Surgical Sponge RFID Tracking System

Mon, 05/19/2008 - 10:22am


Cardinal Health has reached an agreement to distribute ClearCount’s patented SmartSponge™ system as part of its Presource® surgical kits and as a stand alone offering. The sponges are permanently affixed with passive radio frequency identification (RFID) tags that are smaller than a dime. The SmartBucket™ display highlights any count discrepancies. If a discrepancy occurs, a SmartWand™ scan is used to identify any sponges remaining in the patient. A SmartMat™ under the patient provides the user with notification that a scan is proceeding properly. As the only system to integrate counting and detection for the purpose of sponge management, the SmartSponge™ system saves time, prevents unnecessary X-rays, reduces the possibility of user error, minimizes delays in procedures and reduces the hassles associated with count discrepancies.
