The CareMat is simply placed beside the resident’s bed or in front of the door to the room and is then connected to the in-house nurse call system, wirelessly or by cable. As soon as a resident steps onto the mat, the CareMat triggers a signal that is relayed to the carer.
Early intervention triggered by the CareMat can reduce the risk of falls and the dangers which can arise when at-risk residents wander off or become disorientated. It is a valuable aid to assist care staff in preventing potential falls yet doesn’t restrict a resident’s independence or movement.
With SafeSense®, Wi-bo presents an intelligent assistance sensor system, that provides greater safety without the need for restraints.
SafeSense® signals nursing staff that the resident has left the bed or about to leave it. This provides faster response times in the event of falls and greater safety during the night and weekend shifts.
