Sounding Alarm Box Version and Nurse Call Version
There are two options with regard to the alarm alerting Carers:
- Sounding Alarm Box – An alarm box which makes a sound
- Nurse Call Plug – This plugs into the nurse call system and sets off the Carers’ pagers
The Sounding Alarm Box has variable volumes and comes with a 5m / 16′ cable. Also available is a 10m / 32′ Extension Cord. Extension cords can be linked together so that the alarm box can be placed virtually anywhere. Most facilities keep the alarm box in the corridor, but some have wired it through the ceiling, across other rooms to the nurses’ station.
The Nurse Call version plugs into the nurse call system and comes with a double adapter. This allows a normal nurse call button to still be used in conjunction with the alarm.

General Alarm Information
Patient Stand Up alarms can be a very helpful way of monitoring a patient without physical or chemical restraining. They are normally used with people who stand up from a chair or get out of bed and could fall over. Sometimes the patient may be able to walk but due to dementia and mobility issues, they may put themselves or others in danger.
Floor Alarms are the most recommended products in our alarm range for people getting out of bed. This is because they generally give the earliest warning of when someone is getting out of bed. When someone goes to get out of bed, they can have the weight of their feet on the alarm, setting it off before they actually lift their bottom off the bed. If they were using the Bed Alarm that is placed on top of the mattress, it will not sound until after the patient gets out of bed. Floor Alarms can give vital extra time when someone is starting to stand up.
