HKC Technology, an IT integrator has installed the system at the hospital.

Using a combination of Ekahau’s Wi-Fi based RTLS personnel badges and asset tags, the safety of the hospital’s waste management is improved.

The hospital personnel will carry Ekahau T301BD personnel badges while the medical waste truck will have the Ekahau T301A asset tags.

The medical waste truck can only open the container cover at certain waste collection points if personnel carrying the T301BD badge are nearby.

Ekahau’s T301A tamper sensor triggers alert and will send the alert to the truck-paired personnel, as well as the disposal control room, in case of unauthorized opening.

HKC deputy CEO Samuel said Ekahau’s solution also is compatible with the co-existing hospital PDA systems installation operating over the Cisco WLAN.
