Epilepsy Safe-Bed Under Mattress Sensor
Since our appointment in 2005 by Emfit the manufacturer of the amazing bed sensor to monitor a Tonic Clonic seizure we have placed thousands of units into homes. This has been with the full support of all the Australian epilepsy associations in all states.Caring for our loved ones is a high priority as well as giving the family the piece of mind that the Emfit bed sensor will constantly monitor any possible threat to the ones that mean the most to them
The Emfit laboratory in Finland pioneered the Quasi-Piezoelectric L-4060SL sensor, the patented dynamic thin film ferroelectric sensor; it is a state-of-the-art monitoring system that will monitor from under the mattress a sleeping adult or child who is at risk of a convulsive tonic clonic seizure.
The new, patented sensor technology detects and distinguishes between normal movements from strong muscle jerking such as tonic-clonic seizures.
The sensor also acknowledges the presence and absence of micro-movements caused by a persons breathing and heart beating. So not only does the sensor give notification to a caregiver when the person has the clonic phase of a tonic-clonic seizure but also when the person leaves the bed (feature can be disabled) by a fall or not returning to their bed within a given time.
The controller D-1090-2G has an audible alarm with adjustable volume and a dry-contact relay output for connection to a personal pager for a family member that lives in another part of a home. If an adult wishes to retain their independence by living alone the D-1090-2G controller will alert our Lifeminder which will automatically send a text message with google maps for location and dial preprogrammed telephone numbers.
