Our monitoring system detects a dementia or elderly person leaving the bed by their predictive body position (getting up, sitting on the bedside, standing) and sends a message to caregivers immediately. The system helps communication between caregivers and care-receivers and among caregivers so that caregivers can locate care-receivers easily and be informed of whether or not care-receivers are in danger.
The monitoring system helps the nursing care staff in the following ways:
◾Detects signs of a care-receiver leaving the bed.
◾Sends a message quickly to nursing care staff and their office.
◾Allows nursing care staff to talk to care-receivers through cell phones.
◾Enables nursing care staff to monitor care-receivers through their cell phones.
◾Can be connected to existing mat sensors and nurse call systems.
◾Monitors several care-receivers at the same time.
◾Lets several givers use the system at the same time.
