The New Echo® Bed Pad & Transmitter is a bed leaving alarm that sends a signal to the EchoChime300™ receiver (or Echo® Vibrating Pager™) to alert a carer or spouse that a patient or user has risen from the bed pad. The alert will automatically reset with return to the bed pad.
It can be difficult for carers to monitor patients, they could fall out of bed or, if suffering from dementia, may be prone to wandering off. Or the patient may need a call button to request assistance during the night.
The Bed Pad plugs easily into a Sensor Pad Transmitter (or call button), which is inturn paired with the chime receiver or vibrating pager. The alert time can be selected to activate either:
- after 3 seconds or
- after 10 minutes
The bed pad sits under the bed sheet. When the user lays down, the red LED lights on the transmitter to acknowledge detection, the alarm is set. When the user leaves the bed, a signal is sent from the transmitter to the receiver, the chime receiver will alert if the user rises from the pad and does not return within the selected time. The receiver is alerted with either lound sounding, flashing or vibrating alert which makes it suitable for people who have a hearing or a visual impairment. If the user returns to the pad within 3 seconds or 10 minutes the pad will be reset.
When set to 10 minute alert, this allows the user time to rise from the bed pad and return within the set time frame without alerting the carer. Settings can be selected in the tamper proof battery compartment and be set independently to the user/ carer requirements.
The chime receiver and vibrating pager operate on the 868Mhz frequency with a range of up to 300 meters in open field. There is a choice of sound only alert, flash only alert, flash and sound alert, flash and vibrate, sound and vibrate etc.. and a choice of melodies, with excellent loudness and wide range of tones. The visual icons on the chime unit indicate the source of activation and has a 4 to 1 capability; up to 4 transmitters (bed pads) can signal to one chime or pager receiver.
Transmitters are individually digitally paired with the receivers (65535 combination codes) to avoid interference.
The transmitter can be used as a call button when connected to the bed pad and alternatively the transmitter can be used alone as a call button for a carer patient alert. A lanyard is provided with the transmitter. (The call button can be disabled).
