The sensor is designed to activate an alarm signal before the resident can exit the bed. The sensor detector is diagonally tapered and initiates the alarm when the resident sits on or moves toward the edge of the bed. Placed beneath the mattress, the sensor will not compromise the pressure relieving qualities of the mattress. The mattress protects the sensor detector against resident tampering and incontinence.
