Stand Up Doorway Alarm [444D]
The Stand Up Doorway Alarm is placed in a doorway. It is triggered when someone stands on it.
It may be used to monitor several people in a lounge room. If used in the bathroom, the person can freely walk around in the room, to their ensuite etc, but the alarm will only sound if they leave the room.
About the Stand Up Doorway Alarm
The alarm is placed on the floor in the doorway.
The alarm has been made as thin as possible to help prevent trips. The material is 1.5mm / 0.06″ thick at the edge.
On the top is a wipeable lino material, and underneath is a miracle grip material to help the alarm stay in position when someone is standing on it.
It is important to minimize any gaps either side of the pad when it is placed in the doorway. This is to ensure that the alarm will sound and it will only go off when weight is put on it.
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 top of the cover clean with a mild hospital-grade disinfectant. Allow to dry before use. The internal Contact Sheets cannot be cleaned.
