The Qbell™ is a simple press device that enables patients with motor and physical disabilities to get the attention of healthcare staff with ease.
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.
The Qbell™ has the potential to positively improve the healthcare experience of people with severe motor and physical disabilities.
Qbell™ is an alternative nurse-call button that can be operated using the patient’s palm, chin, foot or other part of the body.
