Innovative touch sensors for beds, chairs and floor mats

The system for people with dementia also includes innovative pressure sensors that monitor when the pressure on a sensor decreases (chair, bed) or increases (floor mats).

All sensors are extensions to the wireless and wired nurse call systems we offer, and their installation and connectivity is easy, quick and flawless. The sensor system also includes a special warning function for when sensors reach the end of their service life. Constantly transmitted soft whistles and LED signals inform nursing staff that sensors will soon reach the end of their service life. This innovative solution makes the system reliable and staff are reassured that they will always be notified when residents or patients need their help.

Chair sensor:

Residents or patients in poor health often use wheelchairs. By using this sensor a member of the nursing staff will immediately know when a resident/patient wants to stand up and can therefore offer his or her help straight away.


Bed sensor:

When a person is very ill and thus bedridden, a member of the nursing staff can immediately respond when he or she receives a warning that the person has left the bed. This could also indicate a fall, which requires immediate assistance. For users not completely bedridden an alarm delay can be set – for example 15 minutes, which is especially welcome at night when users go to the toilet and an immediate alarm could disturb other people.

Floor mat sensor:

A sensor can be placed in front of the bed to warn staff when a user leaves his or her bed, or in front of the door which signals that user has left his or her room. These sensors are used to prevent wandering in people with dementia and can be used together with bed and chair sensors. They can also be used in several other ways.


Advantages:

  • Wireless bed/chair sensors can be monitored remotely through
    the computer program
  • The sensors are sensitive to touch and have a very durable surface. Their long service life prevents the triggering of false alarms
  • The sensors have ventilation holes in the neck area, which are separated from the main part and thus prevent water leaks, and a cable, which falls out when pulled
  • The bed and chair sensors contain highly non-allergenic, soft PVC that offers maximum comfort for users
