Why NB Safety Bed System?

    A patient fall is one of the most common adverse events that occur in long-term care facilities today. Every year, thousands of patients are injured by a fall after leaving their bed or chair. Studies have shown that more than one third of elders who are over 65 years old fall each year. Bed falls of elders or patients can lead to a more serious injury or illness without an instant help. The system is also helpful for those who suffer from dementia, cannot press a pendant to summon for help, who should not leave their bed without assistance. NB Safety Bed system reduces the nurses' workload by enabling an easy management over hundreds of beds and patients.

Bed Sensor
    How it works?
    When an unassisted person leaves the bed, the bed sensor sends the exit signal to the monitoring program by using high-tech wireless technology of ZigBee, WLAN, and CDMA. This wireless technology enables the system to be operated without any spatial limitation.
    The Sensor that is used in the NB Safety Bed System operates by detecting vital signs (heart rate & respiration), and not person's weight.
    This high-tech sensor is installed below mattress resulting long lasting sensor lifetime. The central monitoring program can control over hundreds of beds and its users' information (personal, medical, and bed-exit) in a single monitoring client program.
