The Companion Monitor system is a compact solution that comprises of an epilepsy sensor that is placed under the mattress which is then connected to a bedside monitor. Bed movement detection technology will trigger an epilepsy medical alert if the sensor picks up movement associated with tonic clonic seizures. Additional sensors can be purchased to also detect sounds associated with seizures, urination, vomiting, or prolonged bed vacation.
The Companion Monitor is ideal for use at home or in care facilities to detect possible seizures that feature a strong presentation (e.g. tonic/clonic, Sounds, vomiting or Enuresis).
The Companion Monitor can be purchased in two options:
This option is ideal for a home or nursing environment. If the companion sensor detects seizure activity it will immediately send an alert to a pager so that parents or staff can attend. The pager has a range of up to 450 meters
- Careline Alarm
This option is perfect for someone who may spend long periods of time on their own, especially at night. If the Companion detects a seizure it will immediately activate a careline alarm installed in the home, enabling our 24/7 team at to handle the situation and summon emergency assistance.
The Enuresis Sensor (vomit or urination)
This is a comfortable thin cotton sheet placed on a mattress or pillow with embedded silver wires to detect moisture from urination or vomit. The sheet does not induce sweating, like plastic, and hence reduces sores and false alarms.
The monitor can be set to give either an immediate alarm when the occupant leaves the bed or only an alarm if the bed is vacant too long (which may indicate a collapse in the room). The normal epilepsy sensor mat is a pressure mat on top of the mattress but a range of other techniques are available for all client and mattress types.
The Sound Sensor is a special microphone that can detect sharp gasps, clicks or groans. The device, however, is insensitive to background noise such as talking, TVs, radios or vacuums. Alternatively, the sound level can be used for those who make continuous noises during distress.
