DryBuddy 2 with Magnetic Sensor and with Briefs Sensor

   

Features & Technology:

The wireless DryBuddy 2 is the new 2nd Generation DryBuddy and offers far more features and conveniences than any other bedwetting alarm today except for the DryBuddyFLEX 3. It can be used with standard cotton briefs or with wired wetness sensing briefs.

  • True wireless – there are no wires what-so-ever on the patient’s body or clothing.
  • True mobile – the DryBuddy 2 has complete self-contained power and can be very conveniently carried and used in public places while maintaining privacy.
  • Flexibility to use with regular cotton briefs or DryBuddy wetness sensing briefs.
  • Patented magnetic sensor attaches the sensor magnetically to regular cotton briefs.
  • Integrated wireless transmitter is one unit with the sensor.
  • Sealed water-resistant sensor/transmitter with sealed battery and battery life of over 800 triggers.
  • Sensor/transmitter is waterproof and will not be damaged by urine, water or other liquids.
  • Sensor will not respond to gradual increase in wetness. So false alarms by perspiration are eliminated.
  • Receiver uses two AAA alkaline batteries..
  • Transmission distance between sensor transmitter and transceiver is up to 22 meters (72 feet).
  • Patented wetness sensing briefs use redundant wiring to sense wetness. If a wire breaks, the briefs may still be usable.
  • Wetness sensing briefs have a very large area over which they will sense wetness. Particularly useful for male patients who may sleep on their sides.
  • Very loud audio output from receiver, 93 dB at 20 cms (8”) and 82.5 dB at 60 cms (2 ‘).
  • Multi-level sound volume control.
  • Sound alarm is music instead of electronic noises.
  • Silent sound setting is provided so the patient is not disturbed.
  • Vibration can be set to Strong or Mild (like a cell phone). When carried in the user’s pant pocket, the mild vibration can be felt by the user while maintaining privacy.
  • Each sensor and remote has a unique signal code which is synchronized with the transceiver(s). This allows the use of many DryBuddy 2 systems together at the same time in one location.
  • Multiple Receivers can work with a single sensor to provide alarm at many locations.
