Patients that are unsteady on their feet, but still ambulatory are at increased risk of falling and may not be found for an extended period of time. The longer they are on the floor, the lengthier the recovery time. Additionally, staff and visitors can also be at risk of slipping, falling, or even require assistance in an emergency situation.
The RTLS duress system features tags with sensors capable of detecting sudden changes in vertical momentum, or even detect when the wearer is lying on a bed or floor. With the real-time tracking system in place, facilities can ensure that their patients and staff are always monitored and receive assistance as soon as they require it.
You can operate more efficiently, save on healthcare or legal costs, and provide a more immediate response to distressed patients. Our RTLS life alert system combines a wireless facility wide mesh network with lightweight RFID tags on wristbands. This system actively monitors the movement and status of wearers as they move throughout the facility; the RTLS fall alert is set up to send an autoalert to staff members when a patient falls out of bed or while walking. Our system can send a text alert to cell phones or mobile devices carried by staff.
Our RTLS senior alert tags offer multiple functions to make monitoring patients easier for healthcare providers. These cutting edge location tracking devices offer motion, position, and wristband removal sensors to identify when something happens with a specific patient
Our RTLS senior alert system is extremely accurate, allowing hospitals and nursing facilities to monitor the position of patients to within a submeter level of accuracy. Nurses will be able to see at a glance where someone has fallen and even, see the nearest staff member who can assess the patient quickly.
