Fitting a nurse call system can often be disruptive, time-consuming and expensive; but not with Aid Call’s wireless system.

Aid Call has been leading the way in the design and manufacture of nurse call technology for over 40 years, with bespoke products and solutions designed to meet the needs of care homes, hospices and hospitals.

The newest system, the Touchsafe Pro, has been specifically developed following feedback from those at the forefront of care delivery, to ensure it facilitates the provision of person-centred care while remaining easy-to-use.

Wireless configuration allows the system to adapt to the ever-changing priorities and demands of the healthcare sector, which is reassuring at a time of increased pressure on resources and environments.

Additional panels, call points and assistive devices can be added at any time and Aid Call offers an extensive range of assistive technology, such as fall detectors which facilitate individual patient and resident requirements.

As Touchsafe Pro does not rely on cables or stationary wiring points, it is infinitely expandable and allows for complete flexibility and mobility. It is tailored specifically to work within each individual site and budget, with quick and undisruptive installation.

Innovative features and powerful software achieve unrivalled functionality – improving the speed of call responses, and increasing the depth of information available to staff and management alike. This enhances team performance and supports staff in providing the most effective care.

Aid Call’s nurse call systems are programmed to track and record all call information. Details of outgoing calls are stored, including call location and response time, to provide a comprehensive insight into staff activity and performance.

With user-friendly touch-screens, antimicrobial properties, and the option of emergency or cardiac pull-stop or push button configurations; the Touchsafe Pro is truly the most advanced system on the market.
