According to the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC), each year, one in every three adults age 65 and older falls and over 2 million will be treated in an emergency room.
Early notification to a caregiver when a resident is about to get up or wander can help prevent falls. With the use of a bed alarm system, when the alarm sounds, caregivers can quickly go to the aid of a patient before they get out of bed or a chair.
Preventing falls among older adults is a growing concern.
OMG Solutions specializes in fall monitor alarms for caregivers monitoring residents and or loved ones.
How our fall prevention products work:
Our fall prevention and exit alarm products are simple and easy-to-use. Plug a weight-sensing bed or chair pad into an exit alarm monitor and place sensor pad under the resident in a bed or on a wheel chair. When they attempt to get up, the caregiver is notified either quietly by pager, audibly by a bed or chair exit alarm, hallway monitor or a central monitoring unit in a remote location. Floor mats are placed next to the bed or doorway to prevent exits.
Smart Caregiver specializes in all aspects of fall prevention products, mobility monitoring, anti-wandering and quiet fall prevention solutions.
