We all think of Stanley products as tools but they have a healthcare division as well. They offer a varied line of products and one example is a wristband that will open doors for people and one other product called “wonder management” which tracks patients who may wonder around the hospital so if you get out of your bed, they can find you. Also interesting is a Tabs Fall Manager to where monitors are placed on chairs, beds, etc. to use a button to call the nurse. Much of their technology is for monitoring purposes and this seems to be a good fit with RFID technologies and of course when you read the information on the website, this is all designed to save money. Roll-Check was another interesting device that alerts on patient movements and can alert them to roll over. BD
