Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 24, 2009
Guard RFID Solutions Inc. announced today that the Middle Tennessee Medical Center (MMTC) has chosen its TotGuard™ Infant Protection solution for its new $267 million facility in Murfreesboro, TN. The facility is to be equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, and GuardRFID's TotGuard™ system will play a pivotal role in the protection of newborn and pediatric patients.
Guard RFID Solution's active RFID infant tracking TotGuard™ product is a true IP-based RFID infant tracking system, using existing Ethernet networks, so the system can be accessed across the whole facility, as well as remotely for monitoring and maintenance services. The system uses tags with a unique dual-tamper detection technology so as to reduce nuisance alarms, as well as the first tamper-detecting Umbilical tags.
"MTMC has been committed to equip our new facility with state-of-the-art technologies, and we set about to find an infant and pediatric security solution that would live up to this commitment", said Jennifer Garland, MTMC's project director, "We were very impressed with the capabilities of GuardRFID's new generation TotGuard™ Infant Security solution, with its IT-friendly platform and ease of use. We worked closely with several departments including maternal-infant services and security, and we are confident we've selected a safe, highly advanced system."
GuardRFID's Vice President of Sales, Beth Bandi stated that she is excited about deploying the TotGuard™ Active RFID tags at MTMC. "GuardRFID is continually adding features and capabilities to its TotGuard™ solution that have never been available in the past with other systems. MTMC's new facility being built promises to be a real showcase not only with uncompromised infant and patient security, but because it will also provide the highest quality of care. MTMC's choice of our TotGuard system is testament to the fact that GuardRFID has developed a true next generation RFID platform."
