Currently, the multidisciplinary team has no way to understand or analyze residents’ falls. Nor do they have unbiased data to optimally understand the residents’ behavior, habits, or nighttime needs.
Kaspard fall sensor is more than just a fall detection device, it provides real insights into the resident's falls and habits. Using 3D simulation, Kaspard captures the situation before, during and after a fall incident. Then, Kaspard issues daily reports on residents’ activity.
These fall analyses and insights make it possible to adjust nursing routine to caring needs, and take preventive actions in order to mitigate fall-related risks.
3D visualization of falls
The 3D visualization of the fall helps to understand the circumstances and causes of the incident. A fall is not always directly related to the person's physical abilities, but may be caused by externalities, such as a misplaced table, a poorly secured object, etc. With this valuable analysis tool, multidisciplinary teams can limit the risk of a new fall and take preventive actions. It also provides support during multidisciplinary discussions to personalize residents’ care.

Activity reports provide a better understanding of residents’ behavior and habits. Combined with 3D snapshots, these reports are valuable insights for interactions between HCPs trying to adjust care level to each resident's caring needs. A better understanding of residents’ activity patterns makes it possible to take preventive actions, thus reducing potential falls.

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."
