Infant security is a paramount concern for maternity wards, and baby identification is a critical part of keeping newborns safe. Footprints from birth are a recognized and viable way to uniquely identify each baby. CertaScan by Accutech is the leading provider of digital footprinting, allowing hospitals to identify infants from time of birth.
"We have been asking for a digital solution for footprinting for 15 years."
- Cathy Nahirny, Senior Analyst, Infant Abduction Care, NCMEC

"This new technology for a foot scanning system is a tremendous advancement in the critical need to make a speedy positive identification of newborns in abduction cases. Hospitals and law enforcement agencies alike should be excited by this new development."

- John Raburn, ACSW, Director Infant Abduction Response, NCMEC
