“The bedwetting alarm” is best known as an effective method to stop bedwetting. But the bedwetting alarm can also be effective for urinary problems during the day. We have the smallest and lightest bedwetting alarm in the Netherlands; the Apollo 24 daytime alarm.

Urinary accidents during the day

The vast majority of children are toilet trained earlier during the day than at night. This is mainly because you start toilet training during the day before bedwetting is tackled. In addition, potty training during the day is also easier for many children, because children are often aware of what is happening (they are awake).
Nevertheless, there are also many children who suffer from unwanted urination accidents during the day, at school age.

Children are too distracted, theyforget to pee

Children have to process many impulses during the day from everything that happens around them. At school, but certainly also outside with playing, gaming and so on. In addition, your own body also gives signals, such as the stimuli of a full bladder. But these are often ignored or pushed aside by children, because it does not suit them at that moment. They are in the middle of a game, don't want to miss anything or are afraid of 'losing' something.
These children feel that they have to urinate, but do not act on it. The pee watches are the best solution for these children. In this way, routine and regularity are introduced into urination behavior in an accessible way.

Children do not feel when they start to urinate

If your child does not feel the need to urinate at all, then daytime bedwetting alarm training with the Apollo 24 is the smartest choice. In this way, your child develops a reflex to the stimuli of a full bladder. The Apollo 24 immediately gives an alarm signal the moment the first drops of urine fall. Within a few weeks, your child will learn to recognize the stimuli of a full bladder and know that he or she has to go to the toilet to urinate.

Advantages of the Apollo 24 daytime alarm

  • It is the smallest and, at only 24 grams, also the lightest bedwetting alarm, making it very pleasant to use for children
  • The user has the choice of vibration and/or sound alarm signal
  • The sound of the alarm signal has an adjustable volume
  • The Apollo 24 is reimbursed by many health insurers in a supplementary package .

Sensor pants, sensor inserts or clip

The Apollo 24 actually works the same as a bedwetting alarm for the night. As soon as the first drops of urine enter the underpants, the alarm goes off. Your child can use the special Urifoon sensor underwear, but for the Apollo 24 we also have special sensor inserts that can be worn in their own underwear. They are explained in more detail below.

Sensor trousers (washable)

The sensor underwear looks like normal underwear and is a boxer model for a boy and a hipster model for a girl. What is special is that sensor wires are incorporated into the underwear. A connecting cable with 2 press studs is attached to the underwear and this is connected to the Apollo 24. As soon as the first drops of urine enter the sensor pants, the alarm is immediately activated.

Sensor insert (single use)

The sensor insert is used in your own underwear. Just like the sensor underwear, these pads have a large sensor range, so that the first drops of urine are always detected. A cord is connected to the insert with an orange clip, which is connected to the Apollo 24. For example, the alarm immediately goes off with the first drops of urine.

The big advantage of these inserts is that after urinating, the entire underpants often do not have to be changed immediately, but only the insert needs to be replaced. The insert does not allow moisture to pass through, so if you respond quickly to the alarm, the underpants will remain dry. The wet insert is simply replaced with a new insert and your child can continue training. The wet insert is thrown away because it cannot be washed.

Clip on your own underwear

The cheapest solution is simply to attach the standard supplied clip to your own underwear. The alarm will sound if the clip gets wet. But where do the first drops of urine come from? So where should I attach the clip? This is difficult to predict, especially in boys...


In practice, most people choose sensor inserts because:

  1. It is the easiest to use. Changing underwear during the day (shoes off – pants off – underwear changed – pants on – shoes on) is laborious. Especially if this happens several times a day.
  2. Just like the sensor underwear, it has a large sensor range, so the first drops are always detected immediately.
