STEP ONE

 

A. The Sens-Ex® patient specific mat is placed on top of the support surface to be used, Sens-Ex® works equally well on static & dynamic surfaces.

B. The Guardian Sentry™ patient monitoring system utilises a proximity sensing technology called Sens-Ex® which detects ultra-low frequency chemical electrical signals produced by the human body to "switch" on the patient monitor to protect the patient, as the patient attempts to leave the support surface, the system will alert staff.

C. Bed mattress, chair, or other support surface

D. Sens-Ex® has been manufactured into a waterproof sensor mat, no special cleaning is required and the system can be used on incontinent patients. There is no minimum or maximum weight limit meaning it can be used on all patient types.

E. If the patient triggers am alarm, this is relayed to the paging system, mobile device or nurse-call system for nurse response.

STEP TWO

 

The patient monitor sends an alarm signal wirelessly to the pager, a mobile device; the nurse-call system or all three if required alerting the staff that attendance is required.

STEP THREE
