The Pelican Bed Fall Mat Alarm is designed to help prevent injury from bed falls and alert the carer if a fall or other movement occurs. It consists of a set of Contact Sheets (sensors) contained inside a padded mat that can be placed alongside the bed and a sounding alarm box that is placed some distance from the bed. The sensors detect movement and sets off the alarm when the occupant of the bed has either fallen onto the mat or stepped on the mat after getting out of bed. It is suitable for people who are at risk of falling out of bed or who may climb over the bedrails and then fall. For someone who is able get out of bed and walk it can act as an early warning system that the person is up because the alarm will be activated as soon as the person's feet touch the mat.
