“Our HUGS system, which is the industry standard, continues its sustained growth in maternity wards and birthing centers throughout the
Xmark’s infant protection systems are designed to prevent infant abductions and inadvertent child mismatching. The main component of the systems is a wearable RFID tag that is assigned to child and mother following birth. Monitors positioned throughout the hospital detect the integrity of the tags and location of the child. If a newborn is removed from the ward, if the tag is lifted from the baby’s skin or if the ankle strap is compromised, the system immediately triggers an alarm, alerting hospital security to the situation.
Xmark infant protection systems also protect against mismatching events by affixing matching RFID tags to mother and child. If the mother is given the wrong child, the RFID tag detects the mismatch and activates an audible alarm.
Xmark products are installed and serviced through an international network of authorized dealers, backed by a dedicated technical services department at Xmark. All aspects of Xmark’s business are certified to the ISO 9001 quality standard.
