Why Choose Vitalcare RTLS?
Importantly, Vitalcare’s RTLS uses radio frequency beacons and not infra-red transmission to ensure the system cannot be defeated by placing RTLS devices under clothing.
With both Localisation and RTLS, the accuracy of the location is a function of how many receiver points are installed around the facility. The more the receivers, the greater the accuracy of the location. With the Vitalcare system, the receivers and Localiser/RTLS functionality is built into standard call points. This strategy helps reduce the cost of the network and increase the density and availability of nurse call and emergency buttons across the facility.
Who Can Benefit From RTLS & Localiser Technology?
We provide RTLS solutions for:
- aged care facilities
- independent living units
- institutional facilities
In fact, any organisation that relies on being able to accurately locate staff, patients, residents or equipment.
Due to the amount of digital traffic from Localiser and RTLS beacons, the infrastructure needs to be wired with the very familiar blue Cat6 ethernet cabling hidden in walls, floors and ceilings. This is most cost-effective when installed in new builds, but can also be fitted retrospectively to provide existing facilities with this valuable functionality.
