Point-of-care turn status
The LEAF Sensor is a wearable technology that tells you what you need to know in the patient’s room – with just two taps of your finger.
Know when the patient needs to be turned
Tap the sensor twice – the lights will tell you whether the patient needs to be turned.
Know the turn is sufficient
Turning only helps if the angle is far enough to offload pressure. A tap of the sensor will confirm if your turn is sufficient or if you need to readjust the patient.
Know when the patient has turned themselves
Because the sensor is always monitoring the patient’s position, it will alert you if the patient turns themselves – which spares you a task if they turn to the correct side and alerts you if they have turned to the incorrect side.
No more counting floor or ceiling tiles on walks
The sensor automatically counts patient steps and distance traveled – so you can instantly generate a report that shows the patient’s progress.*
A wealth of information with two little taps
Turn due in > 15 minutes
Turn due in < 15 minutes
Turn severly overdue
This green flashing light on the sensor indicates the patient is on their right side and has over 15 minutes until a turn is due.
This yellow flashing light indicates the patient is on their left side and has less than 15 minutes until a turn is due.
This red flashing light on the sensor indicates the patient is on their back side and is overdue for a turn
These two red flashing lights on the sensor indicate the patient is on their back side and is severely overdue for a turn.
When a caregiver gently taps the LEAF Sensor, indicator lights momentarily flash to provide real-time turn status.
*The LEAF System is not to be used to alert staff of situations that would require immediate action in order to maintain patient safety. Be aware that there is a possibility of ambulation/step detection inaccuracy. Some patient steps may not produce enough movement to be detected by the System. Conversely, some patient movement may resemble the movement associated with taking a step and therefore be recognized by the System as such.
