Did you know?
1 hour spent on the floor following a fall increases the risk of death in the next 12 months by 50%. In nursing homes, the number of unknown or belatedly discovered falls is significant. Supervising residents is performed in shifts, and the fear for the nursing staff to find a resident injured on the floor is very real.
Kaspard is an innovative solution that detects all types of falls, and helps to proactively respond thanks to an instant alarm sent to the nursing staff.
With Kaspard, nurses find peace of mind and can make their rounds smoothly and peacefully, without extra workload.
In a nursing home with about 100 beds, on average at least 200 falls occur each year.
Kaspard provides a solution that detects all types of falls, and alerts the nursing staff in real time.
When a fall occurs, the system instantly sends an alarm to the nursing staff via the DECT or the smartphone being used.
Instantly notified, the staff can respond immediately to assist the resident within 2 minutes.
Proactive response, restored trust, reduced stress, ... The benefits are sub- stantial and significant for both residents, and nursing teams.
No need to learn how to use a new tool. Kaspard can be integrated into the existing person-call system within the nursing home or hospital.
Kaspard supports you throughout the setup process, working closely with the nursing staff, the tech team, and the IT department. We handle setup, training and follow-up to ensure the highest level of satisfaction.

Learn about what residents, and healthcare professionals have experienced.
Kaspard has improved the workplace experience for our nurses. Nurses usually do 4 nightshifts to supervise everyone. Now, they know that between shifts, this system is in place to record data, and call them when needed. It provides additional monitoring, making their work easier and more comfortable.
"It is not obvious with bed rails or for bathroom trips, for instance, but Kaspard is extremely important because it helps learning a lot about residents. We know if we need to adjust treatments or secure the room during the day. Kaspard can be an early indicator of declining physical and mental health. Given the health concerns residents have just experienced, Kaspard is a 'little' extra that's extremely important."
"Kaspard lets us adjust medication treatment in consultation with the primary physician. We can understand our residents' nocturnal patterns - why do they get up at that time of night? Do they receive their medication in a timely manner? etc. We use it to gain reassurance, and to understand nighttime behaviours. Once we have enough data, we can move Kaspard to another resident's room - it's unbelievably convenient!"
"Before Kaspard, the number of falls was obviously much higher. In a nursing home with an average of 4 rounds per night, it was not uncommon for a fall to occur, and to actually remain unknown until the next round, because residents in secured units often have dementia, and are not even aware they should use the nurse call system. Kaspard makes it possible to act much faster, more importantly, before a fall."
"The real innovation of Kaspard is that we can now get to a resident before the fall occurs. Kaspard does detect anything that can happen prior to a fall. This device is definitely all about prevention."
"When residents are confused, their families are the ones we deal with to ask for input. Families are delighted that this tool (Kaspard) is in place, and are amazed to see that such a device is available to prevent falls. Relatives are very happy that we have it in place to keep their loved ones safe - it's a huge benefit to the facility."
