Deafgard is a moveable wireless acoustically triggered bedside unit that incorporates a high intensity strobe and a connected vibrator pad, that when placed under the pillow, vibrates to wake the sleeper upon the fire alarm sounding. The flashing strobe and LCD provide visual indication that the fire alarm is sounding, allowing the individual to leave their room to a place of safety.

Deafgard is given to the deaf and hard of hearing person upon arrival. The person responsible checks and shows the person how to operate the Deafgard unit. Deafgard accompanies the person to his/her room.

The connected vibrator pad is placed under the pillow. When the Deafgard unit ‘hears' the fire alarm, the under-pillow pad vibrates waking the sleeper, whilst the activated flashing strobe and LCD provides the visual indicator. The result is an immediate and effective motion and visual trigger, which signals that the fire alarm is sounding, allowing the individual to leave the building to a place of safety.
