TABS reduces the risk of falls

Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

TABS mobility monitors from Wanderguard help reduce the risk of falls and ease the concerns of busy members of staff and family. A good fall management programme should aim to safely maintain a resident’s independence and well-being with minimal intrusion, expense and complication. TABS mobility monitors meet those criteria and fit perfectly with a care facility’s efforts to reduce the risk of falls. This restraint-free monitor sounds an alarm when a resident leaves a bed, chair, room or wheelchair. A complete line of TABS mobility monitors and accessories is available from Wanderguard to help meet the individual needs of residents. Residents who have a tendency to wander will benefit from Wanderguard’s First Q Wanderer Support System. This consists of a water-resistant bracelet that will automatically alert care staff when the monitored resident is exiting the building. Two antennae modules are placed on either side of a door and a control unit is placed on the wall or in the ceiling above the door. Modules
