Sonitor launches a low cost, semi-disposable RTLS/IPS Patient Tag!
The Tag, named P-Tag, weighing less than an ounce and measuring 2.3x1.3x0.8 inches, is a small battery-powered wireless device, easily attached by snapping the shell onto any standard patient wristband, or similar band or lanyard. Protected against possible infectious contamination by the disposable outer shell, the core is designed for repeated use without the need for cleaning.
Simplify RTLS/IPS installation by using Sonitor’s new “PC-Detector” technology which leverages existing computer hardware and LAN connectivity
RTLS installation complexity and cost is virtually eliminated with Sonitor’s “PC-Detector” technology by leveraging existing computer hardware and LAN connectivity. The Sonitor ultrasound Tag signal detection can be performed by most computers in the hospital’s patient rooms and/or elsewhere by leveraging a hospital’s existing computer hardware and LAN connectivity
Automated Patient-Fall Detection!
Reliable location accuracy performance can help improve medical outcomes and save money related to patient falls that might otherwise not be responded to in a timely manner.
The Sonitor fall detection capabilities are comprised of the same proven ultrasound positioning technology which is used to establish reliable tag location with 100% room, bed or sub-room level accuracy. In the event of a patient fall, an active Sonitor patient wristband tag located in a pre-defined zone close to floor level, such as next to the bed, will be detected. Through software algorithms, alerts will then be communicated to caregivers who can initiate immediate response to the injured patient.
About Sonitor Technologies
Sonitor Technologies is the developer, manufacturer and supplier of an ultrasound indoor positioning system (IPS) that automatically tracks accurately by room the real-time location of moveable equipment and people in complex indoor environments, such as hospitals.
