WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The Bed Side Wedge Alarm Pad can be added to our Bed Side Wedges or Bed Side Wedge – One Side to alert Carers when a patient presses down on a Wedge while getting out of bed, or when they lean against a Wedge.
The Alarm Pad is available with a Touch Alarm Box, which sounds inside the patient’s room. Alternatively, a 10-meter Extension Cord can be used to take the Touch Alarm Box to another room.
For facilities with a Nurse Call Paging System, the Alarm Pad is available with a Nurse Call Plug to sound an alert through the system.
Usually, only one Alarm Pad is needed in a Wedge near the patient’s shoulders on the side of the bed they normally get out of.
Two Bed Side Wedge Alarm Pads can be joined together using a Y-Connector, which can be plugged into a single Touch Alarm Box or Nurse Call Socket. For people who want to use more than one Alarm Pad, the Alarm Pad & Y-Connector option is available in the drop-down menu. This can be added to an Alarm Pad with Touch Alarm Box or Alarm Pad with Nurse Call Plug.
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
Suitable for alerting staff or Carers if a patient is trying to get out of bed.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The Alarm Pad should be installed between the outer sleeve and the Wedge cushion. We recommend positioning the Alarm Pad underneath the Wedge so that if the patient pushes down on the Wedge while getting out of bed, the Alarm will alert the Carer.
Alternatively, it is possible to position the Alarm Pad on the side of the Wedge that faces the patient.
WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT MADE FROM?
Vinyl, foam, various electrical components.
The Alarm will not sound if the patient gets out of bed and does not touch the Wedge. If getting out of bed is a problem, we suggest using a Stand-Up Floor Alarm.
