Scandent's first line of defense against elopement is a comfortable, customizable wristband that wandering-prone residents can wear. Our wristbands last three years - three times as long as most commercially available wristbands
- and cost just a fraction of the price. While Scandent wristbands are highly effective at mitigating wandering and elopement risk, we also know that some residents do not like wristbands
and that wristbands can fail if their batteries run low.
For residents that do not want to wear a wristband, or simply for additional levels of security, Scandent provides RFID tags for resident clothing, shoes, wallets, wheelchairs, walkers, handbags, hearing aids,
glasses, and any other items the resident might wear or use. These tags can be programmed to trigger wandering alarms and alert designated staff.
Beyond the standard audible alarm and flashing light that alert staff in the vicinity of an elopement risk, Scandent also provides emails, text messages, and phone calls alerts that can be automatically
sent to designated staff. With these three additional levels of alerts, staff that are not in the immediate vicinity of the checkpoint can be notified and prompted to respond.
