The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether the bedwetting alarm trigger activated by parents to wake their child, in addition to the moisture alarm, will improve treatment success compared to the moisture alarm alone.


Nocturnal enuresis is a common issue in children, and use of bedwetting alarms has shown the best long-term success. However, use of alarms is very time-intensive, often taking months before yielding results. Researchers in the division of pediatric urology are initiating a randomized controlled study comparing a standard bedwetting alarm with a newly developed technology, with the hope that the new alarm will result in better, more rapid, and easier treatment for bedwetting.

Children between the ages of 5 to 15 years old who have issues with bedwetting after successful toilet training may qualify for the study.

Participants must first be evaluated by a pediatric urology specialist.
