Bide is a simple device to support care homes to reduce the number of nighttime falls and give their residents reassurance and peace of mind at night.
Bide’s bespoke messaging system allows a carer or a loved one to leave a message that is relevant to that person. This enables the device to focus on the areas most likely to prevent a fall, which may be different for each person.
Using unobtrusive light and motion sensors Bide recognises when a person sits up in bed and plays the reassuring message.
The traffic light system also gives a visual aid of a time buffer for the person to properly wake up, their blood pressure to stabilise, their muscles to get ready for use, and for them to better grasp their surroundings.
Bide is one of the only devices currently on the market looking at proactively trying to prevent nighttime falls at the time when a person is most at risk, rather than just detecting them.
A reduction in falls will make your care home a safer place for residents and could avert a serious injury or fatality.
