Smart Fall Monitors can be helpful in creating an accurate picture of a resident’s mobility by notifying caregivers directly whenever they attempt to move about. This behavior can the be easily documented and used to assess a resident’s true mobility.
Fall mobility monitors, in addition to alerting caregivers of situations that could result in a fall, can also help to assess a person’s pattern of movements and activity without direct observation and in an unobtrusive way. New developments in mobility monitors allow caregivers to track a senior’s activities—for example, how many times the senior gets up to go to the restroom and at what time—and accurately assess their needs. – Natalie Miller – See more at: Homecare
