Raphael-EvaCare fall prevention
The Raphael-EvaCare offers two solutions. On the one hand it is an evacuation mat which is placed under the matrace.
On the other hand the EvaCare is equipped with sensors, which trigger an alarm in case someone is about to leave the bed.
According to typical movement patterns the Raphael-EvaCare sensors trigger an alarm when a person which tends to slip is about to get up from the matrace.
Due to that, the nurse can assist the resident even before the bed has been left.
This significantly reduces the risk of slipping and injury.
For a functional system at least 3 sensor stripes are necessary. These are placed under the matrace of the patient. A receiving unit evaluates the data from the sensors and triggers an alarm, when the weight moves from the bed centre to the edge of the bed. The Raphael-EvaCare can be used as stand alone system or integrated in a complet wander prevention system.
Further advantages of the Raphael-EvaCare:
It is made to be retrofitted at a nursing bed and works independently form the type of bed or matrace. Furthermore, the sensors adapt their sensibility to loss or gain of the weight of the patient.
