MOTION SENSOR & PAGER
Wireless Mobility Monitoring
This system is complete: it contains one motion sensor and a wireless monitor. Nothing more is required.
This simple system comes complete with one motion sensor and one Caregiver Pager. The Caregiver Pager has an audible alert and is small enough to be carried in a pocket or clipped to a belt. This Motion Sensor Pager System alerts the caregiver wearing the pager of a resident’s activities when the resident interrupts the motion sensor’s infrared field, as long as they are within 300 feet of each other. The Motion Sensor may be mounted next to a bed to indicate when a resident arises, or by a doorway to indicate when a resident is approaching the door way.
Maintain effective awareness of activities without the use of pressure pads, floor mats or pull string devices.
No hard wiring between monitor and motion sensor.
Eliminate In-Room Alarm Noise
Monitors may be placed outside the room. Variable volume.
This is a one-to-one system

Motion Sensor and Pager System
Eliminate in room alarm noise with motion sensors that send signal to pagers and Central Monitor Unit. With motion sensors you can maintain effective awareness of resident activities without having to use sensor pads, pull-string monitors or floor mats. Motion sensor can be mounted next to bed to detect movement of resident or by a doorway to monitor exit. When resident gets up and movement is detected, signal is sent to the Central Monitoring Unit to alert caregiver.
Fall Prevention, Patient Monitoring, and Anti-Wandering Solutions
Fall Prevention is a great concern facing health care today. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has concluded that falls are the leading cause of injury deaths and the most common cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma among patients 65 years and older.1 Each year in the United States, nearly one third of older adults experience a fall.2 Recent compliance regulations, as outlined by the Joint Commission’s Patient Safety Goals and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) guidelines, have created increased urgency for the prevention of patient/resident falls.3
We can help health care facilities, as well as those caring for a loved one at home, to improve fall management by providing a number of useful products to be used in conjunction with a comprehensive fall management program. Patient safety alarms, have been highlighted by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) as a tool that can be used to promote improved monitoring of persons at risk for falling.4 When used properly, patient alarms can alert caregivers when a fall-risk candidate is on the move.
Alarms and other monitoring devices are particularly important when the person being monitored has Alzheimer's disease. The disease's progression will eventually effect balance more profoundly than simply aging; it will effect vision, especially depth perception. For these and other reasons associated with Alzheimer's, the likelihood of falling is increased in persons with the disease.
Other Alzheimer's symptoms, most notably wandering and sleep disorders, also increase the need for a well designed monitoring system.
