Bide is a fall prevention device that supports older people to live safely and independently at home.
Having a Bide device by your bedside at home will help to prevent you or your loved ones from having a fall at night when you are particularly vulnerable.
Through the use of discrete sensors, Bide detects that the user is about to get out of bed and then automatically plays a message from a loved one or carer that prompts them to move more safely. This small and simple action is often enough to support users to get out of bed carefully and reduce the risk of nighttime falls. Bide also provides a low background light which lets them know when they are safe to move off and helps them to find their way.
Peace of mind for you, independence for your loved ones.
Technical details of the product
Bide has been designed to be as simple as possible to set up and requires no input from the user. At night, it will automatically start to monitor the bedroom, using a combination of light and motion sensors. These will be triggered if the user either turns on their bedside light or sits up in bed.
To get Bide ready, the audio messages are recorded onto the device. We suggest this is a familiar voice, such as a carer or family member, or the user themselves. Multiple messages can be stored, and one is played at random each time Bide is triggered.
