MedEquip4Kids is helping children to overcome problems with continence by providing enuresis (bedwetting) alarms and vibrating toilet training watches for the Paediatric Continence Service based at Sunnybank Health Centre in Bury.

Seven-year-old Nathan was struggling with bedwetting on a nightly basis. He was referred to the clinic at Sunnybank where he was assessed and his family agreed to try using an enuresis alarm for twelve weeks. After getting used to the alarm, Nathan is now able to stay dry during the night.

Continence advisor Claire Bilsborrow says: “Stopping bedwetting makes a huge difference to the child and their family’s quality of life, improves self-esteem, reduces laundry costs and enables the child to have sleepovers and go on holidays with school.”

“The materials provided greatly help with the therapeutic process and engaging children, young people and their families in therapeutic work. The young people greatly appreciate having this equipment to use within their sessions. Many of the young people we see have a history of trauma including neglect and being able to access materials that they can use and enjoy is of great benefit and hopefully assists us to reinforce the messages of their worth as their self-concept is often very low.”
