At a time when hospitals are having to optimise the use of available resources and in many cases quickly expand the equipment provided at the patient bedside, Static Systems’ Lnx™ interface system offers an easy to set-up and cost-effective solution to help manage the patient environment.
The interface system – which allows ward-based staff to quickly connect healthcare equipment into their existing nurse call system as and when required, provides a convenient wireless connection point for third-party systems, such as enuresis alarm and infusion pump alert, as well as supporting bed-exist alert, remote nurse call fobs, special needs call units and bedroom door alarm – all helping to reduce pressure on nursing staff and improve patient well-being.
Lnx™ works with Static Systems’ nurse call solutions that use the RJ12 hand unit jack, and the system couldn’t be easier to use. The existing patient hand unit is simply replaced with its Lnx™ equivalent, the third-party device is connected to a Lnx™ Connect Unit, and the units are paired.
Without the need for additional infrastructure or re-programming, the newly connected device automatically takes on the characteristics of other patient-to-staff alarms, including follow-the-light operation, alerts at the nurse station and smart device notifications.
Devices are portable and can be easily relocated to an alternative bed area as occupancy changes – eliminating the need to purchase a device for every bed.
