The B80A wireless programmable Wristband Transmitter with Accompany and Acknowledgment function is a device dedicated to authorized staff only.
As part of a Nurse Call Dementia system, it is specially designed to help staff accompany patients through a beacon-controlled area without setting off alarms.
In addition, the B80A also enables staff to acknowledge an alarm by pressing the green button, which activates a short-distance radio signal. The transmitter to be acknowledged must be within 5cm of the B80A.
Designed for caregivers
The B80A can also be used for sending an emergency call in case a caregiver is exposed to aggressive behaviour, for example.
The B80A is waterproof and lightweight. It may be worn comfortably on the wrist, by a clip or as a pendant with an adjustable cord.
Automatic alarm acknowledgement
When a patient leaves the building with an S87L wireless transmitter, the alarm is automatically acknowledged when accompanied by a nursing staff member with a B80A wireless handheld transmitter.
This product is part of the dementia portfolio of the NurseCall8 system. The NurseCall8 system can be extended with a dementia system.
B80A Accompany Transmitter Features
B80A Accompany Transmitter Functions
Accompany: the B80A sends special codes when held near protected doors. This prevents unexpected dementia alarms when a patient, equipped with an S87L, crosses a controlled area and is accompanied by authorized staff. In this case, passing through the doors is unobstructed.
Alarm acknowledgment: a triggered call can be cleared by pressing the green button of the B80A Transmitter within 5cm of a triggered transmitter. The B80A’s LED confirms successful acknowledgement of the transmitter’s cleared call with a white flash. Care staff are then informed by their Nurse Call system that the alarm has been cleared.
A B80A set off in the immediate vicinity of a transmitter always triggers an acknowledgement transmission from that transmitter to the Nurse Call installation.
