Product Overview

AliMed Early Warning Sensor Pad

Early Warning Sensor Pad


Most wheelchair and chair sensing alarm devices employ a pressure-activated sensor pad, usually located in the seat, or a pull-cord mechnically fastened to the patient. Cords can be cumbersome to reinstall once activated and are often deliberately disconnected by the patient. Pressure pads inevitably compromise the benefits of a pressure relieving cushion. Most importantly, both devices activate once the person has risen from the chair. Therefore, they don't provide early warning.

This back sensor detects the first stages of rising. People tend to lean forward before getting up. This movement activates the back alarm sensor, giving the caregiver advanced warning. Once the alarm sounds, it is easy for the patient to reseat without endangering him or herself. Simply mount the sensor pad high on the seat back to install.

Sacral sitting and forward sliding are problems common to wheelchair users. Sacral sitting can compromise a resident's ability to function independently and can cause increased pressure on sacral region risking skin breakdown. This pad rests low on the seat-back where it can detect sacral sitting. As the patient slides forward, pressure is released from the pad and an alarm sounds. Since sacral sitting generally does not indicate an immediate safety hazard, the alarm can be "desensitized" by setting the hidden switch to "delay" rather than "instant response." A gentle chime tone can also be used.

Features a stainless steel clip for mounting to the chair, low-battery warning light and high/low volume switch. Choice of two alarm sounds. Uses one 9-volt battery (included). The 8" x 12" sensor pad is encased in a black mounting bag.
