Emfit Movement Monitor/ Nighttime Motion Detection System
Emfit Movement Monitor/ Nighttime Motion Detection System is the latest technology for monitoring an individual during sleep who may experience certain types of movements which a caregiver or family member should be alerted of such as muscle spasms. New, patented sensor technology detects all of a person's movements, including micro-movements caused by breathing and the heart beating. The Emfit Movement Monitor is not classified as a Medical Device. It is designed for General Population Use, and is available for sale in the USA and Canada only.
The Emfit Movement monitor consists of two main components; a flexible and durable bed sensor (L-4060SL) placed under the mattress and a bed-side monitor (D-2090-2G) with sophisticated embedded software. The Movement Monitor detect when a person has continuous quick-paced movements over a pre-set amount of time and then triggers a notification. The system also notices light movements, thus making it equally suitable for small children.
The control unit can be placed next to the bed or on the wall using the included fastening bracket. It is operated with 2 pcs AA size 1,5 V batteries. An optional, medical grade AC adapter is also available.
Notices Faster Movements When movements in the bed are faster than normal movements (such as turning), the monitor triggers a notification. The notification is triggered if the faster movements continue for longer than the pre-set delay. The delay can be set to 10, 13, 16 or 20 seconds.
Sophisticated Signal Acquisition The Emfit Movement Monitor also makes it possible to notify the caregiver when a person leaves the bed and there are no more micro-movements, such as those caused by a person’s breathing or heart beat. This can be especially useful for those who have a tendency to wander.
Interfaces with Other Systems For short-distance notifications the Emfit Movement Monitor has an audible alarm with adjustable volume. It can also interface with most nurse call systems, wireless transmitters and personal emergency phones with the included dry-contact output (NO and NC).
