- 16 Typical behavior profiles are pre-defined ready for use thus requiring no further programming or complex alteration of profiles by staff.
- Selection panel at each room means staff on duty (night staff) can select the resident profile at the room to suit the resident's current night-time behavior.
- Intelligent pre-emptive light cuing leads and assists the resident, for example, to the ensuite or back to bed.
- Simple non-intrusive monitoring of the resident's movements without physical restrictions on freedom of movement.
- Modern, unobtrusive design that can be installed to blend in with the decor thus not attracting residents' attention.
- User friendly two button operation requiring little or no staff training.
- Aids staff efficiency through alarm reporting by exception only raising an alarm if the resident's activity varies from the selected pre-defined behavior profile.
Details of the DCS-2000 System
The DCS-2000 is a small, easy to use, two button operated microprocessor controller that alerts staff if a resident is in need of care. There is no computer, keyboard or complex programming required from staff.
Installed next to the door just outside the resident's room, the DCS-2000 integrates with various non-intrusive movement sensors such as a bed exit sensor, door reed switch and PIR movement detectors. The sophisticated microprocessor software analyses the movements detected by thesesensors to determine whether the resident's movements represent 'normal' behavior and if not, an alarm is raised to alert staff that the resident needs care.
Using a simple single key action, staff can select one of 16 pre-defined behavior profiles to be used by the DCS-2000 as 'normal' behavior for a particular resident. This avoids unnecessary alarms when the resident, for example' leaves the bed, goes to the toilet and returns to bed.
The DCS-2000 incorporates pre-emptive light cuing on the selected behavior profile and analysis of movement to automatically switch room and/or other lights on or of as required to assist and guide the resident.
