Finding the Right Care Call Chair Leaving Pager Kit for You
28 January 2016 | John
Ensuring that those under your care don’t make themselves susceptible to chair falls by leaving a chair unaided is an important part of care, so the chair leaving pad is a great sensor to base your Care Call Pager kit around. All these kits include the pad and the Chair Leaving Monitor, which is needed to transmit the alert to the Pager.

Step Three: Choosing Additional Sensors
Now that you know you want to centre your Care Call Pager Kit around the Care Call Chair Leaving Pad, it’s time to decide which additional components you want in your kit. If you’re just looking for a Care Call Chair Leaving Pager kit, this is the one for you:
When someone tries to sit up from the chair, the Chair Leaving Pad and Chair Leaving Monitor will sense it and alert the Pager, so you can get to their aid quickly and avert a chair fall.
Under Carpet Pressure Pad
If you want to monitor more with your Care Call Pager kit, you can get the Care Call Chair Leaving Pager Kit with an Under Carpet Pressure Pad:
This enables you to be alerted when someone moves over a certain place. The Care Call Under Carpet Pressure Pad detects when someone steps on it and will alert the pager, so you can help prevent wandering by ensuring that people don’t move unaided.
When placed by the side of a bed, it can also help notify you of bed leaving – when they step out of bed, the alarm will trigger and you can quickly come to their aid.
Because the Care Call Pager kits use the Care Call system, they’re designed to be modular. You can add even more sensors to the system whenever you like, enabling you to build and adapt your system as you need to.
You could add a Care Call Key Fob Transmitter to your kit, so that those under your care can call of help easily and get that help quickly. This can also help reduce falls by eliminating any need people might have to wander.
Or you could add a Care Call Carbon Monoxide Alarm to the system, enabling you to be alerted through the pager to a dangerous concentration of carbon monoxide (CO) in the air, a dangerous and colourless gas which can’t be detected by humans.
You could also add a Care Call Magnetic Door Monitor to your system, enabling you to know when a door or window is opened. This is ideal for alerting you if those under your care go into rooms or cupboards they shouldn’t.
