Hartford Care partners with Sensio to reduce risk of falls

Hartford Care has teamed with Sensio to trial the Norwegian company’s fall reduction technology.

The four-month trial will make Hartford Court care home in Portsmouth the first care home in the UK to trial Sensio’s solution.

Sensio’s RoomMate tech tracks sleep patterns and shows when residents are waking or getting up during the night. According to Sensio, privacy is ensured via an anonymised infra-red 3D sensor that can detect movement, from the resident sitting up in bed, to them leaving the room. The tech can also alert carers if the resident is calling for help when they may otherwise not be able to reach their call bell.

In Scandinavian care homes where the technology is already being used, falls have been reduced on average by 60 per cent across 8,000 daily users, according to the manufacturer.

Hartford Care chief executive Kevin Shaw said: “It’s a very exciting prospect to be the first care home in the UK to be trialling RoomMate. This is ground-breaking technology which could help our entire industry develop and evolve; I am looking forward to seeing the impact this will have on our already exceptional resident care.”

Sensio chief executive Johan Anstensrud added: “We are delighted that the residents and staff at Hartford Care will reap the benefits from our revolutionary safety sensor RoomMate. For years it has proven to be a success in Scandinavia, preventing falls, injuries and ailments, and giving more time for personal care. I am looking forward to continuing this exciting journey also in the UK, together with Hartford Care.”
