CCS uses Dri Nites Wireless and the Ramsay Coote Mattress Alarms. Through a learning process called conditioning, the alarm teaches the child’s subconscious reflex system in the brain to become aware that the bladder is full and they should wake up and go to the toilet, or hold on for the night whilst asleep. Use of the alarms have a 70 – 87% success rate.
