Emfit Products: Epileptic Issues Solved

Thursday, 19 November 2015  |  Admin

Caring for someone who is epileptic is no mean feat. It is hard enough during the day, but when night falls and the work hasn't ended, it can be draining, stressful and worrying. What's to stop the patient from having a fit in the night and you not hearing it? 

Emfit know it is not worth the stress. Not when they have a way of dealing with this. The Epilepsy Tonic Clonic Seizure Mat with Bed Sensor can stop this from being a concern. Monitoring the patient's movement during the night means when fast movements are detected, the carer is alerted. They can sleep easy knowing an alarm will sound if there is a problem.

Issue solved. But...

What if the mat slides between the slats on the bed after a restless night? How will it pick up the signals and know something is wrong? That is where the new Bed Sensor Mat comes into play. Covered in PVC, it is designed to stop the mat from slipping from the bed. The Tonic Clonic Seizure Mat with Bed Sensor is the new mat and the sensor ready to go if you don't wish to adapt your existing one.

Issue solved. But...

What if you're not worried about epilepsy? What if your patient is prone to wandering and you want something more specifically designed for this? Don't worry, Emfit still have you covered. The Safebed Occupancy Alarm is highly sensitised to the movements of the individual. It goes as far as monitoring the heartbeat and  respiratory systems and if it doesn't sense them after three seconds... yep, it sounds the alarm. (Don't panic though - you can set the time for longer than three seconds to ensure you do not get woken up for bathroom runs in the middle of the night!)

Issue solved. But...

What if they are not in a bed? What if they are sitting in a seat where there is every risk they will fall off and no one will notice? Well... you've got it, Emfit have it sorted. The Seat Sensor Mat is positioned under the cushion of the chair and will sound an alarm when the weight disappears. They may have stood up. They may not. But someone will be alerted to the fact they are on the move and can investigate in case that direction is towards the floor.

Issue solved. But...

There is always the worry that you will not hear the alarm. What if it is upstairs and you are down? You might be out of earshot or otherwise preoccupied. It's a good job that Emfit have developed a Transmitter and Receiver then, isn't it? With a transmittable range of up to 80 metres, the transmitter is plugged into the unit of whichever system you are using and the receiver is kept on you. Now when there is a problem, this becomes the alarm. This means there is no concern over not hearing and reacting to the problem.
