Surgical Equipment Tracking and Sterilization

Customized embedded RFID solutions for surgical applications dramatically improve patient safety while helping clinicians save time and reduce risk.

By deploying RFID readers and writers customized to your specific application requirements, hospitals can track the location, usage and sterilization status of everything from surgical instruments and medicine to clips and sponges. This reduces the likelihood of cross contamination, medication understocks/overstocks, the ongoing expense of replacing reusable equipment, and the devastating aftermath of retained surgical instruments (RSI).
