In order to help healthcare institutions to manage more efficiently the alarms launched by motion sensors, Neat Group has market a presence sensor in bed with innovative features that prevents service managers from receiving false alarms and allows the nurse to ask for help if the patient has a contingency.

Conventional devices, based on motion sensors to trigger alarms are designed to detect the presence of, not only the patient, but also anyone who comes into their range, which, each time a professional health enters the room to asist the resident, the alarm is released, alerting service managers who cannot immediately identify if it is a patient who has left the bed and need help or a false alarm caused by the presence of a nurse.


The new presence sensor allows the health professional to temporarily disable the system performance while attending the patient in his room and rehabilitate it as he leaves the room.
This device is not the traditional bed sensor that is placed under the mattress of the patient, but is a modern bed occupancy sensor consists of three components with innovative features: a motion detector, a device with three colored buttons green, red and yellow and the alarm receiver.
