The Qbell™ is a simple press device that enables the patients to get the attention of healthcare staff with ease, preventing agitation and frustration of the patient trying to press a small button on conventional devices or alternatively, being unable to attract attention.
Patients who have reduced or no hand/arm function due to hand injuries, spinal injuries, amputations or hand tremors are unable to use the existing nurse-call buttons to get the attention of the healthcare staff in hospitals, rehabilitation centres and frail care centres. We have developed an alternative nurse-call button that can be operated using the patient’s palm, chin, foot or another part of the body.
During the last 8 years of being disabled, the University of Life has taught me some valuable lessons about myself and life. Being disabled is not the end of the world, but the start of a new challenge. I have learned that with the right attitude you can overcome any obstacle or problem. I approach challenges in the workplace with this same attitude.
