Sensor for Hand Hygiene Monitoring

Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) are the most common type of complication for patients who are hospitalized. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2011 there were an estimated 721,800 HAIs in U.S. acute care hospitals that led to about 75,000 deaths and more than $20 billion in healthcare costs. It is well documented that hand hygiene is one of the most effective measures to reduce the transmission of healthcare-associated pathogens and the incidence of healthcare associated infections.

Our sensor-based platform helps infection control professionals to monitor hand hygiene of healthcare providers and ultimately to reduce healthcare-associated infections.
