The Bed-Mat is a foil embossed plastic mat which fits between the sheets over the mattress. It can be easily cleaned, dried and replaced and is attached the the alarm by a very slim wire which does not distirb the user in bed.
This type of sensor is particulary useful if the child does not want to clip a sensor to their underpants. A Bed-Mat sensor can be used with all types of Malem Alarms apart from the Wireless alarm.
Bed-Mat dimensions: 54cmx42cm
The main thing to note is that Bed-Mat sensors are more sensitive to changes in temperature and humididty than any other sensor. Sweaty skin can also trigger the alarm to go off when using a Bed-Mat sensor. Ongoing adjustments might need to be made during the warmer months, with the addition of a cotton towel on top of the flat sheet.
