What is it?
Our most advanced monitor, the Alert-iT Guardian is comprehensively equipped to ensure optimum support across a wide and complex range of seizure patterns including SUDEP risk, vocal seizures, incontinence, vomiting plus bed and chair vacation. Meeting the stringent needs of professional healthcare environments, it is also highly suitable for domestic use when caring for those with less straightforward symptoms.
The Guardian’s extensive range of settings ensures precise adjustment to your individual needs, and the monitor is compatible with virtually all types of bed, including profile frames and airflow mattresses.
The Bed Movement sensor is placed beneath the mattress and is used to analyse the extent and frequency of movement. An alarm is raised if the sensor detects a lack of normal movement associated with breathing, or an increase in the occupant’s motions indicating a possible seizure. A learning mode allows the unit to record the individual’s normal overnight activity to establish the safe criteria.
Sound is detected via an internal microphone that detects gasps, clicks or groans.
The presence of moisture in the bed is identified through a sensor-equipped comfortable cotton bed sheet or pillowcase. Unlike plastic, the material will not induce sweating and hence reduces sores and false alarms.
The Chair and Bed Vacation sensors take the form of slim pressure mats which fit beneath a cover sheet, or as a discreet PVC pressure ribbon. The Guardian can then be configured to raise an immediate alarm when the occupant leaves the bed, or a delayed alarm that will alert carers should the bed remain vacant for too long.
Cotton Sheet for Moisture Detection
What is it?
The enuresis sensor is a machine washable cotton sensor pad placed between the bedding and the mattress for incontinence detection.
Size: Sensing area size 900x600mm (total width 1600mm)
Absorbency: 5ml before triggering
Cleaning: Machine washable recommended 40 degrees (no fabric conditioner)
Detection: Enuresis, excessive perspiration, salivation, and vomit
I would highly recommend the pulse companion to anyone who has epilepsy. It is definitely a device that can be trusted and I like that you can set perimeters to the individuals requirements”
