Operation theatre & infection control
Toilet hygiene and odor levels. Reduce pilferage in stores
Hospital monitoring made easy Improving the patient experience (patient tracking systems) includes that of looking at the hygiene and odor levels in the public and private services industry. We have long-range wireless sensor solutions that detect people’s movement in washrooms, their cleanliness, presence of odor gases, water levels, automatic lighting controls, etc that would significantly prevent diseases and improve hygiene and improve the consumer experience.
Call us to pilot our wireless sensor solution for inventory monitoring, infection control, and cleanliness management in restaurants, parks, railway stations, stadiums, hospitals, universities.

Surgical site infections cause significant morbidity and mortality in the postoperative period. The opening of the operating room door disrupts its filtered atmosphere, increasing contamination above the wound. We conducted a study of traffic in the operating room as a risk for infections. This is an observational study of recorded behaviors in the operating room. Data collected included the number of people entering/exiting, the role of these individuals, and the cause for the event. A total of 3071 door openings were recorded in 28 cases. Traffic varied from 19 to 50 events per hour across specialties – according to a study
Multifunctional wireless sensor modules deployed in operation theater can help monitor various parameters such as temperature, humidity, door opening, intruder detection to aid infection control.
Hospital monitoring – healthcare workers & infection control
Standard workforce tracking solution incorporates three key components: badges worn by health care workers, which emit radio-frequency identification (RFID) signals; sensors inpatient rooms and throughout the hospital that read these RFID signals; and dispensers that read badges. Dispensers utilize electronics to capture hand-cleaning activity on a group basis, as opposed to requiring employees to wear a badge and be tracked individually. It draws on an evidence-based, statistically valid algorithm that determines how many times workers should have cleaned their hands, based on hospital-specific data such as a number of patients in the unit and nurse-to-staff patient ratio, to derive a compliance rate.
Hospital monitoring – hand hygiene and infection control
Deployment of sensors that detect alcohol vapors, or radiofrequency identification to determine whether Hand Hygiene has occurred. In one study, each nurse wore a credit card-sized badge containing a solid-state metal-oxide semiconductor that detects alcohol vapors (whereas, we deploy long-range sensors) . The alcohol sensor in the badge is activated at the doorway to the patient room by a sensor on the doorframe. Following the performance of HH with an alcohol-based product, the worker places their hand near the badge sensor. If alcohol is detected within 8 s of room entry or exit, the badge light turns green, and it emits a ‘ping’ sound. If alcohol is not detected, the badge light turns red, and the badge beeps.
RFID patient tracking systems
With advances in wireless communication, the industry is moving towards Bluetooth Low Energy devices which offers more flexibility and functions when compared to RFID patient tracking systems. Our Bluetooth patient tracking systems offer accuracy of 5 square meters, do not require any wiring. The patient tracking system can also be used to understand the physical activity of the patient in old age homes.
