DryBuddyFLEX 3 Wireless with Magnetic and Wetness Briefs Sensors

 

Features & Technology:

The wireless DryBuddyFLEX 3 is the new 3rd Generation DryBuddyFLEX and offers far more features and conveniences than any other bedwetting alarm today. 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.
  • Flexibility to use with regular cotton briefs or DryBuddy wetness sensing briefs.
  • Wireless remote control can turn off the alarm when sounding, and turn the entire system on and off, and perform other functions.
  • 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 2,000 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 (called transceiver) uses standard AC power. No batteries required.
  • Transmission distance between sensor transmitter and transceiver is up to 61 meters (200 feet).
  • Patented transceiver (receiver-transmitter) re-transmits any signals received from the sensor or remote. Transmission distance between transceivers is up to 61 meters (200 feet).
  • Transceivers can be daisy-chained to substantially extend the range throughout a home for control and alarming.
  • Patented wetness sensing briefs use redundant wiring to sense wetness. If a wire breaks, the briefs may still be usable.
  • Very loud audio output from transceiver (97.2 dB at 20 cms (8”) and 91.5 dB at 60 cms (2 ‘) and 86.4 dB at 150 cms. (5 ft.).
  • Multi-level sound volume control.
  • Sound alarm is music instead of electronic noises.
  • Silent sound setting is provided so the patient is not disturbed.
  • Remote monitoring is very easy.
  • Each sensor and remote has a unique signal code which is synchronized with the transceiver(s). This allows the use of many DryBuddyFLEX systems together at the same time in one location.
  • An optional bed-shaker or audio alarm can be attached to any transceiver, and is turned on or off with the alarm in the transceiver.

Convenience:

Where it can be used:

  • Unisex. Can be used with males and females, children and adults.

  • Can be used in any home or treatment facility where 120-240V AC is available.
  • Multiple DryBuddyFLEX systems can be used simultaneously in any location.
  • The 200 ft. (61 m.) wireless range allows it to cover large distances in homes or elsewhere.
  • DryBuddyFLEX is the only bedwetting alarm system that can be used over very large distances with the use of multiple transceivers.
  • It can be used to silently monitor patients by turning the alarm sound to silent, and/or monitoring on a transceiver which is not near the patient.

Comfort:

  • With standard cotton briefs – Good.
  • With DryBuddy wetness sensing briefs – Very good.

Comparisons:

Comparing DryBuddyFLEX 3 with DryBuddy 2 Wireless:

  • DryBuddyFLEX 3 and the DryBuddy 2 can be used with standard cotton briefs and DryBuddy wetness sensing briefs.
  • DryBuddy 2 does not provide a wireless remote control for convenience of use and control.
  • DryBuddy 2 has a shorter wireless transmission distance and does not use re-transmission. So its maximum reception distance is about 22 meters (72 feet) from the sensor compared to 61 meters (200 ft.) for the DryBuddyFLEX 3, and much more with multiple DryBuddyFLEX Transceivers.
  • The DryBuddyFLEX 3 and DryBuddy 2 Sensor/Transmitters are waterproof have similar physical sizes and properties.
  • DryBuddyFLEX 3 is louder, while both have silent settings..
  • The louder sound setting allows the DryBuddyFLEX 3 to be heard at a further distance than the DryBuddy 2. Both are louder than other alarms.
  • The DryBuddyFLEX 3 alarm box can be located wherever desired. It can be placed in a convenient (for example, close to the user) or inconvenient location, as can the DryBuddy 2.
  • Remote monitoring is much easier with the DryBuddyFLEX because of its much longer transmission range and availability of a remote.
  • DryBuddyFLEX can be set to prevent child/patient abuse where the child turns the alarm off so as to not be woken, and turns it on again later without the parent/caregiver knowing.
  • A bed-shaker is an add-on for the DryBuddyFLEX 3, while a strong vibrator (with a weak optional setting) is built into the DryBuddy 2.
  • The DryBuddy 2 can provide very convenient mobile use, while the DryBuddyFLEX 3 must have an AC power source.
  • The DryBuddyFLEX 3 is more expensive.
