The bed sensor mat will activate a text pager and or LED message display board when the person gets out of bed. Any number of sensor mats can be added, creating an effective falls prevention system.
There is nothing inside the mat except for air which means that it will last for years . It is placed underneath the bed mattress and even works underneath pressure relieving airflow mattresses.
The mat is connected to a sensor box with a small tube. Using Airlert technology, the sensor box will detect a change in air pressure within the mat as the person begins to get out of bed, making the sensor fast to react.
"After a year of constant use our unit showed a 12% reduction in falls and we won an award for for patient safety."

Benefits over a traditional pressure mat:
Longer-lasting - the sensor mat contains nothing except air making it extremely durable.
Reliable - the sensor mat covers entire area of the bed, reducing false alarms.
Faster response time because the sensor box detects reducing air pressure within the mat as the person begins to get up.
Discrete - the mat is hidden from view, placed underneath the mattress.
Reduced engineer call outs because of the simple design and year long battery life.
- If any users weighs under 5 stone (31kg) we can supply an extra sensitive control box.
