These Wheelchair Seat Belts reduce falls by triggering a fall monitor when the "One-Finger" Easy release buckle is unbuckled. The "One Finger" easy release buckle preserves resident's freedom of movement by not acting as a restraint.
The Wheelchair Seatbelt’s metal-reinforced ends make installation easy and secure. The Seatbelts are adjustable up to 54” and longer seat belts are available by special order.
Wheelchair Seat Belts work with a standard fall monitor mounted to the chair, but can also be set up as a wireless system that signals a caregiver pager or central monitor. When used with a Wireless Fall Monitor (TL-2016R3), seat belts trigger the Wireless Fall Monitor to signal to a caregiver pager (TL-2016P) directly, with no central monitor required. For facilities that prefer central monitoring, the Wireless Fall Monitor can signal the Central Monitor Unit (TL-2015R2), informing the caregiver of which resident’s seat belt was opened. The Central Monitoring Unit can monitor up to 999 residents. An optional Wireless Alarm Light is also available for this system.
This product is not a restraint and therefore will not stop the person from leaving a bed, chair or room. The effectiveness relies on the immediate respose by the care giver.
