a bed-wetting issue.
A few months ago we purchased a Rodger bed wetting system for our 9 year old son, who was regularly wetting the bed.
We knew that the system can take several months to work, so were surprised and delighted to find that it worked so much quicker for us!
We had the system with alarm and vibration unit. The first few days we had the alarm going off in the early hours, so we could take our son to the bathroom. By day three he was still setting the alarm off but he was more in control. Within a week he was going through the night without an alarm activation. He continued with the system for 12 weeks, but never had an accident during that time, and hasn’t since.
We are delighted, as is our son, who can now have stop overs at his friends without embarrassment, and his confidence has grown so much. We also have a lot less washing of bedding than we did!
A great product that has helped our son so much. Thank you.

How does it work?
Your child wears the special Rodger sensor pant containing invisible wires. The receiver should either be placed in the power socket, or can be used easily powered by 2 x AA batteries (holidays, camping). Do not use both electricity through the power socket and batteries at the same time.
The tiny transmitter has to be connected to the special sensor pant through 2 press studs, which makes the detection of a single drop of urine possible. When the transmitter has been triggered by detecting urine, the receiver will keep on beeping until the reset button is pressed. Then the alarm switches off and it is reset again.
This model is equipped with 8 different alarm tones. The user can select either 1 preferred tone or can let the system randomly provide one of the available tones. Statistics prove that an alarm with different tones has more positive influences to the treatment. After a while the child wakes automatically from a full bladder.

Frequently Asked Questions
What age is the Rodger Wireless Nocturnal Enuresis Alarm Intended For?
The Rodger bed wetting alarm is perfectly suited for use by children from the age of 5 (this being the age at which it is expected that a Child no longer wets the bed) through to and including Adulthood.
Is the Rodger Wireless Bed Wetting Alarm safe?
YES! – The Rodger Wireless Bedwetting Alarm transmitter uses a small 3v CR2032 button cell battery (like a key-fob battery) that supplies only a very low current and even if the transmitter does get moisture on it, will remain safe.
How does the alarm turn off?
The small transmitter attaches to the special pants via 2 press studs so that it is ready to detect urine. When the transmitter has been triggered by the moisture, the receiver will continue to sound until the transmitter has been removed from the wet underwear and the reset button on the receiver has been pressed. This switches the alarm off and also resets it again.
What kind of power does the Rodger Wireless Bedwetting Alarm use?
The battery in the transmitter is 1 x 3 volt (supplied). The power for the Receiver is either mains via UK Plug, or if preferred and especially useful for holidays i.e. camping, this can alternatively be powered by 2 x AAA batteries.
How are the Special Sensor Pants washed?
The underwear are fully re-useable, made from cotton and can be Machine Washed at 60 degrees and Tumble Dried.
How long does treatment take with The Rodger Wireless Bedwetting System?
Typically treatment takes 3 to 6 weeks, but as with the treatment of any condition there is a great deal of variability. e.g., some children will respond and be finished with treatment within a week, a larger group take 3-6 weeks and a small group takes longer.
Is The Rodger Wireless Bed Wetting Alarm suitable for use by a deaf or hard of hearing child?
YES! – For children who are deaf or hard of hearing, a vibration cushion is available to order – please call us if you wish to discuss or order this accessory.
The Underpants are not as sensitive as they were originally. One has stopped sensing moisture completely – although the alarm works fine. What is wrong?
Over time, residue may build up on the sensor contacts inside the brief and reduce the ability to quickly detect moisture or cause it to stop sounding. This may be due to your water, detergent or urine – or a combination of these. The same issue occurs with other alarms too. You simply need to soak the sensor pants in vinegar or OxyClean solution to restore their sensitivity. Follow the steps below:
- Fill a bowl with approximately 3 cups of warm water
- Add either 1 cup of vinegar or 1/2 cup of OxyClean
- Place brief(s) in the solution and let sit for 1 hour
- Remove briefs from solution and launder and dry. Do Not Wring Dry.
Remove transmitter from briefs. Machine wash briefs in warm water. Do not use fabric softener. Tumble dry on low heat or air dry. DO NOT WRING. DO NOT WASH TRANSMITTER. Wipe transmitter clean with damp cloth and air dry.

Hints and Tips
Hints & Tips to help cure Bed Wetting with The Rodger Wireless Bedwetting Alarm
- When beginning with the treatment, be motivated, relaxed and confident
- Do not make a game out of the treatment. This will cause stress, and it is counterproductive
- Never punish your child; your child is not responsible for occasional accidents
- Do not wake your child at night to go to the toilet
- Give your child an occasional reward. A small present is a nice positive reinforcement that your child is doing well.
- We strongly suggest that you use the Rodger app to motivate your child.
- Do not start the treatment if important events will soon take place, i.e. moving house or the birth of a new baby
- Leave a small light on; this will keep your child from sleeping too deeply
- Do not let the temperature of your child’s bed get too warm, as this will put your child into a deeper sleep
- Do not stop your child from drinking before going to bed. Drinking less does not decrease the likelihood of bedwetting. However, it is preferable that your child does not drink coffee, tea, carbonated drinks or chocolate before going to bed
If your child’s bed wetting condition does not improve within 4 months, speak with your Doctor, as there might be a medical problem
The Rodger Wireless bedwetting Alarm are suitable for children over the age of 5 years. Most children stop bed wetting when they are 5. Beyond this age, it might be necessary to help them remain dry at night. Occassionally, a medical disorder may be present, but mostly bedwetting is due to an involuntary failure of learning; your child is not to blame. Successful treatment with the Rodger System takes from a few weeks to a few months. Persistance is the key to success. If relapse occurs, a second course will usually succeed.
In the early days of the treatment, a child who is a heavy sleeper may not wake up. In time, your child will ‘tune in’. Until then, you should wake your child, but make sure that your child hears and stops the alarm and goes to the bathroom.
Use the Rodger system every night until there have been no ‘wet beds’ for 14 nights.
The wireless receiver works on either mains or batteries. Do not use in combination as this may damage the circuitry.
It is advisable to place the receiver some distance from the child, so that they have to get out of bed to turn it off.
Other nearby transmitters can disturb the bedwetting alarm system. (For example : wireless baby monitor). Either change the frequencies of the other devices or move them if needed for the treatment period.
