Abstract

TABS Monitors are Versatile

TABS mobility monitors help reduce the risk of falls, whether the person is in a bed, a favorite chair, on a wheelchair, even in a room - all with the same monitor. Every TABS monitor is mounted using Dual Lock fastener, so it can be transferred easily from site to site as the person in your care completes the activities of daily living. Because of their versatility, TABS monitors are valuable additions to any fall risk management program.

The Extra Plus Pad, Inbrand's newest addition to its light incontinence line, is designed for individuals with an incontinent situation that cannot be resolved with lighter absorbency bladder control pads. Like the Regular and Extra Pads, the Extra Plus Pad looks like a feminine hygiene pad, but features super absorbent material, a transfer sheet and elastic leg gathers designed for the incontinent situation.

TABS Monitors are Versatile

TABS mobility monitors help reduce the risk of falls, whether the person is in a bed, a favorite chair, on a wheelchair, even in a room - all with the same monitor. Every TABS monitor is mounted using Dual Lock fastener, so it can be transferred easily from site to site as the person in your care completes the activities of daily living. Because of their versatility, TABS monitors are valuable additions to any fall risk management program.

TABS monitors are the ideal solution in the restraint-free environment. There's no struggle to release the lightweight cord from its magnetized slot - only 1 to 3 lbs. of force is required - so staff is alerted that a resident has moved beyond the caregiver's predetermined safety zone. Many times, the TABS monitor can help prevent falls before they happen as the alarm often discourages the person in your care from getting all the way out of bed.
