Alerta Alertamat Wireless Chair Sensor Mat
Patients in care homes will often spend long hours of the day sitting in a chair or wheelchair, and may be at a great risk of injury if they fall from the chair or attempt to wander on foot. Suitable for placement on any chair, Alerta Alertamat Wireless Chair Sensor Mat will send a wireless signal to a receiver or nurse call system if a patient leaves their chair, alerting care teams of the situation so they can quickly ascertain safety.

Please note: The Wireless Alertamat Bed Sensor Mat requires the Alerta Wall Point Wireless Receiver for operation. You can add the receiver to your order using the drop-down menu above.
How Does the Alertamat Work?
The Alertamat Chair Pressure Alarm Mat features a pressure sensor to detect when a patient leaves their chair in order to provide the carer with advanced warning of any wandering or fall. The moment the patient falls or leaves the chair, the mat will instantly send a signal to the Wall Point Receiver, which will then sound a standalone alarm or signal an alert through the connected nurse call system. This allows the caregiver to quickly ascertain the patient's safety in a prompt fashion, limiting injuries from falls or unattended wandering.
Where Can I Place the Chair Alertamat Alarm Mat?
The Alerta Chair Sensor Mat is most effective when placed on the top surface of a chair as shown below, or concealed under a blanket for enhanced comfort. As the mat is completely wireless, it can be used with wheelchairs, allowing carers to ensure safety across multiple rooms in a care home. Placement of the mat is possible under the cushions of some chairs, providing the cushions are particularly light and thin.

How Do I Use the Alerta Wireless Chair Alarm Mat?
Once paired with your Alerta Wall Point Receiver (available via drop-down menu above), this sensor mat will send a signal any time it detects a patient leave their chair. An alarm will sound directly on the receiver if used as a standalone system, or an alarm will be sent through a nurse call system if your receiver is connected to one.
Who Is the Alertamat For?
The Alertamat is ideal for any environment where a carer may be worried about a patient's safety due to falls and wandering. It is perfect for use in residential care settings, as well as hospitals and care homes that may be caring for patients with dementia or memory issues.
Where Is a Standalone Alarm System Necessary?
While any care home or hospital with a nurse call system will most likely choose to connect their mat into the system, the standalone option is ideal for residential care settings or smaller care homes. With a standalone Alerta Wall Point Receiver, a signal will be sent and an alarm will sound directly on the receiver itself, allowing for simple and quick reaction from care staff. The receiver can be used with battery operation (2 x 1.5V AA batteries), allowing carers to keep it on hand should any emergency arise.
Will the Wall Point Receiver Always Sound An Alarm?
For situations where your Alertamat is connected to a nurse call system, it may not be necessary for the Wall Point Receiver to sound an alarm as well. In these cases, the Wall Point Receiver can be silenced, sending an alert to the nurse call system while remaining silent in the patient's room. This is ideal in situations where an alarm may startle a patient, or if multiple patients are in the same room.
Simple Pairing System
To make use as simple as possible, the Alertamat is designed with a simple pairing system that allows the caregiver quick and easy set up in any hospital or care home scenario. The Wall Point Receiver is available with a choice of a variety of plugs to make it compatible with most nurse call systems, allowing the Alertamat to be up and running immediately.
Hygienic and Easy to Clean
As patients may be resting on top of the Alertamat for hours at a time, ensuring quick and easy cleaning is crucial to maintain hygiene standards. To facilitate this, the mat is made with hygienic and antibacterial materials, and a smooth easy-wipe surface for simple disinfection.
How Many Alertamats Can Be Used at Once?
When connecting your wireless Alerta products into a nurse call system, each Wall Point Receiver is able to receive signals from up to five Alertamats or Alerta alarm devices. One receiver will not interfere with another, allowing for the potential for multiple receivers to be used in a single care environment for a truly comprehensive falls and wandering prevention program.
