Digital bedside devices with a pear-shaped manipulator. The manipulator is terminated with a small JACK plug. Thanks to this, the possibility of damaging both the socket and the plug when tugging on the cable has been eliminated. The AP 700-3 device (with a three-button manipulator) enables the patient to turn on the paging signal. This signal contains the coded number of the bed, which allows the personnel to be informed exactly where the signal was triggered. The two-color LED clearly informs about the inclusion of the paging signal and its arrival at the duty room. In case of damage or lack of the manipulator, information about it is immediately sent to the signaling matrix in the nursing station. Additionally, it enables the personnel to activate the SECOND CALL signal. AP700-3 devices, apart from the possibility of summoning help, also have the option of controlling local and night lighting in over-bed panels of other manufacturers.
