Easy to Use
falls-guard™ has three alarm tones to make it easier for staff to identify which patient is attempting to leave their bed. It is powered by 3 standard AA batteries and is attached to the bed with clips, which enable the unit to be located in a position convenient for staff but inaccessible to the patient.
A Flexible System
The cushion and cover slip easily onto the bed rail adapter, which is then hooked over the bed rail. The bed rail adapter fits most sizes and styles of bed rail. Each Absolute falls-guard™ kit is supplied with two of each component, enabling both sides of the bed to be monitored simultaneously.
