In Reply to: please help me find pressure mats posted by Cyndi on March 21, 2000 at 11:59:50:
: My grandmother is 91 years old and has been diagnosed with senile dementia. We currently are taking care
: of her at home. The problem we are having is that she is so quiet that she gets out of bed unassisted and
: is very weak. We are afraid she will fall. We heard about a thing called a pressure mat which can be placed on
: the bed and when she gets up, it will sound an alarm. I can't seem to find anyone who knows anything about
: these. Does anyone know who manufactures these items or where I may look to find one. We can not
: use a personal alarm that attaches to her clothes, because she just takes them off. Any help would be
: greatly appreciated. Thank you.
We are manufacturers of floor pressure mat sensors, although we do not make a suitable mat for this application it is possible we could develope one. I would very interested to know if you have found anything suitable.
