The INSTANTalarm® 5000 System provides the opportunity for giving trusted patients their own Personal Infrared Transmitter to call for assistance, thus eliminating the need to provide wall–mounted push button units. The patient call Transmitter can be of cylindrical design, in many different colors and operated by pushing the button on the base or in the form of a BadgePIT.
Because the INSTANTalarm® 5000 System is optionally able to identify the Transmitter that has been activated, as well as its location, then a more informed response to a patient can be made.
There is a range of Patient Call Button Units available, which can be configured to different requirements. The standard unit has an orange Call Button and a reassurance LED. To this can be added, in any combination, a Reset Key Switch, a Disarm Key Switch, a ceiling Pull Cord or a "Wander Lead" socket.
Patient Call Button Units can be addressable, with their own unique address, or "slave" units which are connected to an Infrared Receiver Unit. They have a smooth, white fascia manufactured from ABS for maximum survivability in robust environments and incorporate antimicrobial technology which reduces the incidence of Staphylococcus aureus and E. coli by over 99.8%.
