Caring for a loved one is hard work, especially if they are prone to wanderings or falls. Ensuring they are being monitored at all times is a difficult challenge, even when they are in a care home. Nurses cannot be watching a patient at all times, and it only takes a few moments for someone to wander off. Wanderings can lead to becoming lost and distressed, or result in falls and accidents for those who are unsteady on their feet. This is not a reputation a care home wishes to develop.
With the Rondish Chair Sensor Mat for the Rise Alarm Kit this problem can be monitored and controlled. Positioned on the chair, the sensor sounds an alert when weight is removed. This alerts the carer to movement before the patient has the chance to wander off.
Features of the rondish chair sensor mat
The chair sensor mat is an ideal way of monitoring the movements of a patient. Ideally positioned towards the back of the chair, the sensor connects when weight is placed on it. When this weight shifts, the connection is broken and the alarm will be sent to the pager. Positioned at the back means the weight leaves the mat before the person stands as they have to move themselves forward before standing, helping to prevent accidents and falls.
The chair sensor is manufactured by a high quality polyvinyl, ensuring excellent durability and the ability to wipe clean the sensors if required.
A 2m lead is fitted for connection with the monitor or to plug into the nurse call system.
The chair sensor mat measures 15" x 12".
Normal strength disinfectants can be used to sterilise the sensor mat if required.
