Sensor mattress "Kognimat"

Sensor mattress with alarm trigger
for the care industry

The wireless bed exit warning system for
fall-prone individuals and dementia sufferers

The kognimat sensor mattress unites a range of innovations which can make a significant contribution to the safety of dementia sufferers and other fall-prone patients.

The development is based on long-term collaborations with care homes and university clinics. During the design process, a top priority was increasing the quality of life of those affected via the reduction of mobility- and safety-associated risk factors which can result in falls and injuries. In addition, kognimat offers an effective alternative to undesirable movement-restrictive and restraining measures and the ethical dilemmas posed by these.

With kognimat, the mobility, quality of life, safety and freedom of affected individuals increases substantially. To minimise the risk of injury, the use of kognimat in a low bed, preferably in connection with a fall mat, is recommended.

kognimat – safety you can't see

Acoustic signal when patient sits
on the edge of the bed

… climbs over the side rail

… is entangled in the side rail

kognimat functions in every bed position and offers maximum safety thanks to sensors integrated along the entire length of the mattress

… is in danger of falling out of bed

… climbs over the end of the bed


The combination of kognimat and our Impulse 400 and Impulse 400 LR100 low care beds means that, in many cases, the use of restraining measures is unnecessary.
