Reliable “Patient is Up” (PUP®) Notification System
Enhancing patient safety and reducing hospital costs
PUP® enables the simultaneous monitoring of all patient rooms, eliminating the need to hold or predesignate “fall risk” rooms. When a patient fitted with PUP® socks stands up or attempts to walk unassisted, the PUP® system issues an immediate alarm to the nearest nurses and the nursing station - allowing the nurse to respond quickly to prevent patient falls.
PUP® Socks: Advanced Wearable Technology
At the core of the Palarum PUP®(Patient is UP) patient mobility monitoring system are innovative smart socks designed with patented eTextile and IoT technology. The PUP® smart socks have no plastic or metal parts other than a small battery case. Tiny proprietary conductive threads sewn into the sock fabric detect when a patient’s feet touch the floor.
Put an End to Nurse Alarm Fatigue
Current patient mobility systems – such as bed, floor, and chair alarms – are prone to generating false notifications and excessive “alarm fatigue” for nurses. By comparison, the PUP® intelligent notification system delivers highly accurate, predictive alerts to paired in-room digital tablets or smart badges -- so nurses can quickly respond and prevent more patient falls.
The Rising Cost of Patient Falls
How much are you spending on patient falls?
Each patient fall costs a hospital an average of $14,056, where each fall represents:
- Potential serious injury or even death (30 to 35% of patient falls)
- Added length of stay (6.3 days)
- Reimbursement penalties
- Legal liability
- Harm to the facility’s patient safety record and brand
PUP® Fall Prevention Solution
Discover the advantage of an integrated fall monitoring system
In 2017, Palarum launched the PUP® (Patient is UP) Fall Prevention solution, the first nurse-centric solution to reliably prevent falls and reduce hospital costs. The early clinical results clearly show that Palarum technology delivers as promised.
