Modular Falls Mat

The Modular Falls Mats – Designed by NHS staff and commissioned by NHS Innovations – were constructed to lessen the risk of injuries sustained from patients or residents falling from beds.

Ideal for Use in Residential Care homes, Hospital Wards and other care facilities to protect individuals prone to falling from their beds. The mats provide an alternative solution to Bed rails (Cot-Sides, Safety Sides, Bed Guards) which can pose serious dangers; entrapment by head, neck or chest and injury to limbs of vulnerable individuals who may try to climb over the rails.

Modular Falls Mats are designed to be positioned on the floor beside the bed, to help reduce the chance of injury from a fall.

The Modular Falls Mats work by reacting instantly upon impact to absorb and redirect the impact force of a fall. The high density of the Modular Falls mat’s foam core disperses the sudden downward energy away from the point of impact and distributes it along the entire area of the mat, lessening impact forces on the faller.

Each Modular Falls Mat comes in two sections easily connected via the Velcro attachments included and the indented carry handles on each section makes it easy to separate, move to another area and re-assemble. The tapered edges of the Modular Falls Mats help to minimise the risk of tripping to staff, residents and visitors to the site. The edges also allow chairs and other wheeled items to pass over it.

To reduce cross-infection the mats are made from a polyurethane foam containing an antimicrobial additive for easy cleaning with a damp cloth and drying with soft cloth or paper towel.
