#114610 - looking for sensor solution

I am helping an elderly home in developing a fall prevention device. It is basically a monitoring device which will alert the care giver if the patient tries to get out of the bed. Initially I developed
the device using the pressure pads used by security systems for intrusion detection. It was to check the proof of concept and efficacy of these devices.

During the trial, we found the device is useful but the sensor failed miserably. Upon, examination of the sensor, it was found that failures are due to its construction method. Hence I am looking for an alternative detection method or sensors. One requirement is that the sensor should be invisible (hidden) to the patient. We normally place the sensor pads under the sheets.

Please suggest.
