Medical device tracking

Integrate ELA Innovation geolocation beacons into your medical equipment location solutions.

Medical device tracking, what is it?

Managing a pool of medical equipment that is used by various departments and by many people is a challenge that all hospitals face. Indeed, in case of a medical emergency, time can be of the essence, so it is essential that the medical staff can find the necessary equipment as quickly as possible.

In addition, every year, many medical devices are lost in health care centers, generating non-negligible additional costs related to the purchase of the material. In fact, 20% of medical equipment cannot be found and on average 75% of these equipments are unnecessarily ordered.

To meet this challenge and optimize their management, many hospitals are equipped with geolocation solutions for medical equipment. Thanks to the 100% autonomous geolocation beacons, no more time wasting and unnecessary costs.

How does the medical devices tracking work?

To geolocate medical equipment, different technologies can be used. The choice of one technology over another will depend on various criteria, such as the type of infrastructure required, the number and size of the equipment to be geolocated, the environment in which the solution is to be installed, the cost of the infrastructure and, finally, the level of accuracy required.

To geolocate medical equipment, ELA Innovation offers location beacons based on two different technologies: Wirepas Mesh and Quuppa AOA.

“The shape factor of the tags was very important for the customer, which is what pushed us to choose the COIN line from ELA Innovation. Compact, this tag integrates particularly well with small medical devices such as syringe pumps that have to withstand harsh conditions.”

Why integrate ELA Innovation location beacons into your medical device tracking solution?

The location beacons from ELA Innovation are ideal for meeting the need for the tracking of medical devices for many reasons:

100% autonomous

Their battery powered operation offers up to 20 years of autonomy depending on the model, guaranteeing a competitive total cost of acquisition.

Quick and easy installation

Extremely easy to install thanks to the various means of fixation (high performance double-sided sticker or support that can be screwed), these sensors can be fixed on any type of surface and do not require any wiring.

Robust and compact

These beacons are perfectly adapted to extreme environments. IP68, they are waterproof and resistant to shocks and vibrations.

Real-time tracking without GPS

These beacons offer an indoor tracking accuracy of less than 1m, as well as a reactivity (configurable from a few seconds to a few minutes) allowing to know in real time the position of each equipment.
