Chair Occupancy Alarm Mat System with Voice Alert and Pager
The Chair Occupancy Alarm Mat System with Voice Alert and Pager has been designed to monitor and assist a person who requires help when leaving a chair. Not only are you alerted instantly that the person is rising from their chair, but you are also able to pre-record a reassuring voice message that will play to the patient or loved one as soon as they get up.
This is a full system comprising everything you need for chair occupancy monitoring, including the batteries required for operation. This allows you to set everything up quickly and easily without worrying about having to obtain additional parts.
Who Can Use the Voice Alert System?
The voice alert system is ideal for many care situations, both at home and in professional care. Examples of situations include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Helping someone who is unsteady on their feet
- Monitoring someone prone to wandering
- Assisting someone who may require assistance when they get up to go to the toilet
- Monitoring a person who could be a danger to themselves or others if they get out of their chair
- Making sure that if someone has returned to their chair safely after a toilet break or short walk
Minimum User Weight
Please note that this system has a minimum user weight of 6.5kg and any weight less than this will not reliably trigger the alarm mat.
How Does the Alarm Mat System Work?
The chair pressure mat is placed under the cushion of the chair, and this is then connected to the transmitter, which is also the voice alarm. When the mat detects that the user has left the chair, an alert is transmitted to the pager so that you can assist if necessary. A voice alert can also be emitted at the point of transition; see below for more information.
How Does the Voice Alert Work?
With the voice alarm, you can record a voice message, and whenever the patient tries to leave their chair it will play the message. This helps to reassure them that help is on the way soon, and can also serve as a reminder for them to take their walking aid or emergency call pendant with them.
How Comfortable Is the Chair Mat?
The chair mat is incredibly thin, which means that it isn't noticeable or uncomfortable under the chair. It can be placed underneath the cushion out of the way.
Will the MPPL Pager Work in My House?
For certain properties, such as older houses with thicker walls, you may find that the range of your MPPL device is reduced. To counter this, we recommend using the MPPL Pager Alarms Signal Repeater and Booster, which can be used to expand the operating range of your product.
Delay Feature for Bathroom Visits
The Occupancy Alarm Kit features a delay function that can be programmed to send an alert to the pager if the chair has been unoccupied for up to 15 minutes. This is great if an individual in your care can go to the bathroom on their own but should not be wandering for too long on their own.
