Helping to prevent the risk of falls when wandering, the SafePresence® Safenbed Alert System detects when a patient steps onto or moves off a sensor mat and can be set to sound an alarm. This alerts carers that the person at risk of falling has left their chair or bed. It can also be set to alarm if someone fails to return to bed after a pre-determined length of time, 10, 20 or 60 minutes, allowing them time to go to the toilet or take medication.
An alert will sound on the unit 5 minutes before the main alarm reminding the user to return to their bed or chair. It has three volume settings, including a silent option, and can be set so the alarm is either a chime or buzzer. This alert system can be used as a local alert and can link into nurse call systems.
