Alarms, Occupancy, Chair/Wheelchair

Definition : Occupancy alarms designed to activate audible and/or visual signals when patients attempt to get out of their chairs or wheelchairs. These alarms typically consist of pressure pad sensors placed on top of or beneath the seat of a chair or wheelchair. These alarms are deployed to determine the patient's location and are connected to an electronic control unit; some chair/wheelchair occupancy alarms can interface with nurse call systems providing remote alarms. Chair/wheelchair occupancy alarms are used to alert caregivers that a patient has or is attempting to move. Chair/wheelchair occupancy alarms can help reduce the likelihood of falls and can promote speedy assistance to patients who have already fallen by alerting caregivers that patients who should not get out of their chairs unassisted are doing so.

Alert Care Inc

Alert Care's AMBULARM has been used by caregivers as a simple, cost effective way to reduce patient falls and restraint usage. In that period more than 2,000 health care facilities have used nearly 100,000 AMBULARMS. AMBULARM benefits include the reduction of restraints and lowering falls by 30% or more on selected nursing stations. The AMBULARM was designed to support hospitals and nursing homes interested in Patient Fall Prevention and Reducing the Use of Restraints. Our experience indicates a hospital averages one fall incident per bed per year. While about one third of institutional falls occur with patients who are restrained, two thirds of falls reported in hospitals and nursing homes are reported from patients who are not in restraints.
