SF401GP (Single) Geriatric/Oxygen Pad Call Cords

The Alpha Communications┬« / TekTone SF401GP Call Cord is for use with the NC300 and NC300II nurse-call systems where an 8-pin 'DIN' type jack is used at the patient bed station(s). Typically they are used with the IR319B and/or IR320B patient stations.

The SF401GP Call Cord is specifically designed for use in Geriatric and Oxygen environments, but may also be used in general applications. To place a call, the patient need only apply slight pressure to the pad using any part of the body. The SF401GP has a mechanical switch that is activated by slight pressure from the hand, arm or body and can even be positioned under the patient's chin. The round, flattened soft vinyl pad has gripping feet to prevent it from slipping off of the patient's bed. An adjustable bed clip is supplied for the SF401GP and is attached to the call cord.
