Risk Management Products

Risk Management Products are designed to help prevent falls of residents, patients or loved ones who are at high risk of falling. Risk Management for the elderly can help save lives. Death in adults over the age of 60 is often linked to a fall, due to infection and dysfunction of major organs resulting from trauma and immobility after a fall. Falls in older adults usually result in fractures of the hip, pelvis, spine and limbs, as well as skin tears, bruises and/or traumatic head injuries. A fall will often leave the person with a fear of another fall, therefore, limiting activity and interfering with daily independence and mobility. For seniors, preventing falls is essential to maintain a lifestyle they enjoy.

Fall Prevention Concerns

Taking the necessary steps to prevent falls is essential, especially for the older adult living alone. Several simple and inexpensive adjustments to the living environment can be made to help prevent falls and relieve the fear of falling.

Our fall prevention and exit alarm products are simple and easy-to-use. Plug a weight-sensing bed or chair pad into an exit alarm monitor and place sensor pad under the resident in a bed or on a wheel chair. When they attempt to get up, the caregiver is notified either quietly by pager, audibly by a bed or chair exit alarm, hallway monitor or a central monitoring unit in a remote location. Floor mats are placed next to the bed or doorway to prevent exits. Ocelco specializes in all aspects of risk management products, mobility monitoring, anti-wandering and quiet fall prevention solutions. Several risk management products are designed to prevent wandering of memory care residents who may have dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Others are designed to help prevent falls of residents, patients or loved ones who are at high risk for falls.

According to the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC), each year, one in every three adults age 65 and older falls and over 2 million will be treated in an emergency room.
Early notification to a caregiver when a resident is about to get up or wander can help prevent falls. With the use of a bed alarm system, when the alarm sounds, caregivers can quickly go to the aid of a patient before they get out of bed or a chair.

Ocelco specializes in fall monitor alarms and risk management for caregivers monitoring residents and or loved ones. We are committed to helping caregivers prevent falls and wandering in their facilities in order to keep their residents safe. We have several fall risk management products that provide this safety.
