    Easy to use:

  • No interruption to workflow or everyday activities.
  • Waterproof, cleanable and wirelessly rechargeable devices can be used across teams and departments – device use not specific to individuals.

  • Timely summary reports provide the individual with suggestions for improving their hand hygiene technique and performance.
  • Individual and group performance reports provide managers with insights for meaningful one-on-one coaching sessions.
