The UMP Infrared Bed Monitor alerts the caregiver when an individual attempts to leave the bed or chair.
UMP designed the monitor to be used in nursing homes and medical facilities as well as home use. Unlike other monitors there are no cumbersome pads or uncomfortable cushions.The monitor uses infrared technology to discreetly monitor any movement from a bed or chair. The device alerts the caregiver by emitting a harmless infrared signal either by triggering an audible alarm or by sending an electronic signal to a nurse's station at a remote location through an existing nurse call system.
- A bed mounting bracket (5530-50) is also available that affixes monitor to most bed frames.
- When plugged into an existing nurse call cable (A510202) system the alarm can be silent in the resident's room while the alarm sounds at the nurse's station.
Both accessories are sold separately.
