Sonitor to Showcase New Ultrasound High Definition RTLS Receiver Technology at HIMSS 2009

Raising the bar for RTLS performance in hospitals; New easily deployable Sonitor High Definition Receiver provides reliable 100% room-level or sub-room location accuracy while leveraging the hospital's Wi-Fi or Ethernet network.

Largo, FL (PRWEB) March 18, 2009 -- Sonitor Technologies, Inc., the leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of ultrasound based Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) designed specifically for hospitals, have announced the launch of its new High Definition Receiver (HDR) at HIMSS09 Annual Conference & Exhibition, in Chicago, April 5-8, booth #4845.

In addition to unique 100% room-level location accuracy, Sonitor's High Definition Receiver provides hospitals with the benefit of identifying multiple unique location zones in the same room. Such zones can for example be a patient's bed, which enables automatic recording of patient and caregiver interaction events, or create a zone by the sanitation station to enable monitoring of compliance with hand-washing rules. The High Definition Receiver is plug and play compatible with existing Wi-Fi or Ethernet networks.

"The first orders for the High Definition Receiver for hospital applications have already been received," says Terry Aasen, CEO of Sonitor's American operations. "In addition to several full hospital deployments, many EDs and ORs, requiring separated location zones at patient-beds and nursing-stations are successfully using Sonitor USID. Our unique expertise and leadership in location accurate RTLS has made Sonitor the preferred technology choice for leading hospitals and solution integrators alike."

"The High Definition Receiver represents a milestone in our product portfolio development," says Dr. Wilfred Booij, Sonitor's CTO. "While the HDR offers RTLS location performance beyond anything else in the market place today, it also is a platform for further enhancements in the areas of RTLS location accuracy, ease of deployment and communication flexibility. The HDR design has been carefully selected to enable easy integration with other RTLS related solutions."

As Hospitals strive to improve patient care and efficiency, they recognize the value of reliable room and sub-room location accuracy in Real Time Location Systems. Today, Sonitor's automated computer logon-logoff location zones assist clinicians dependent on accessing computers to view patient information quickly and ensure that it is HIPPA compliant as the clinician moves away from the computer screen. Sonitor's unique capability to enable reliable logging of location based interaction events is effective during a contagious disease outbreak, such as MRSA. It can identify potential sources of the infection, as well as who has been exposed by an infected person, object or area. Another unique application is for patient-fall detection where patient tags detected at floor level activate alerts to staff.

Sonitor's CEO for global operations, Jorn Husemoen, is equally enthusiastic and commented: "The High Definition Receiver is a cornerstone in our unique tracking and location technology, and will be an important component for a large number of industrial partners and software companies in the years to come. I am thrilled with the opportunities before us where our world-class expertise in the field of acoustics is leveraged for very precise location and context aware applications. This will serve a global marketplace of businesses and partners with growing needs for a robust, accurate and in-expensive tracking technology for complex indoor environments."
