Inside the mat is the Contact Sheets, which is the part which triggers the alarm. Over time, the Contact Sheets can wear down and will need to be replaced. We supply spare internal Contact Sheets for if they wear out, which means you no not need to purchase an brand new product. We recommend buying spare Contact Sheets with your order. The spare parts available for this product are:

There are two options with regard to the Alarm alerting Carers:
- Sounding Alarm Box – An Alarm Box which makes a sound
- Nurse Call Plug – This plugs into the nurse call system and sets off the Carers’ pagers
The Sounding Alarm Box has variable volumes. The Nurse Call version plugs into the nurse call system and comes with a double adapter. This allows for a normal nurse call button to still be used in conjunction with the alarm. Both options come with a 16′ cable. Also available is a 32′ Extension Cord. Extension cords can be linked together so that the alarm box can be placed virtually anywhere. Most facilities keep the alarm box in the corridor, but some have wired it through the ceiling, across other rooms to the nurses’ station.

Patient Stand Up Alarms can be a very helpful way of monitoring a patient without physical or chemical restraining. They are normally used with people who stand up from a chair or get out of bed and could fall over. Sometimes the patient may be able to walk but due to dementia and mobility issues, they may put themselves or others in danger.
Handle with Care. Do not walk in high heel shoes, use walking sticks, walking frames or place other sharp or blunt objects on the Mat
People can fall in a variety of different ways. Pelican makes no express or implied guarantee that a patient will not sustain an injury.
