- dementia protection and personal security
With KNOP's positioning system for dementia and personal security, it is possible to see where a person is.
An area is secured by setting up a number of position rods, POS901, typically set up at entrance and exit doors and in corridors, so that the unit can register a position indication on alarm transmitters, e.g. TX901AP, that pass by.
If the positioning system is used as dementia protection, an alarm with the resident's name and position is sent to staff when a resident with a dementia transmitter, e.g. TX901AP, passes a position bar, POS901, which they are not allowed to pass.
Furthermore, POS901 can lock doors to areas where they are not allowed to be or lock exit doors. Thus, the same door can be unlocked for visitors, staff and non-demented residents, but locked for dementia residents. This gives greater freedom in the care home.
Positioning can also help to secure staff who are at risk of being threatened or assaulted in the course of their daily work. When staff send an alarm, for example by activating a discreet alarm button, or by sending an emergency call on e.g. RX901B, or their fall alarm is activated, other staff receive the position of the alarm, after which they can come to the aid of their colleague.
By setting up multiple position bars, the accuracy of the position indication can be increased.
With POS901L and an external loop, a larger outdoor area can be "monitored"
POS901 can be used with all products in KNOP's 901 series with position.
