Alarm Monitor
Smaller compact sensor ( Not suitable for babies / children )

The Medpage MP5-NC is an advanced movement sensing alarm, specifically designed to detect irregular movements of a person whilst in bed. A cluster of muscular spasms, for example, will trigger an alarm from the movement monitor. Twitching movements or prolonged convulsive movements can be detected to trigger an alarm. The MP5-NC also features a microphone to raise alert to various sounds such as a baby / child crying or vocalisations during convulsive movements.

The MP5-NC comprises of an alarm monitor and a bed sensor. The sensor is placed underneath the bed mattress and connected to the alarm monitor. The monitor continuously analyses the detected body movements and differentiates between normal sleeping activity and irregular movement. The digital alarm delay control virtually eliminates false alarms by ignoring natural sleeping movements, such as turning over. Continuous irregular movement triggers an alarm and outputs a relay signal. When an irregular movement pattern is detected, the alarm monitor will activate the relay output.

The MP5-NC is very easy to set up, in fact for most people there will be no adjustments to make so it is instantly ready to begin its job right out of the box. If required, changing the sound / movement detection capabilities is very easy as the MP5-NC has digitally controlled adjustments for the sensor/mic sensitivity and a delayed alarm feature.
