Alerta Wireless Floor+ Alertamat Pressure Alarm Mat
Whether caring for someone at risk of falling out of bed or a patient with dementia prone to wandering unattended, it's crucial to have an alarm system that lets you provide the appropriate care as soon as possible. The soft and cushioned Alerta Wireless Floor+ Alertamat Pressure Alarm Mat sends a wireless signal to a receiver when stepped on, instantly alerting caregivers of falls or wandering so they can ascertain the patient's safety as soon as possible.
- 1 x Alertamat Alarm Sensor Mat
- 1 x Wireless transmitter
Please note: The Wireless Alertamat Alarm 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 Do I Use the Alerta Wireless Floor+ 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 is stepped on. 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.
Where Should It Be Placed?
The Alertamat Pressure Alarm Mat is most effective when placed directly at the bedside or in the doorway, so that any fall out of bed or attempt to wander is immediately indicated to the nursing or care staff. The moment the patient stands or falls onto the Alertamat, it will instantly activate the nurse call system or Wall Point Receiver, allowing the caregiver to quickly check the patient's safety in a prompt fashion.

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.
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.
