DryNites® Bed Mats

  • What does it do?:

    To circumvent incontinence, these absorbent pads are placed on top of the sheet and keep your bed dry.

  • What’s the problem?:

    Protecting mattresses and bedding from overnight incontinence.

  • What our testers liked:

    Feels less clammy to sleep on than full waterproof mattresses, if used on top of the sheets it reduces washing as it can be thrown away.  Good for holidays or overnight stays away. Has sticky fixers on each corner to hold it in place. Available in most large supermarkets.

  • What our testers disliked:

    Cannot be used on top of the base sheet if the sleeper is very restless.

  • What is interesting:
  • This is a repurposing of a product designed for an alternative market. Because it is mass market the price is lower than a 'medical' aid.
  • What our testers said:

    "Helps reduce washing and gives a better nights sleep."

  • Manufacturer:

    DryNites®

  • Approximate cost: £4
