Falls, minor accidents or sudden spells of weakness may affect elderly resident who are still mobile. Professional service providers do not have the required time resources to ensure monitoring day and night, owing to ever-growing numbers of people needing to receive care. Devices such as the ManDown Sensor NurseCall can be integrated into the work of professional caregivers to support residents and aid their freedom of movement and hobbies.
ManDown Sensor NurseCall – how it works
Taking walks can prove to be a risk for elderly residents who might be a bit shaky on their feet. The risk of an extended secondary condition can increase, particularly when the affected people are not found after a long time. A ManDown Sensor NurseCall can be used to report any accidents in a timely manner. The sensor can detect different inclines and can therefore determine if a person moves from an upright position to a lying position. For example, it can be attached around the neck of an elderly. If the person is in a horizontal position for longer than 10 seconds, a 30-second pre-alarm is activated. If the alarm is not interrupted by the individual, an alarm message will be sent via the NurseCall system set-up at the home. The alarm is triggered in a simple manner and does not require any stimulus signals from the outside – only for the patient.
ManDown Sensor NurseCall automatically checks the batteries on a daily basis. If the charge level is under 20%, the unit sends alarm signals. The batteries have a service life of at least 6 months and up to 2 years. In order to avoid any effects which are hazardous to health, only mercury-free materials are used for products.
