This unique assistive device is designed to help keep individuals with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other neurological conditions safeAlzheimer's patients and individuals with dementia are known to wander off or get confused and frighten. This may make them anxious, causing them to move too quickly and accidentally fall from a chair or wheelchair. However, with the Break Away Lap Cushion with Alarm, caregivers are immediately alerted when the cushion is moved, keeping the patient safe and secure.
The Break Away Lap Cushion is equipped with a sensor attached to a magnetic strap used to secure the cushion to the arm of a chair or wheelchair. The magnetic strap is released when the patient rise up, breaking the strap's connection and activating the alarm. In turn, the caregiver or hospital staff is quickly alerted.
The soft Break Away Lap Cushion has an easy to clean vinyl covering and sits comfortably on the lap of the patient when used with a wheelchair or arm chair. The alarm unit feature an on/off switch, two sound levels (choose from an alarm or chime tone with either 85 dB or 100 dB) and a low-battery warning light. It uses a 9V battery (included). Six month limited warranty.
