Product Description

Special Pricing!

Package includes:
Bed/chair alarm with long term bed and chair sensor pads.

Alarm sounds alert from within the patient's room.


Features:
Alarm features an adjustable volume (70-80 db), an easy reset button, a status indicator, and a low battery indicator.
Sensor pads are made of soft cushioned vinyl, are incontinence resistant, and are easy to wipe clean (see care instructions on pad).


How to choose the package that's right for your needs from the Product Options above:

Choose to add a second alarm: 
Package comes with one alarm that you move between the bed pad and chair pad as necessary.  
or
Add a second alarm so each pad has a dedicated alarm (+$30).


Choose to add a Protective Alarm Cover:
If intending to use in a facility or in the care of multiple patients, adding a Protective Alarm Cover to your system (+$6.95) is highly recommended.


Choose your bed pad size (chair pad is one size only, 10" x 15"):  
10" x 30" pad - for a patient weighing 120 lbs. or more, being used on a firm mattress*.
or
20" x 30" pad (+$10) - for a patient weighing less than 120 lbs. Also recommended when using with a hospital bed, memory foam, gel, air or Tempur-Pedic® mattress*.


Choose to add an AC adapter:
Alarm operates on a 9 volt battery (not included). 
or
Add the optional AC Adapter (+$9.95).  If adding to your package, we recommend keeping batteries in the alarm as a backup in case of an electrical power failure. 


How to use:
Place the bed pad horizontally across the patient's back area.  Connect pad's 6 ft. cord to bed alarm, clipping securely with a connection similar to a phone jack.  Run cord alongside the mattress.  Hang the bed alarm on the bed or mount on a wall (hanging hardware included), or place in a convenient location next to the bed.  When patient lifts their weight from the pad, the bed alarm will sound.  Silence the alarm by pressing the reset button as you assist your patient.  When you are ready to activate the system again, place the patient back onto the pad.  The system is reactivated and ready to respond as soon as they lift their weight from the pad again.

When your patient is ready to sit in their chair, disconnect the alarm from the bed pad, and transfer to the 7" x 15" chair sensor pad*.  It's just as easy as that!  A simple connection.  And now you will know if they are trying to get up out of their chair.  


*Note on using with Hospital Bed, Memory Foam, Gel, Air or Tempur-Pedic Mattresses/Cushions:
Using this system with certain types of mattresses or cushions, such as hospital bed, memory foam, Tempur-Pedic®, air pressure alternating, gel cushions, or other types designed to distribute pressure away from the body, can cause false alarm responses or delayed alarm issues.  Our 20" x 30" bed sensor pads are more effective when used with these types of mattresses, so we recommend purchasing the larger pad, regardless of patient weight.  If experiencing issues with a chair sensor pad being used with a cushion, we recommend removing the cushion.


Warranty:
One year manufacturer warranty.  Long term pads are expected to last a year and are warrantied as such. The pads should be replaced after that time.  To order a new pad, see our Replacement Standard Sensor Pads.

Manufactured by Smart Caregiver.


This complete alarm with long term bed and chair sensor pads package starts at $72.95, including free ground shipping!

So easy to use
Glen (Paso Robles) 7/28/2014 12:05 PM
We've been using this alarm for a little over a month now, and it's incredibly easy to deal with. Mom actually remembers when she hears the alarm to hold tight and wait for us to come help her do whatever it is she's trying to get up for. We're really lucky that she's so agreeable. I definitely recommend getting the extra alarm monitor. It's worth 30 bucks to not have to mess with the cord clips with my own arthritis issues.

Ok, does the job
Mara (Des Moines) 4/14/2014 10:29 AM
This bed and chair alarm was working great, up until the nursing home my fall risk mom is in called to say it was broken. When I went to visit, they showed me that the little plastic piece on the end of the chair pad cord was broken. The bed pad still works fine. How does that piece just break if the pad was on her wheel chair and never anywhere else? If it wasn't for that happening I'd give this more stars. Now I've got to deal with a broken chair pad. -----Response from Kerr Medical: The part of this customer's pad cord that broke, the plastic clip on the end, needs to be properly removed from the alarm unit when being disconnected. If a caregiver is not careful and pulls on the cord when disconnecting the clip, rather than depressing the prong holding it into the alarm unit port, that clip will eventually break. Just as you would not yank a phone cord out of a telephone jack, you cannot yank or pull on sensor pad cords. A strain relief is also provided on the alarm unit, to help avoid accidental damage to the clip. The alarm unit's user instructions refer to this feature and recommend using it. Remember that caregivers who have paid for a product themselves will usually care for the product more gently. If you are purchasing for use in a facility, it is very important that the staff is properly trained on how to use this product to avoid damage. End user damage is not covered by manufacturer warranty.

Worth the money
Linda D. (Pittsburgh) 2/4/2014 7:24 PM
I purchased this with two alarms, so I wouldn't have to deal with switching one alarm between the pads. Best buy I've made in the last few months. I can actually fall asleep at night now and know that if my dad gets up in the middle of the night, I will be awoken by a (loud, I admit) noise, so I can make sure he's not on the floor. We've visited the ER after 2 falls, and let me tell you, that's been a lot more expensive, and it's taken dad a long time to heal from those.

Helps prevent husband from falling!
V Henson (Sent to us in October 2012) 3/7/2013 4:55 PM
This alarm is loud and certainly lets me know that my husband is trying to get up from the bed or the chair. I like the fact there are 2 pads, one for bed and one for chair. It's worked at keeping my husband from wandering and potentially falling.
