Rodger Wireless with Briefs Sensor

Features & Technology:

The wireless Rodger bedwetting alarm is Rodger’s top alarm. It works with wired briefs.

  • True wireless – there are no wires connecting the sensor to the wireless transmitter or receiver.
  • Can only be used with wetness sensing briefs.
  • Sensor will not respond to gradual increase in wetness. So false alarms by perspiration are eliminated.
  • Wireless transmission distance between transmitter and receiver up to 23 meters (75 feet).
  • Sensor/transmitter is not waterproof and can be damaged by urine, water or other liquids.
  • Sensor/transmitter contains 2 AAA alkaline batteries, which make it weigh about 3 oz.
  • Receiver uses standard AC power. Batteries can also be used.
  • Receiver is plugged into an AC power source, typically a wall socket. The distance from this wall socket to the patient may force the patient to get up and turn the alarm off. No remote is available.
  • Loudness levels not provided.
  • Multi-level sound volume control.
  • Each sensor and remote has a unique signal code which is synchronized with the receiver(s). This allows the use of many Rodger systems together at the same time in one location.
  • An optional bed-shaker can be attached to any receiver, and is turned on or off with the alarm in the receiver.

Comparing Rodger Wireless with DryBuddyFLEX 3:

  • DryBuddyFLEX 3 can also be used with standard cotton briefs. Rodger cannot.
  • DryBuddy wetness sensing briefs have redundant wiring, so a break in a wire may still result in usable briefs. Rodger does not.
  • DryBuddyFLEX 3 provides a wireless remote control for convenience. Rodger does not.
  • Rodger has a much shorter wireless transmission distance and does not use re-transmission. So its maximum reception distance is about 22 meters (75 feet) from the sensor compared to 61 meters (200 ft.) for the DryBuddyFLEX 3, and much more with multiple DryBuddyFLEX 3 Transceivers.
  • The DryBuddyFLEX 3 Sensor/Transmitter is waterproof and not affected by urine, moisture or other liquids. The Rodger sensor is not waterproof and can become defective with urine or other liquids on it.
  • The DryBuddyFLEX 3 sensor/transmitter weighs about 1 oz. The Rodger transmitter, which uses 2 AAA alkaline batteries, weighs about 3 oz.
  • Remote monitoring is much easier with the DryBuddyFLEX 3 because of its much longer transmission range and availability of a remote.
  • DryBuddyFLEX 3 is much louder, and also provides a silent setting for patients who are not to be disturbed.
