Fall risk patients, in stroke and orthopedics ward are provided with movement aware wrist band tag, coupled with bed occupancy monitors. The bed occupancy monitor consists of a bed pressure pad placed underneath the mattress of the user and an alert is raised should the user get out of bed and not return by a certain time. The sensor can also raise an alert if the user doesn’t go to bed by a particular time or doesn’t get up by a certain time in the morning. The Bed Occupancy Sensor detects if the bed is occupied or unoccupied during set times and will detect if your patient has not gone to bed, has gotten up from bed and not returned within a certain time frame, or has not gotten up in the morning, thus alerting caregivers to potentially unusual or dangerous situations. If any of these situations are detected, the sensor will trigger an alarm and alert an onsite caregiver. Bed Occupancy Sensor provides an early warning to caregivers by alerting the caregiver that a patient has left their bed and not returned within a defined period of time, indicating a possible fall.
The patient will be provided with a BLE Patient Tag with/without a panic button that can be worn as a wristband or around the neck based on requirement. These tags come with on-board accelerometers that help detect sudden movements like a fall. When a fall is detected, Trackerwave's system connects quickly to the nearest caregiver with the help of a BLE Coaster, even if the patient is unconscious or unable to move. The nearest caregiver will know the location of the fall and can immediately act upon.
