Seizure Bed Monitor System
The top selling seizure muscle contraction monitor and currently in use in over 60 countries worldwide.
Emfits tonic-clonic seizure monitor is used for detecting & notifying a caregiver if the person with epilepsy experiences a tonic-clonic seizure.
It also monitors an individual's presence in bed and will give notification if the person leaves the bed or does not return to the bed within a certain amount of time.
The Emfit tonic-clonic monitor consists of two main components: a flexible & durable bed sensor placed under the mattress & a bed side control monitor with sophisticated software. Together, they detect the micro-movements of a person lying on the bed - even heart beat and breathing and the faster movements such as muscle spasms when a person has a tonic-clonic seizure.
The bed sensor does not have a weight limitation, it is suitable for adults & children.
The monitor is not diagnostic tool; it merely senses body movement that is typical of a Tonic Clonic seizure. The monitor will not recognise absence or any other type of seizure.
The mat should be positioned at chest height, below the mattress or below a mattress topper. It should not be in direct contact with the bed occupant and shoul dnot be covered merely by a sheet. Secure the sensor using double-sided tape or Panduit straps. masking tape, Sellotape or strapping should be avoided becuase they leave sticky residue.
Slat beds are not suitable and sprung base and securiung the sensor to this. Ajustable (articulated) beds can be used provided the sensor is not across a hinged area and is under the occupant's chest.
Clean the sensor, cables and Controller with a damp cloth, neutral cleaning agent or a mild disinfectant. Always disconnect power and any Nurse Call cables before cleaning.
The sytem should be tested on intallation and then at least weekly. Ensure the system is powered and the tap the mattress (or mattress topper) above the senor in a rhythmic fashion, rather like you would pat a small dog . After 13 seconds or tapping, the alarm should sound. (or after whatever time delay has been set.)
