Because of this, we recommend to use TRUSTY BIP, a modern equipment which provides an invaluable service to families, doctors and patients alike, by bringing a final solution to the age-old problem of patient monitoring, wherever he goes.
This system can monitor up to 40 patients at the same by distance, and can be carried along with you, allowing to keep a watchful eye on patients even while away from them. This is done by equipping the patients with 900 MHz transmitting bracelets, which send continuous signals to Trusty Bip and can be worn by a patient without hassle.
When he leaves TRUSTY BIP’s operating range, or the place where he is supposed to be (home, hospital etc) the signal is no longer received, and the patient’s name is displayed on the display, along with his position and any additional information which can be user configured. At this point, personnel or family members can promptly intervene in the patient’s rescue. The "Patient Locator" feature allows to locate the exact position of the person under surveillance, and along with the "Call Waiting" function, which can manage more alerts at the same time, and a historical record, allows you to have a full history of your patient’s whereabouts.
How it works
The transmitting bracelet (which can be worn around wrist or ankle, and locked to avoid loss) sends a signal every 10 seconds. If this signal is not received for at least 3 minutes, Trusty Bip’s alarm will go off. This device can be installed, for example, in a hospital registration office, or carried along with you in your pocket for continuous monitoring.
When the patient tries to leave the device range, Trusty Bip detects the lack of signal, and an alarm on the main unit goes off. The patient’s name, along with additional information up to 15 characters, is displayed, and the "Patient Locator" function asks you if you want to search for him, and upon confirmation goes into search mode, allowing you to spot his exact location.
TRUSTY BIP is easy to set up and use. Just connect it via cable to the transmitting bracelet, enter the event information (up to 15 characters) and the patient’s name, and all this info will be displayed in case of alert. Furthermore, an external plug can connect it to a vocal control unit, which allows it to call phones and pagers. This wireless system allows monitoring of patients both at high and low risk
For High Risk monitoring, the bracelet is placed on the patient’s ankle, and the alarm is activated when he moves 15 meters away from the central unit. By doing this, he has a relative freedom of moving, in smaller environments like home or an hospital unit.
Low Risk patients can wear the bracelet on their waist, and the alarm will go off when they move 150 meters away from Trusty Bip’s main unit. This configuration is suitable for a "loose" monitoring, and allows the patient to move freely within a block of flats, a hospital or a park.
