Acoustic Monitoring is particularly suitable as an assistive technology in homes
that specialise in looking after care-dependent residents.

Mental health care

Mental health care providers are faced with many different and unique challenges from residents who require 24 hour support and may be in high-security units. While these residents generally require a higher level of monitoring, it is still very important to respect their privacy and help them feel as independent as possible. Night care can be a particularly challenging environment as such patients present a higher level of risk, so every incident requires immediate reaction. Acoustic Monitoring can solve many of these issues.

Dementia care homes

Because Acoustic Monitoring reduces, and can sometimes eliminate, the need for making rounds at night, mental care residents can be left to sleep peacefully while staff remain informed about potential problems. With lower ongoing workload and more consistent centralised positioning, staff on standby are better placed to quickly deliver a higher quality of care when needed.

These benefits mean Acoustic Monitoring can be regarded as an assistive technology both for residents with mental health issues and for their care providers. In addition to night staff having the ability to care more considerately, day staff also benefit from the considerably improved wellbeing and behaviour shown by patients who have had a better, uninterrupted night’s sleep.

Acoustic Monitoring can be integrated with a range of technologies such as motion sensors, CCTV and door sensors to provide a complete end-to-end solution, all controlled and monitored from one place via a single system.
