The bed and chair occupancy sensor detects the change in weight when the occupant leaves the bed or chair.
This type of sensor is ideal for carers who wish to be alerted when the occupant leaves the bed or chair. This short length bed ribbon sensor fits neatly underneath the mattress or seat cushion and requires connection to a Touch-iT No Effort Personal Call Alarm (sold separately).
This bed occupancy sensor may not be suitable for restless sleepers.
Devices like these remove the need for regular nocturnal checks on vulnerable people, which disturb them and can cause unnecessary behavioural issues, particularly with sufferers of epilepsy and dementia.
