Using Fall Alarms For The Elderly

Taikhum Sadiq

Fall prevention alarms function like normal alarms but are basically equipped well enough to warn someone of a fall. There are various types of fall restraint alarms, such as pagers, wonder alarms, hair and bed patient alarms, pull cord alarms, etc. All function in various ways depending on the place they are installed. For example, the bed patient alarm is used to warn people if a person is falling off the bed or the chair. 

Some useful fall alarms for the elderly 

Proactive Velcro Seat Belt Sensor gives staff more time to respond to active patients attempting to leave their chairs. It is designed to alert staff before the patient gets up and remind the patient to be seated. The fastening Velcro alerts the staff, providing an extra safety margin for those more active wheelchair patients. 

Next is the AliMed Basic Magnetic Pull Cord Alarm is the most versatile of all alarms and comes with universal fitting for bed, chair, and toilet. It helps prevent falls and improves safety by alerting caregivers when someone attempts to exit a wheelchair or bed without assistance. Pulling the cord from any direction will dislodge the magnetic bed sensor and activate the alarm. In addition, it maintains patient dignity while on the toilet. 

The Drive Tamper Proof Pressure Sensitive Chair and Bed Patient Alarm alerts the caregiver with an audio alarm when a patient gets out of a chair or bed. The pressure-sensitive pad connects to the audio alarm. The alarm comes with a safety alert, an on-and-off switch, and a low battery warning. 

The Sammons Preston Magnetic Chair Alarm is designed to protect the patient from falling out of the chair. The magnet detaches whenever the patient is out of the chair, and the alarm sounds and quickly alerts the caregiver. The alarm triggers, and the red light illuminates when the magnet is pulled away from the alarm. To reset the alarm after it is triggered, you simply put the magnet back on it.
