How Does our Infant Tagging System Work?

At birth, our RFID Baby Tag (Also known as ‘Charm’) is attached securely to the baby’s ankle. It employs ultra-secure technology to transmit a unique ID to a local network of ceiling / wall mounted readers to track its location.

Elpas Infant Protection Charm

The Elpas Infant Protection Tagging Charm is a small, baby friendly, Active & Ultra Safe RFID Tracking Tag that provides wireless security and mother-baby mismatch deterrence from the time of birth until discharge. It’s key advantages are that it is disposable, size-adjustable, comes complete with a tamper-resistant hypo-allergenic band, includes anti-tamper facility, includes an inner cushion is soft & comfortable and creates an impression. It can also deliver verification that no inadvertent baby switch has taken place

Near Exit Alerts

An unauthorised movement beyond or within a designated field will trigger alarms and notify staff. In addition, exit would normally be automatically locked. In respect of the technology, a Low Frequency (LF) receiver within the tag works in conjunction with an LF exciter to create an alert if any tag nears an exit. If required, the tag can also employ infra-red (IR) transmission for more granular room-level detection.

Intuitive & Easy to Operate Software

One of the features that maternity managers most appreciate about our system is the ease with which they can control the basic functions. As an illustration of how easy it is to use the system, here’s a typical sequence of events:

  1. Select your chosen Charm tag from the list
  2. Assign the Charm a Name/Number
  3. Select Charm State – Activate – Discharge – Suspend
  4. Fit the Charm to the Baby Tags can also be suspended for predefined time periods. (Minutes or hours). This aids with ward theatre transfers. Once the time has elapsed the tag can automatically reactivate.

Stable & Ultra-Safe Infrastructure

To have a baby tag is fine. However, you should consider what would happen if for example the network that it reports to fails? We’ve gone further by proudly developing a host of multiple safety features that will exceed the code of practice of most countries. Unlike most of our competitors, you’ll find that our system utilises server free local controllers to satisfy and even exceed international norms.

By utilising decentralised controllers, it also means that we have no single, central point of weakness in the system infrastructure – a fundamental consideration that IT managers, security managers and engineering consultants really appreciate when we’ve explained it to them. With our solution, in the event of a network or server failure, our system will continue working delivering peace of mind to staff and parents alike.

Advanced System Supervision – A Critically Important Feature

You can rest assured, that your system contains a wealth of comprehensive device and software supervision with ultra-robust event audit features. An example would be where an alarm in the event that that someone attempts to by-pass exit detection is made by placing a smartphone device against the infant tag. Furthermore, we also satisfy multiple international safety standards including TCE, FCC, IC – to ensure that there is no risk at all in respect of EMI interference to hospital equipment.

For Total Peace of Mind – Advanced Tamper Protection

Due to the international standards that we have to satisfy, we’ve incorporated tamper protection into almost all of our devices including tags, readers but vitally too – our local controllers since you wouldn’t thank us if someone were to tamper with one of the most important parts of your system and no alarm was raised.
