This package includes a deluxe, hospital grade chair alarm and a long term chair sensor pad. This system is commonly found in nursing facilities, and is perfect for home care use if a caregiver want a system just like what a facility used with their patient.
Alarm has a durable rubber cover and hanging strap, adjustable volume (output varies between 80-90 decibels), optional delay, adjustable tones, status and pad lost indicators (for safety), low battery indicator, and an optional tamper-proof setting called 'Caregiver Key' mode.
10" x 15" pad is made of a soft vinyl with a layer of foam inside¬†for comfort. Easy to clean and sealed to protect from issues with incontinence. You may place an incontinence sheet over the pad, but test the system thoroughly before putting in use.
This system is simple to install and use. The pad is placed on the chair seat beneath your patient. Our recommendation is that you place the pad toward the rear of the seat, so that when your patient is shifting their weight forward to stand up, the alarm will sound as soon as their weight is off the pad, giving you extra time before they stand and try to walk. Hang the alarm on a wheelchair or place on a side table. Before use, test the system by placing pressure on the pad. The alarm will beep twice to let you know it is operational. When pressure is removed from the pad, the alarm will sound.
Alarm operates on three (3) AA batteries (not included), or order the optional AC Adapter from the Product Options when adding to your cart (+$9.95). If adding to your package, we recommend keeping batteries in the alarm as a backup in case of an electrical power failure.
*Using this system with certain types of cushions, such as memory foam, gel cushions, or other ones designed to distribute pressure away from the body, can cause false alarm responses. When sensor pads are used on these surfaces, the cushions distribute body pressure away from the pads, which can cause the pad to think that the patient is no longer upon it, triggering an alarm. Conversely, these cushions can also cause delayed alarm issues. Please use caution when using with such cushions.
One year manufacturer warranty. Long term pads are expected to last a year and are warrantied as such. The pads should be replaced after that time. To order a new pad, see our Replacement Standard Sensor Pads.
