Located not far from the city of Bologna and managed by a Milan-based foundation, Irbema was chosen to provide a retirement home with systems dedicated to the care of the elderly, both self-sufficient and not.
The structure requires devices for the monitoring and the control of the facility's residents with Alzheimer's disease and behavioural disorder (wandering) while ensuring the patients' freedom of movement.
The structure has several floors and on each floor there is an access door to the stairs, which leads to the exit door outside the structure. It was therefore agreed to monitor the gates exit door from each floor, so that there is time to track the user before they arrive at the exit door outside.
The D-POS system consists of: sensors installed at the access doors to the facility, a wristband supplied to the facility guest and a Trex alarm signal receiver.
Once the guest has passed through the gate, the wristband sends an alarm signal (audible or vibrating) on the display of the Trex receiver alerting the operator.
Each bracelet worn by the user is customised through a identification code which appears on the display of the operator's receiver so that it identifies the user who is attempting to exit and immediately goes to the floor where the gate has been crossed, to prevent the user from leaving the facility.
Used by health and social workers, the Trex device is able to receive all alarms that are generated by devices worn by users and identify them on the display, ensuring that the operator can identify the point from which the alarm is transmitted, thus enabling him to intervene promptly.
The system ensures the mobility of the facility's guestscommunicating emergency events directly on the radio receiver that the operator can carry with him at all times.
Neat's bed check band is able to detect the patient moving away from their bed and from that moment, start a timer within which to allow him to manage his needs. The timer, easily programmableIt adapts to the patient's condition, and on its expiry in the event of non-return, warns of a possible emergency situation. The system ensures the mobility of the operator by communicating emergency events directly to the Trex receiver.
In addition to the devices, the facility was equipped with a software thanks to which events can be tracked and all information about locations, number of devices, and information sent by medical staff and guests can be recorded.
Tracking the quality of service allows the collection of all alarms sentIt will then be possible to check the response time from when the alarm is generated until the request is taken, so that the quality levels of patient care can be assessed.
