When it comes to protecting your smallest patients, there is no such thing as being too careful. That's why it's important to choose an infant protection system that meets the highest standards of safety and security.
THE NEED FOR COMFORT
Comfort is of utmost importance for every infant, and an infant protection bracelet shouldn’t harm an infant in any way. Our ultra soft polyester blend bracelet puts infants’ comfort first and won’t cut or chafe their delicate skin. While it’s soft, it’s also secure. From the smallest of preemies to full-term babies, our self-adjusting bracelet will stay safe and secure on infants of any size.
We all know that the first hours of a baby’s life are crucial. These hours are full of change including initial weight loss. Guarantee that all infants stay secure with the Cuddles self-adjusting bracelet that will adapt to each baby’s fluctuating weight. By self-adjusting to each baby’s weight changes, the bracelet won’t fall off or become loose when little ones wiggle around. And since the bracelet stays nice and secure, false alarms triggered by postpartum weight loss are avoided.
“Our parents love the soft, stretchy bands because they provide exceptional comfort and security for their newborns.”
The safety of every infant is a top concern in any obstetric or pediatric environment. An infant protection tag should be reliable as well as small, lightweight, and easy to keep clean. The Cuddles bracelet satisfies those requirements and its design means it will never hinder an infant’s movement since only the soft, adjustable band touches the infant’s skin.
While the tag rests securely on the infant’s bracelet, never coming in contact with their skin, a pulsating red light is also easily visible to nurses as a continuous visual indication that the tag is active. Equipped with patented skin-sensing technology, the Cuddles bracelet activates an alarm in the case that it is cut or yanked off an infant’s arm or leg. When a bracelet or tag is tampered with, an alarm is activated to alert staff so the perimeter of the unit can be secured. Be comforted with the most reliable technology to deter and prevent infant abduction attempts and ensure the safety and security of every infant.
SOFTWARE-ENHANCED, HARDWARE DRIVEN INFANT PROTECTION SYSTEMS
Maintain constant security and safety of your obstetric and pediatric floors with an infant protection system that is not dependent on a PC or server. This means if your network or PC were to fail, your secure perimeter remains intact and all alarms will continue to fully function. Be sure every infant is protected from the moment they are born with no enrollment necessary for instant protection.
Should your software ever crash, you can rest assured knowing your infant protection system is still fully functional and every infant is secure. Cuddles is the only infant protection system that is software enhanced, not software dependent.
RELIABLE FREQUENCIES AND ALARMS
Know that your alarm system is reliable with fewer false alarms. Our Cuddles system uses unique RFID technology, data filtering, and changing exciter frequencies to identify and eliminate potential noise issues. Many other systems generate false alarms because of the communication frequency used in the system. These false alarms are usually triggered by ambient noise like mobile phones, lighting ballasts, and floor buffers.
The Cuddles infant protection system operates at a unique frequency (418 MHz), just below the maximum requirement mandated by the Department of Defense, making it the most interference-free system on the market and reducing hassle and disturbance triggered by false alarms. Want even fewer false alarms? In addition to minimizing false alarms due to ambient noise, the Cuddles system also eliminates “loose band” alarms as its self-adjusting bracelet always remains safe and secure on every infant. Wondering about compliance? Wonder no more; the Cuddles system is compliant with all NFPA, FCC, NEC, CA, ETL, and JCAHO requirements.
EASE OF USE
With a simple system in their hands, nurses can activate tags as well as admit and discharge patients in moments. Easy-to-use hardware and software work seamlessly, enabling nurses to spend less time managing a “system” and more time focusing on what matters most: caring for moms and babies.
INFANT PROTECTION SYSTEM INTEGRATIONS
The need for real-time notifications and response is essential in the case of infant abduction. An infant protection system is only effective if it can relay the right information at the right time to the right people. It should also be able to seamlessly integrate with platforms and devices that already exist within staff processes.
Your infant protection system should simplify your process, not add complexity. Think about how your infant protection system integrates with your:
Nurse call system
Electronic access control (EAC)
Pagers, beepers, or any other mobile devices carried by caregivers
iOS or Android devices
Any other internal systems that will enable your infant protection system to work seamlessly within your facility
With the Cuddles infant protection system, you’ll have all the information you need at your fingertips. Whether it’s with our handheld Identification Tag Activator/Deactivator (IDTAD) or the stationary Test Tag Station (TTS), you can see all the details of a particular infant’s tag. Each will let you see the remaining battery life, warranty date, and program number of every tag. Gain even more insight with the ability to see tag notes and report on all tag data with the Test Tag Station.
HIGH-QUALITY CUSTOMER SERVICE AND SUPPORT
Get the support you need when and where you need it. Take advantage of the industry’s most comprehensive customer support program with free 24-hour technical support and a full one-year warranty. Should anything go wrong on-site, one of our local authorized dealers will be there to service the system—no need to wait for a technician to fly in from the factory.
“One of the key factors to us was a local source for support and maintenance. We aren’t dependent on technicians having to fly in or support it remotely. They can be on-site quickly if we need them.”
—Coral Ann Hackett, Director of the Family Center
EVALUATING AN INFANT PROTECTION SYSTEM
Choosing an infant protection system is a big commitment of both finances and resources. A system this important takes time to implement and should be one that you feel confident in for years to come. Make sure you are making the best decision for your facility by asking the right questions of your potential vendor.
What is the training and implementation process? What is the cost?
What technical support is available?
Who installs the system?
Who will support the system?
How much will it cost for annual software upgrades?

Benefits of Infant Protection for Hospitals
Protecting infants from harm is the primary benefit of installing an infant security system at your hospital, but there are other pros to infant abduction prevention. It’s important for hospital systems to evaluate the worth of products thoroughly and compare and weigh costs with the value proposition they bring.
Accutech’s Cuddles product has a number of benefits for hospitals:
Bring Peace of Mind to Parents
Infant protection systems are a practical way for hospitals to show their commitment to providing patient safety and peace of mind for parents. Installing an infant protection system demonstrates that the hospital values the health and security of its patients, particularly those who are too young to communicate their needs. Not only can the Cuddles system help prevent kidnapping or abduction attempts, but it also offers parents assurance that their child is safe, allowing them to focus on the care their child needs during this vulnerable time.
Improve Your Hospital’s Reputation
When your hospital is known around town as the safest place to deliver babies, not only will you feel proud of your accomplishments and track record, but you won’t have to worry about filling up your maternity ward. Additionally, the protective bracelet is soft against a baby's skin, making parents happier with the monitoring system and improving overall patient satisfaction scores.
Reduce Staff Turnover
Accutech's Cuddles system is a great choice for hospitals looking to reduce liability.
