Title
(EN) Patient Alarm Systems And Device Therefor
Abstract
(EN)
A patient alarm system or a nurse call system suitable for use by patients with low dexterity such as sufferers of arthritis. The device is characterised by an actuator which is in the form of a deformable bladder and compressible with use of little force, and which in use operates a pressure switch thereby activating an alarm. The actuator can include a plurality of resiliently deformable bladders with different shapes and dimensions to provide the user with a preferred selection. These bladders can further include grip enhancing features such as a finger grip, and patient feedback means to reassure the patient that the alarm has been activated. Figure 2
