Bed leaving sensor for fall accident prevention in elderly facility and hospital.The sensor can detect three different states of care recipient on the bed- rising up, sitting on the edge of the bed, leaving the bed - by sensing the movement of that person.User can select one of these states so that the sensor alerts the staff via nurse call when selected state is detected.The sensor can be installed independently from the bed and be easily set on the head side of a care recipient.Because the sensor is non-contact type and quiet, it does not compromise the comfort of bed user.
