General Details

Extra product information

COMPONENTS: Features a pressure sensitive bed mat positioned between two mattresses and a small control unit. It can be used in conjunction with a Nurse call system and the Bellman System for further alerting options such as vibration and visual lights.

METHOD OF OPERATION: The control unit features small dials for exit delay and volume with one small on/off/reset button. Two visual lights display standby and occupancy presence.

Tonic Clonic Seizure Sensor:
The seizure alarm can be set at various delays 7, 13 and 20 seconds, via the back of the control unit. Or alternatively a pre-set setting for tonic clonic setting is also available.

Exit Bed Sensor:
To set the alarm to Bed Exit Sensor, simply adjust the settings at the back of the control unit to "Enable". A delay can be set at various intervals, to avoid an alarm being triggered by normal bed movement, at 5 second intervals to 30 seconds, then at 60 and at 90 seconds.

Hyperventilation Sensor:
To set the alarm to Hyperventilation sensor, simply adjust the setting at the back of the control unit to "Enable". This setting will monitor slower, continued movements and alarm accordingly.

NB: ALL SENSORS CAN BE ENABLED TOGETHER OR CAN FUNCTION SEPARATELY.

A sensitivity dial will allow the control unit and it's settings to be more finely adjusted to increase the accuracy of the alarm settings.

POWER: Mains powered.

INSTALLATION: Do it yourself. Please check with the supplier to check compatibility with various nurse call systems.

For children under 16kg in weight the sensor should be placed on top of the mattress under the sheet and a waterproof pad.
