|Hyginex Sensors & Transmitters |
Sensor Equipped Hand Hygiene Detectors
|The Hyginex sensors and transmitters are placed on regular soap and hand sanitizer dispensers (provided by Hyginex) in the patients' rooms and throughout the hospital. The sensors interact via wireless connection with the bracelets to detect proper hand hygiene: |
- Whether hands were washed after treating a patient and before treating a new one.
- The length of washing. Protocols differ in each establishment – but most refer to 15 seconds as a minimum.

The Hyginex smart sensor bracelet alerts the healthcare worker when hands are not washed properly. All the data from the bracelet is then downloaded to the Hyginex server to be analyzed.
- The technique in which the hands were washed. Time is not the only compliance factor – proper scrubbing is also essential for germ removal.
