Vidar NFC is a nurse call solution without the classical wall mounted room devices. Smart labels - NFC tags - replace the room units.
Not only does our NFC solution cut installation costs, it also gives the residents a better living environment and faster alarm response with better security.
When first developed our concept for a serene care environment, we removed corridor displays to give the residents a more homely environment. With the Vidar NFC solution, we also remove the ugly call points/room devices from their rooms.
✓ Fast and easy installation without cabling to resident's rooms.
✓ NFC for full traceability of alarms and actions down to each staff member.
Using existing WiFi infrastructure, unlike proprietary DECT/paging systems, makes for a very cost-effective solution. It also lowers the learning curve and allows your own IT staff to manage the systems themselves.
With traditional nursecall systems, alarms have to be reset by pressing a green button in the resident's flat. This serves as evidence that the staff has responded to the alarm and is seen as a proof that the alarm has been dealt with.
But what happens if the resident instead is in the communal dining room for lunch? With a traditional system, the staff has to run off to their flat to reset the alarm. Imagine their frustration when the resident, wondering where they went, presses their alarm pendant again...
With the NFC solution, staff see the alarms in their smartphones and reset the alarm by letting their phone briefly touch the residents alarm pendant/wrist button. The handset will automatically detect the presence of the alarm button and reports back to the LAS server who has arrived at the resident's location to help.
This completely removes the need to a green "check-in button" in the resident's room, and thus there's no need for canling or extensive installation work that would otherwise interfere with the care of the elderly. A small and unobtrusive NFC tag in the shape of a sticker is easily placed in every location where staff needs to check in, in addition to the residents' pendants.
