Haldor Advanced Technologies announced today an extension of its ORLocate® pioneering product portfolio with the launch of the HoveRead (Trademark & Patent Pending), a revolutionary handheld RFID reader, designed to work with and extend the ORLocate workstations offering.

In the operating room, the HoveRead allows the scrub and circulating nurse to easily count all the instruments placed on a Mayo Tray, the Back Table or within a metal container and by that, it provides vital assistance during intraoperative counting executed several times along the procedure. The HoveRead can be used to register RFID tagged sponges in the sterile zone and count used sponges placed in nylon bags or dedicated plastic bins.

In the Sterile Processing Department (“SPD”), connected with an ORLocate workstation, the HoveReadTM can be used to register the arrival of sets and instruments on the production floor while placed on trolleys and thus improve productivity.

Equipped with an intuitive display, the HoveRead provides the user with situation awareness and improves the cooperation between the circulating and charge nurses. The HoveRead can also be used to pinpoint which instrument is missing and thus accelerate counting reconciliations.

Ergonomically shaped, light weight and easy to hold the HoveRead is designed to be used by both perioperative staff and SPD technicians. The HoveRead can be desk-mounted to facilitate additional use-cases and work modes.

"We are excited about this new addition to our family of proprietary readers, designed for users after careful study of their needs. The HoveRead will assist Haldor to demonstrate the growing feasibility and effectiveness of RFID in tracking and management of surgical items.” said Ilan Kadosh-Tamari, CEO of Haldor Advanced Technologies.

The ORLocate® System including the new HoveRead will be demonstrated by Haldor at the 2015 AORN Surgical Conference & Expo at the Colorado Convention Center between March 7th-11th. Come to see us at booth 323.
