Stand Up Chair Alarm [444C]
The Stand Up Chair Alarm alerts Carers when someone stands up from a wheelchair or chair. The alarm noise is near the patient and this may help the patient to remember not to stand up, as the noise will stop if they sit down again.
About the Stand Up Chair Alarm
The alarm pad comes in a soft velour cover on the top, and a non-slip rubber material underneath. There is a slight delay built into this alarm. This is so that if weight is temporarily taken off the pad it will not alarm. This is to allow people to slightly change the seating position. The delay is around one second.
General Alarm Information
Patient Stand Up alarms can be a very helpful way of monitoring a patient without physical or chemical restraining. They are normally used with people who stand up from a chair or get out of bed and could fall over. Sometimes the patient may be able to walk but due to dementia and mobility issues, they may put themselves or others in danger.
Floor Alarms are the most recommended products in our alarm range for people getting out of bed. This is because they generally give the earliest warning of when someone is getting out of bed. When someone goes to get out of bed, they can have the weight of their feet on the alarm, setting it off before they actually lift their bottom off the bed. If they were using the Bed Alarm that is placed on top of the mattress, it will not sound until after the patient gets out of bed. Floor Alarms can give vital extra time when someone is starting to stand up.
Wipe the internal beige vinyl cover clean with a mild hospital-grade disinfectant. Allow to dry before use. Hand or machine wash the outer Velour cover up to 80C (176°F), and air or tumble dry on a cool setting, ensuring the drum is also cool. The internal Contact Sheets cannot be cleaned.
