Real time location system, abbreviated as "RTLS", is a collective name for the technology that makes it possible to locate GPS positions in real time. This type of technology also enables positioning indoors - which is what MiniFinder offers with mobile safety alarms along with deployed beacons.
By placing these beacons in a room, they act as additional transmitters for the mobile safety alarm and provide more accurate indoor positioning. This makes it possible to see exactly where the user is and is something that increases safety in several areas. It is also possible to customize the settings of these beacons depending on needs, especially if it is a larger building where there are several floors and departments. There you can easily mark out the distance and the difference in height and width of location within a building.
Indoor positioning opens up many new opportunities in several different areas, but above all, healthcare is an area where RTLS technology can be extremely useful. The absolute greatest benefit is the increased safety for the patient and reduced anxiety for their relatives, while at the same time making it easier for the staff and frees up time for other tasks. This contributes to increased freedom and independence for the patient while reducing anxiety for healthcare staff.
RTLS is also useful for healthcare staff as they can act and respond quickly to incoming alarms that show who is alarming and where the person is located. Through this, the staff can make efficient decisions on who should take the call for the alarm based on who is located the closest to the alarm holder.
