CLB Acoustic Monitoring

The Brief

Glenwood School is a Community Special School maintained by the Local Authority. It caters for up to 210 learners between 3 and 19 years of age. It is a co-educational school for learners with sever or profound and multiple learning difficulties. Approximately 60% have a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder and 30% have significant physical and/or sensory impairments.

 Glenwood School offers a flexible approach to learning and life opportunities, respecting and valuing the individuality of every learner.

 They aim to provide all learners with the tools and care competencies that they need to enjoy a meaningful adult life.

 Adaptive IT were tasked with installing the CLB Acoustic Monitoring system into a new build dormitory based at their existing site in Essex.

The Challenge

Split over 2 x 10 bed locations, provision needed to be made for all of the 20 resident bedrooms – residents needed to be able to call for assistance at night time without using traditional Nurse Call methods.

Adaptive IT's Solution


A single CLB Acoustic Monitoring Module was installed into each resident bedroom – this monitors sounds in a room and when a concerning noise is heard an alert is sent to a central station.

 The solution helps raise levels of care and resident wellbeing – here are some operational examples,

 – Preventing Falls as residents are reached before bed exit

– Allowing better sleep cycles as interventions in rooms are only when necessary

– Abuse is prevented as aggression is detected

– Privacy and Dignity are protected with less in room interactions

We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work in a specialised environment like this where it is so obvious that the welfare and quality of care of the students is so important. The CLB Acoustic Monitoring will enhance how their night time care is delivered and benefit the wellbeing of students from day one.
