RAPHAEL-aktiv -The wander prevention system
The SCHUTZENGELSYSTEM Raphael-aktiv makes use of the active transponder technology (RFID) which is an excellent technology for the indoor use. The transponder tags are integrated into watches or pendants and are worn by the inhabitants with desorientation problems. At this point new areas for the mobility of those patients can be defined. Therefore taking a walk inside or in the garden of the facility are made possible. The system signals when one tag-wearing person is about to leave the defined area. Moreover, the system also notices when one of them returns into the facilty again and the alarm is autoamtically acknowledged.
The Schutzengelsystem can be planned and optimized according to the indivudial requirements of the facility. The installation is easly done and does not necessarily interrupt the daily processes.
Situation 1: While leaving the entrance area, the transponder triggers an alarm. Via the transponder at the wrist of the patient, the detection unit can lock the door according to the authorisation.
Situation 2: The inhabitant moves in the garden or in the yard infront of the facility. The alarm is triggerd at the point when the yard is left. By using the walking direction detection the alarm is autoamtically acknowledged when then person returns onto the yard. This information as well as a fast signal eases the positioning of the patient.
Situation 3: In order to keep an archtectural wideness the RFID-technology can be used to secure land boundaries without a fence. Therefore a loop in the ground can be used.
Transponder as wristband:
The tansponder can be worn as a watch - dummy on the wrist. The band is made of leather or a steralizable synthetic. The wristband is equipped with a special clasp, which just allows the staff to open the band by using the magnetic key. Moreover the transponder case is waterproof.
Transponder as a watch:
The transponder can be integratet into a functional watch. Alternatively the band be made of leather as well. The watch surely is equipped with a special clasp, which only can be opened by the magnetic key. The watches are splash water proof.
Reading / Detection unit:
The reading detection unit creates a spherical magnetic detection field surrounding itself. The transponders are detected within this field and therefore an alarm is triggered in case a desoriented person approaches an exit. The width of the detection range can stepless be adjusted between 0,5 meters and 6 meters.
The patented clasps only can be opened by the magnetic key. Combined with a very robust syntethic band, a detachment of the transponder is signifcantly hindered.
The magnetic key is easy to use for the caring staff.
