Stand-Up Chair or Wheel Chair Alarm They are normally used with people who stand up from a chair or get out of bed and could fall over. However, sometimes the patients may be able to walk, but due to dementia, they may put themselves or others in danger.
This item warns staff that the patient is about to stand up or has stood up. The alarm noise is near the patient and this may help the patient to remember not to stand up, as the noise will stop if they sit down again.
There is a slight delay built into this alarm so that if weight is temporarily taken off the pad, i.e. to slightly change the seating position, it will not alarm. The delay is around one second.
Spare internal contact sheets are available.
The alarm cord length is 1m. and the sounding alarm version of this alarm is powered by batteries.
Cleaning: Wipe the internal beige vinyl cover clean with a mild hospital-grade disinfectant. Allow to dry before use. Hand or machine wash the outer Velour cover up to 80C,and air or tumble dry on a cool setting, ensuring the drum is also cool. The internal Contact Sheets cannot be cleaned.
Warranty: 6 months.
Warning: When using a double adaptor, if the Patient's Nurse Call button is removed from the adaptor, then the automatic Nurse Call system may not alert staff. There may be occasions when the facility does not want the patient to have a Nurse Call button as they may have dementia and be pushing the button for no reason. We understand that the Patients should always have access to a Nurse Call button, so if this is removed, we recommend documenting this in their care plan. If the Patient's Nurse Call button is removed then the Pelican Stand Up Alarm can be plugged directly into the wall socket without using the double adaptor.
