New Digital Care Assistant
SafeSense® 3 is the new, digital care assistant from wissner-bosserhoff. It consists of a completely contactless, patented sensor pad, which is positioned under the mattress and records even the smallest changes in pressure in real time. This allows the movement activity of residents or patients to be recorded and the visualised data can be used to draw valuable conclusions about their individual movement profile.
Hazards such as decubitus and falls can be detected at an early stage and corresponding warning messages can be recorded silently as desired or forwarded as an active DECT call. The declared aim of this new technology is to reduce the number of patrols and custodial measures and to increase patient and resident safety.
