Alerta Bed Alertamat Pressure Alarm Mat
Whether caring for someone at risk of falling out of bed, or a patient with dementia prone to wandering unattended, it's crucial to have an alarm system that lets you give the appropriate care as soon as possible. The Alerta Bed Alertamat Pressure Alarm Mat is the perfect tool for this, as it is a reliable and cost effective way to be immediately notified if a patient is at risk of falling or if they attempt to leave their bed.
Plug and Play
A durable and long lasting bed pressure mat, the Alertamat is designed with a simple 'plug and play' system, which allows the caregiver quick and easy set up in any hospital or care home scenario. Featuring a choice of a variety of plugs to make it compatible with any nurse call system, the Alertamat Bed Pressure Alarm Mat will be up and running immediately, and operating with ease.

How Does the Alertamat Work?
The Alertamat Bed Pressure Alarm Mat features a pressure sensor to detect when a patient leaves their bed in order to proactively give the carer advanced warning of any fall or attempt to leave the bed. The moment the patient falls or leaves the bed, it will instantly activate the nurse call system, allowing the caregiver to quickly check the patient's safety in a prompt fashion.
Can I Place the Alertamat Under a Mattress?
While the Alertamat may work when placed underneath thinner foam mattresses, we would recommend placing it on top of the mattress, possibly beneath a fitted sheet. This will ensure the sensor triggers the alarm immediately, avoiding the delays or false alarms that can sometimes occur when it is placed beneath a mattress.
Versatile to Suit Your Needs
The Alertamat Bed Pressure Alarm Mat features its own alarm monitor, so it can be used on its own as an effective fall prevention tool. Alternatively, this Bed Pressure Alarm Mat can be easily connected to any common nurse call system, allowing the care giver to choose between localised alerts, or centralised alerts to the entire nursing staff so that prompt patient care is ensured.
Once the patient is seen to and returns to bed, the alarm is automatically reset for further monitoring and care. The Bed Alertamat can be powered with a mains plug, and also by battery, providing superior versatility over other pressure alarm mats.
