An alarm system to alert carer when a person has moved off their bed or chair. It consists of a pressure mat and alarm. Whilst pressure is on the mat, the relay contact connecting the alarm system is open. When the pressure is removed, the alarm system is activated. A time delay can be incorporated to allow the person to leave their chair or bed for a short period of time.

General Details

Extra product information

Healthcare Facility Use
The monitoring is achieved through the use of 2 alarm components:
- The use of a pressure mat located in the bed where the person normally sits or lays. This mat is cabled to a relay interface which is connected to the alarm box with the alarm output connected as required to:
. Nurse call alarm
. Audible pager
. Mobile pager alarm
. Semi fixed pager
- While the person lies or sits in bed the relay contact connecting the
alarm system is open. Immediately the person leaves the bed, the relay contact closes causing the alarm system to be activated.
- The alarm panel can incorporate a time delay function that provides an adjustable time delay to prevent false alarms from occurring.

Home Use
When the person gets up and relieves the pressure on the mat, a signal is sent to carers in another room via a radio signal on a short range pager. This means no connecting wires are required.

- The use of a plate switch can be used on a person's chair to provide the signal when the person exits the chair. The operation is the same as for the above described pressure mat. The plate switch may need to be encased in a plastic sleeve to prevent moisture, such as urine coming into contact with the switch.
- If the hardness of the plate is uncomfortable or provides a pressure
point, the plate switch can be swapped to a thin plastic membrane which contours to the shape of the body. It operates in the same way as the standard plate switch or pressure pad.
