Care homes where Elsi® Smart Floor has been installed the care givers can focus to the most important tasks, rather than constantly checking if residents are ok. Regarding to this the need for night shift staffing, has been decreased.
Elsi® Smart Floor is improving the well being at work. The stress level is low due to the better information about the residents. That has a direct correlation to reduced sick leaves and need of temporary staff.
After a 4 year pilot and independent study of Elsi® Smart Floor by the Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare, Elsi was shown to reduce falls in the elderly by as much as 97% at certain times of the day by providing staff with an early warning of the movement of an at risk resident.
Main savings comes from: residents better health, avoided falls, less staff, reduced medicine and laundry costs. Elsi® Smart Floor solution does not wear or tear anything, so the effective usage of time can be over 10 years. That has been proven during the long history that we have. Detail ROI can be calculated separately in each Elsi® Smart Floor case.

Sends alert when unusual behaviour occurs. Immediate reaction can be made to support the resident
Resident usually follow their daily patterns. If there is a clear deviation from that Elsi® Smart Floor can give an alarm to care givers. For example if there is less or more activity than normally at toilet visits or time spent in bed.
