Care monitor - Actual information about sleeping behaviour and nightly unrest
Placed by Joyce de Laat for Innovate Dementia at 2014-07-16
Within the Innovate Dementia Living Labs several pilot sessions take place to further test, develop and evaluate new innovative products and services for people living with dementia. One of those products that have been tested within our project is the Care Monitor. This is a monitor which provides actual information about sleeping behaviour and nightly unrest for caregivers and family members.
Several applications are developed for this care monitor like the BedLeave & Wandering system; a reliable bed-exit and wandering system.
Via a high-tech sensor, discreetly placed under the conventional matress, is being registrated when a client has left the bed or when the client hasnt returned to bed within the preset time. These alarms are being transferred via existing nurse call systems.
You can find out more about this application and first project results by watching the YouTube film or visit the website.
