Epilepsy Bedside Companion
The P154xA Bedside Monitor unit is capable of detecting Spasm induced Bed Movement, sounds associated with distress and Bed Vacation by the addition of the necessary sensors. Any distress condition is immediately communicated via a fail-safe radio link, or by wired connection to a Life Line unit The pager can support up to 8 Bedside Monitors. The Bed Movement sensor (P114) is well proven and one of the most reliable on the market. It can assist with even small children exhibiting single limb spasms.
The Sound Sensing uses an optional external microphone (P158), which can be easily adapted for a wide range of use. The system is designed to be sensitive to repetitive bursts of sound a client may exhibit during a seizure or severe distress, but to be insensitive to continuous background noise (eg radios and TVs).
The Bed Occupany detector (P143C) can either alert the carer immediately the client gets out of bed, or it can be set to allow the client an acceptable period out of bed (eg for a bathroom visit) and will only sound the alarm if they fail to return. The settings are clear and easy to follow, being mainly a time delay to differentiate between normal and abnormal movement and sound. A version capable of Enuresis Monitoring (P154B) is also available.
