Fall sensors, prevent injuries

Fall sensors; alert and prevent falls

Fall sensors are devices that can detect when a person has fallen or is about to fall and send an alert to a HCP. They are used to help prevent injuries from falls, which are a major risk for vulnerable patients.

Here are some of the advantages of using fall sensors with patients:

Reduced risk of injuries. Fall sensors can help to reduce the risk of injuries by alerting caregivers as soon as a fall occurs. All this allows for a quick response and can help to prevent serious injuries or someone having fallen not being discovered for a period of time.

Stop the fall before it happens.  Some sensors can alert the HCP earlier than the fall – such as chair sensors that can alert when a patient/resident is slipping down a chair. 

Increased peace of mind for HCP’s and families. Fall sensors can give peace of mind knowing that the patient is being closely monitored and that help is available in the event of a fall.

Improved quality of life. Fall sensors can help to improve the quality of life for vulnerable patients by giving them more independence and freedom. They can also help to reduce anxiety and stress about falling.

Reduced the need for admission/readmission. Fall sensors can help to reduce healthcare costs by preventing injuries and potentially hospitalisations.

We offer a range of different fall sensors that work with different systems that are installed in care homes and frailty wards.  We also offer ultra-low profile beds which means a patient that may frequently fall out of bed is far closer to the floor, and the sensor mat.

We offer a service where we visit a room or ward, discuss a particular patient or a number of patients and their particular vulnerabilities, then recommend fall sensors that are appropriate. 

Please get in contact here if that service is of interest.
