Bed and Chair Wireless Alarm Pad Systems
One problem frequently encountered by caregivers is that patients may try to get out of a bed or chair alone, even though they lack the strength or coordination to do so. Similarly, patients with dementia may try to perform kitchen tasks, such as cooking or slicing foods, that they not capable of doing in a safe manner. An Alzheimer's alarm can alert the caregiver to the patient's risky behavior and help curb the dangers posed by wandering.
These wireless devices may be used as a mattress alarm or bed and chair alarm, placed in the bed or beneath a chair cushion to send a signal when the patient shifts his weight from the pad. At the bedside, the alarm signals that the patient has left his bed.
These senior care alarms are a wireless device and emits a signal both at the location of the pad and at the caregiver's remote location. When weight is lifted off of the pad, alarms sound inside the room and in the hallway with the remote receiver. The transmitter has a range of 100 feet, allowing the remote alarm to be placed far from the patient's room. Caregivers can sleep and relax easier, knowing that the alarm will notify them should the patient attempt to perform unassisted activities.
AliMed® Sensor Pad Alarm Systems are a great option for alerting caregivers to potential falls. The sensor triggers an audible alarm when a patient attempts to rise off the pad. The moment the patient's weight has been removed, the caregiver is instantly alerted by the sounding alarm. Alarm can be set to sound simultaneously at bedside and outside the room at the remote receiver. Remote Receiver will also flash yellow for a visual alert.
How it works:
Alarm is triggered when patient's body weight is lifted off pad.
Alarm resets when pressure is reapplied to sensor pad.
For patients at risk of
wandering or falling, caregivers need to be alerted immediately of any attempt
to get out of beds, chairs or wheelchairs.
