Stand-Up Doorway Alarm

Stand-Up Alarms can be a very helpful way of monitoring a patient's movement, without physical or chemical restraining. They are normally used with people who stand up from a chair or get out of bed and could fall over. However, sometimes the patients may be able to walk, but due to dementia, they may put themselves or others in danger.

The Doorway Alarm can be used to monitor several people in a lounge room or if used in the bathroom, the occupant can freely walk around in the room, to their ensuite etc, but the alarm will only sound if they leave the room.

It is important to make sure there are no gaps either side of the pad when it is placed in the door. This is to ensure that the alarm will sound and it will only go off when weight is put on it.
