Onsite Staff Protection
EkoTek is a wireless staff protection system. The system is suitable where staff require protection onsite, such as hospitals or care homes, but also laboratories, schools, hotels, factories, shops or offices. EkoTek is ideal for those members of staff who often have to work on their own, in potentially hazardous areas or be placed in vulnerable situations when dealing with patients or customers. Not only does it give staff peace-of-mind that they will receive assistance when they need it, but help can be actioned straight away so the staff are truly protected. EkoTek is a fully battery operated mesh network based on the 802.15.4 radio standard which can be easily implemented within a building without routing wires.
Battery powered radio nurse call and patient protection
The combination of Ekotek and Vigimage promotes efficient and fast bi-directional communication with accurate location reporting for patients, staff and visitors. The low power radio technology developed for Ekotek automatically builds a robust wireless mesh network across the whole site, small or large. Transmitters are battery-powered and do not need any wire, making installation very quick and low cost, indoors like outdoors. The versatility of the system includes connections and reporting features for pull cords, pressure mats and other third party buttons or sensors.
The combination of Ekotek and Vigimage provides essential tools to promote efficiency, quality and traceability in healthcare environments where care and safety matter. Its graphic interfaces, ease of use and processing power make it a favourite with users and managers.
