DRI Sleeper Alarm System

Quit Wettin’ the Bed, Fred

The start of a new school year is stressful for everyone, but even more so for families with bed wetters. Besides the lack of sleep and overall frustration you’re ALL feeling, your child is also likely dealing with significant emotional and social issues associated with bed wetting.

If you are tired of the stress (and mess), try a bedwetting alarm as a training tool. 

Bed wetting alarms detect moisture and awaken the child when just a drop or two of urine hits the sensor pad.  They are worn in the child’s undergarments.  Check out the unisex DRI Sleeper Alarm System.  There is also a Nite Train’r for Males and a Nite Train’r for Females.

Crissy, an Allegro customer from Fullerton, CA says, “Our six year old son never had dry nights, even as a preschooler. He is a very sound sleeper, but after two nights he began waking up to the alarm…he has had three dry nights during the third week of use.”

Don’t wait until you’re at the end of your rope. Hopefully a bedwetting alarm will quickly let you remove bedwetting from the list of stressors in the morning rush to school.

We have a complete selection of Child Nutrition products – our most popular being Pediasure, Boost Kid Essentials, and Boost Pudding.

These products cover picky eaters, skinny kids, special needs, gluten intolerance, lactose intolerance, reduced appetite, super-active, low-weight, chronic illnesses, short-term illnesses, malnutrition – pretty much everything. There’s no reason for you to worry about Junior getting enough to eat.  Kids love this stuff.

    Urinary incontinence (UI) is defined as the involuntary release of urine.  It’s way more common than you might think and no matter what your age, it is treatable or can be managed.  The good thing is that it is not a serious health problem, but it can be embarrassing.  UI occurs twice as often in women as men, and older women experience UI more often than younger.  

    If you’re looking for urinary incontinence products as a temporary fix – while waiting for surgery or other treatment – or you’re looking for a long-term option, Allegro has a wide variety of products to make you as comfortable and carefree as possible. 

    I’ve geared this Buyer’s Guide more towards women because of its prevalence,  but we carry hundreds of products designed for male incontinence as well.

    Caregivers of incontinent patients take note.  You can do it the hard way, or the easy way.  Let us help you find the easy way. 

    Urinary Incontinence Buyer’s Guide

     Reusable Bedpads- Our top sellers.  These machine washable and dryable bedpads are a super economical way to protect your bed AND your skin from moisture.  They have a quilted cotton/polyester surface, absorbent inner layer and waterproof backing.

     

    Disposable Bedpads – The Harmonie Disposable Underpads are the most popular because of their great value, but the Prevail Super Absorbent Underpads takes the prize for the highest rating.  I guess you should try them both.

    See all Bedpads & Sheeting

     

    Washcloths - Favorites include the Prevail Soft Pack Washcloths  and the Prevail Disposable Washcloths Jumbo Tub.   They’re 12″ x 8″, super strong, amazingly soft and come in a single hand dispenser that produces an unfolded wipe every time.  Alcohol-free.  Contains aloe & lanolin to keep you nice and comfy.

    Stop Missin’ the Bus, Gus

    (school morning dialog without the Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock):
    Time to wake up! Sweetie, get up… Get up, please. C’mon now, up, up, up. You’re going to be late for school…. (5 minutes later) Don’t make me come in there. Get…up…NOW.

    (school morning dialog WITH the Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock):
    Well, aren’t you on the ball today! Holy moley, you’re dressed already. What a great kid. (smiles, whistling, high fives ensue)

    Having a hard time waking them up? Fear not. Blast ‘em out of bed with a Sonic Bomb alarm clock. There’s even a Sonic Boom Sweetheart Alarm Clock to wake your sleeping beauty.

    Really, they’re not as scary as they sound and we sell a ton of them so they must work. Allegro Medical product manager Mike Benge wakes up to the Sonic Bomb every morning.  He says, “It’s like a freight train coming at me. Lights are flashing, the bed is shaking, and the sound is like nothing you’ve ever heard.”

    You can set these clocks to do all kinds of things – loud or not so much. I have the Portable Vibrating Travel Alarm that gently vibrates my pillow so I don’t wake up all freaked out. Ahhhhh. No noise – but I could add noise if I wanted.  And for all you do, Soccer Mom, you deserve a nice gradual awakening with the Sunrise Alarm Clock.  

    Hate running to catch the bus?  How about chasing your alarm clock instead?  This one jumps from the nightstand and runs away.  Seriously!  It’s called the Chrome Clocky Mobile Alarm Clock.  Makes a great gift.

    Urinary Incontinence

    Involuntary urination or Urinary Incontinence (UI), is a common medical condition affecting millions of Americans, 85% of whom are women. Pregnant women or women who recently gave birth may experience bouts of UI due to weakened pelvic muscles. It is also common in the elderly, developing from relaxed muscles or menopausal conditions in women, and prostate surgery, spinal cord injuries, certain prescribed medications and even caffeine intake in men.

    There are several types of incontinence, including:

    1. Stress incontinence, which is leakage of small amounts during exercise, or while coughing or sneezing.

    2. Functional incontinence, which is due to physical or mental disabilities such as Alzheimer’s or stroke, that prevents a person from reaching a restroom in time.

    3. Urge incontinence, also called ‘overactive’ or ‘spastic’ bladder, causes urine loss during sleep or at the urge to urinate. It is caused by damage to the nervous system or to bladder nerves or muscles and is common for people with Alzheimer’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.

    4. Overflow incontinence, most common in men, is caused by a bladder that is always full and leaks. A blocked urethra, weak bladder muscles and damaged nerves from certain diseases like Diabetes can cause overflow incontinence.

    5. Transient incontinence is temporary UI due to an illness or infection that will pass, like a urinary tract infection.

    Many types of incontinence can be treated, with pelvic and kegel exercises, bladder training, medication or surgery. Consult your doctor for education and treatment. And for incontinence medical supplies, come to Allegro. We have everything you need.

    Underpads

    Protect beds, chairs, car seats and other surfaces with underpads. They are highly absorbent and will not irritate even the most sensitive skin. They are available in various sizes, in disposable or wash-and-reusable. Tuckable underpads cover the width of a mattress and can be tucked under, to stay in place. The reusable chair pad is velour covered, perfect for chair and wheelchair seat protection.

    Bedwetting

    Help your child to stop wetting his or her bed with the latest in bedwetting alarm devices. Available as an under sheet device or compact to fit inside the pajamas. Just a few drops of urine sounds an alarm to wake the child.

    Briefs, etc.

    Adult briefs and undergarments for incontinence provide super absorbency. They pull on and off like regular underwear, and some have convenient tear away sides, others have re-fastenable tapes. Sold by the case for extra value. Incontinence pads fit securely onto underwear and provide protection, for light, medium, heavy and super absorbency. A drip collector for men who are post prostate surgery is more discreet and comfortable than undergarments, and is perfect for minor incontinence. Mesh pants provide cool support for pads, keeping them in place while allowing air in.
    To soothe sore, irritated skin from incontinence, sween cream is a non-occlusive solution with vitamins A & D.
    Keep the room fresh with odor eliminator in long lasting, fresh, clean scents used by healthcare institutions. Disposable washcloths are convenient and sanitary for incontinence issues and will help prevent skin irritation. Specially made for geriatric skin, and will even form a protective barrier on the skin to keep moisture out.

    Reusables

    Be economical and create less wasted materials with reusable incontinence products like pull-on briefs for men and women, or washable underpads for the bed. Men’s boxer shorts have support for a pad. In small through x-large sizes.
