The Medpage home falls prevention alarm system consists of a bed pressure sensor, fall detection wristband with touch operated call button and a wireless portable alarm station with audible and visual alarm notification.
A high percentage of falls occur in the home when a person leaves their bed during the night. A live-in carer may be unaware, even if sharing the same bed, that the person could be at risk from a fall or has left the bed in a state of delirium. The sensor controller (CTM-3) will detect the person rising from their bed and signal the alarm receiver, either in the same room or wirelessly to any other room in the house. The CTM-3 is a versatile sensor controller with selectable options for bed occupancy detection or stand-on floor pressure mat alarm. The alarm notification can be selected for instant or after a 15-minute delay (allowing for W/C visits).
The included fall detection bracelet provides daytime alerts to falls using gravity sensors. If the person falls to the floor or out of a chair an alarm signal is transmitted to the alarm call station. The bracelet also features a touch-sensor call button (not waterproof), which makes it easy for people with disability or poor dexterity to signal for help.
The alarm call station has 5 alarm channels, each represented by different coloured flashing ultra-bright LED’s. In addition to items supplied in this kit additional sensors can be added including; PIR movement sensors, door contact alarm transmitters or photoelectric beam sets. To aid deaf people an optional plug-in vibrating pillow shaker is available for night time alarm alerts.
