RTLS (Real Time Location System) Leader Sonitor® Technologies Announces Launch of Staff Safety and Duress Technology

Technology Addresses Alarming Rise in Workplace Violence

STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sonitor Technologies Inc., a global leader in indoor positioning
technologies, announced today the introduction of Sonitor Sense
SenseSafe™, their new technology enabling duress and safety applications
designed for the company’s RTLS open integration platform. SenseSafe
helps healthcare and other industries address the alarming rise in
workplace violence by giving staff a SmartSafe™ tag equipped with RTLS
technology requiring only a single button press to pinpoint their exact
location in real-time.

SenseSafe technology is specifically designed for duress and safety
applications. If a staff member or clinician is facing assault or other
threatening situations, they can quickly and discreetly press a button
on their SmartSafe tag which immediately provides their exact location,
enabling a timely response from other staff or emergency responders.
Sonitor’s SenseSafe duress technology solution addresses staff safety
concerns, reduces emergency response times, prevents injuries, and
performs these actions discreetly, confidently keeping safe all that
matters. (http://sonitor.com/application-safety.html)

SenseSafe is an integral part of the Sonitor Sense RTLS System, a
proprietary, high definition, open integration RTLS platform powered by
SmartZoning™ technology, with Wi-Fi and LF to deliver a completely
scalable solution that supports an expanding range of applications. The
Sense QuadLT™ ultrasound location transmitter series is designed with
optional vandal-proof covers to meet international IK10 standards for
ruggedness and impact and will also allow for more direct transmission
of the ultrasound signal helping extend the battery life of the devices
by reducing signal attenuation. Sonitor SmartSafe tags are embedded with
the logic to know their location and to communicate instantaneously over
the Wi-Fi network when their position changes. Not only does this
provide real-time update rates, it enables industry-leading battery life
for low maintenance and cost.

“SenseSafe delivers peace of mind to clinicians and staff on the front
lines of healthcare and other industries, and it helps emergency
response teams and security officers do their jobs more effectively,”
said Anne Bugge, President and CEO of Sonitor Technologies, Inc. “Along
with our other product launches at HIMSS, which include the SenseAlert
solution and our SmartTag Temperature Tags, Sonitor continues to expand
its state-of-the-art technology to improve the safety of healthcare and
other key industry stakeholders across the board.”
