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 switch adapted toys have been a wonderful addition to our school. Both staff and children were thrilled to have some new exciting resources. The children love the lights and movement many of these switch toys have and are highly motivated to explore and investigate how to make them work. They have been great for pupils to develop their understanding of cause and effect and we have also noticed improved concentration and engagement when using them. Often it can be difficult to find toys that are robust enough to withstand lots of heavy use AND be interesting and fun. These new resources tick all those boxes. They have made a noticeable impact on the children’s development in this area.”
