TEL AVIV, Israel, October 18, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Visonic Technologies (VT), a growing world leader in Active RFID/RTLS safety and security solutions, today announced the immediate availability of its Elpas Door Kit Wandering Patient Starter Solution. The kit is the newest addition to the company's expanding line of hospital-grade real-time patient safety and security monitoring solutions.

The Elpas Door Kit supplies low-cost versatile protection of ambulatory individuals suffering from Alzheimer's disease and dementia or other high risk residents and patients who exhibit the tendency to wander off unnoticed. The solution permits regular movement of care givers, guests, other residents or family members through a protected doorway while preventing un-supervised 'Wanderers' from leaving the protected area. Should these high-risk residents or patients approach the door through which they are not allowed to pass unescorted, the solution's automatic alert functionality immediately triggers.

The Elpas Door Kit highlights VT's technological commitment to deliver wandering patient protection for smaller healthcare facilities. As an innovative safety and security engineered solution which is easy to install with minimal facility impact, it eliminates the need for a costly dedicated computer server, does not require field programming and is simple to use by all staff members.

"The Elpas Door Kit is a complete 'Starter Solution' packaged with everything needed to install a single-door, wandering patient solution by an electrician or security/alarm technician," said Michael Wasserstein, CEO of Visonic Technologies. "And since every healthcare facility is different, the Elpas Door Kit can easily adapt to the 'Best Practices' of any healthcare facility."

The Elpas Door Kit is factory pre-configured to support flexible patient escort alternatives, handle as many patients, residents or escorts as required and supports intelligent alert options. This out-of-the-box solution is easily expandable to cover additional doors, an entire floor, a whole building or a complete campus in order to protect patients and staff members and to manage medical assets without degradation to the core wandering patient functionality.

The Elpas Door Kit is internationally safety compliant and is CE, FCC and IC approved.
