More Information


  • The monitor and sensor padsare not a substitute for visual monitoring. The system DOES alert caregivers of potential risks, but it DOES NOT prevent falls. The monitor also indicates when a patient needs assistance.
  • Use the system as part of your overall fall protection program, and set up protocols such as logging the date the sensor pad is first used. This date should be indicated on the pad itself and in patients records. If someone else uses the sensor pad, the first date of use should be recorded in that patients chart.
  • Assess each patient or resident to determine whether he or she will be uncooperative and possibly thwart the alarm system.
  • Ensure the monitoring system is working before each use. Double check the instructions for sensor pad such as making sure the pad is flat at all times. Other precautions about sensor pads include the possibility that they have been exposed to moisture and excessive wear and tear on the pads or cords.
  • Make sure sensor pad air intake (neck€š of chair or over-mattress sensor pad) is clear and not blocked. Air must flow freely in and out of sensor pad for alarm to function. Make sure liquid does not enter at neck€š of sensor pad, as this will damage it. If needed, use an incontinence pad to protect sensor pad from urine or other liquids.
  • To make the system most effective, respond to alerts immediately.
  • The sensor pads (and thus the monitor) are not effective for users who weigh less than 70 lbs.

Monitor Setup:

  • Slide the battery compartment to open it, and install the 9V alkaline battery included. Set the volume, tone and delay inside the battery compartment. Once controls are set, slide compartment cover closed until it snaps€š shut.
  • To attach to wheelchair or bed, thread the chair strap (included) through the bracket on back of monitor.
  • Connect the sensor pad plug into the Pad Jack on the bottom of monitor. (The alarm will be activated if the sensor pad plug is disconnected from the jack.)
  • Before each use, test the system. Do this by firmly pressing down on the sensor pad for two seconds. Remove the pressure and the red flash should show on the monitors indicator, at the same time the alarm tone or voice message should activate.
  • After testing, reset the monitor by pressing the reset button 3 times within 2 seconds. If possible test the system with the patient sitting or lying on the sensor pad. When pressure is put back on the sensor pad, the alarm signal will automatically go off€š¦ as long as the system is working properly. This procedure reminds patient to stay on the sensor pad and alerts the caregiver that there is a risk of patient falling.

Check alerts before and during use:

  • Green flash stays on when pad is connected properly. Green flash goes off when pad is lost, not there or faulty.
  • Amber flash indicates that battery is low.
  • Red flash and alarm tone or recording indicate that the patient has moved off the pad or is standing.


  • Before each use: check to see if the battery is low. If the low battery light on the front of monitor is flashing, replace 9V alkaline battery immediately. Also verify that mounting clip of the monitor is securely attached to chair or bed. Only use the Patterson Medical AC Adapter approved for use with this product.
  • Do Not immerse monitor or sensor pad in water or liquid. If pad accidentally gets wet, replace immediately.
