  • The majority of U.S. infant abductions occur in hospitals.


Find out why the Cuddles Infant Protection Systems are preferred by nursing and security professionals throughout the world.

Searching For An Infant Security System?
Not all infant protection systems are created equal.

Improved beaconing technology, comfortable and tamper-proof infant bracelets, fewer false alarms, streamlined admittance, and discharge—these are just a few of the benefits offered by our hospital infant security system. Unfortunately, not all infant ID bracelets and systems provide the same advanced technology and peace of mind. Our Buyer’s Guide offers a complete guide to evaluating infant monitoring systems, alarms, tags, and support.

Automatic Tag Check-Ins

When not in an alarm state, the Cuddles Pulse tags send out a signal every 1.5 seconds to check in with the system. If seven of these signals are missed in a row, the system will notify your staff and can lock down the floor within 15 seconds of a tag’s presence not being detected. That’s up to 90 seconds earlier than our competitors!

No More "Too Loose" Alarms!

Experience the Cuddles light-weight, self-adjusting band that fits snugly and comfortably around the baby’s ankle. Made of an ultra-soft polyester blend, the bracelet won’t cut or chafe the skin, and won’t fall off due to movement or changes in weight. The tag will never come in contact with the baby’s skin.

Other Reasons to Implement Cuddles At Your Facility

You may think your hospital is safe with cameras, locks, and dedicated security staff, but surveillance equipment alone cannot always prevent infant abductions. While protecting infants is reason enough to install effective security equipment, there are a few other benefits to the Cuddles Infant Protection System:

Reduce Your Liability

The Cuddles infant protection system ensures the safety of infants in hospitals and healthcare facilities, provides peace of mind to parents and staff, and improves operational efficiency.

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 the time of birth.

Healthcare Security & Infants ID Bracelets FAQs

You’ve probably heard of infant bracelets or newborn tracking systems, but you may not know much about how an infant security solution works. Accutech Healthcare Security Solutions has representatives that are happy to answer any questions you have about newborn security systems in hospitals. Reach out now to speak to a member of our team. You can also read through the infant security Q&As below.

How Does the Cuddles Infant Protection Solutions Work?

Accutech’s infant abduction system works by combining soft, comfortable newborn bracelets with an electronic infant monitoring system. If someone tries to remove a baby without authorization, the system will alert nursing staff of the breach. Other protective mechanisms are in place, such as alerts that go off if someone should try to remove the bracelet/baby tag. Newborns are safe and secure with the Cuddles protection system, providing peace of mind to parents, while reducing liability and improving nurse efficiency.

Is a Medical Baby ID Bracelet Different From an Infant Security ID Bracelet?

Yes, medical ID bracelets are used to identify patients currently staying at a hospital. This is typically a plastic tag with a label containing the patient’s name or other identifying information on the bracelet. Medical IDs are not used for infant security. The Cuddles infant security band is made of soft material that is comfortable and safe for newborns’ sensitive skin, but it is also secure. This band is used to protect the baby from unauthorized removal from a hospital or maternity ward. Inside the bracelet is an electronic device that connects with a perimeter protection system.

Can Infant Protection Bracelets Fall Off?

Because babies are all different sizes, Accutech’s Cuddles band is designed to be flexible and adjustable. However, it is also made to be secure and not easily removed. The bracelet should not fall off, and it should not be easy to remove unless properly unfastened by a nurse or cut off. If the band is cut off or removed, an alarm will alert nursing staff, which sets off an immediate response to recover the infant before the child is removed from the hospital.

Is the Cuddles Infant Protection System Easy for Hospital Staff to Manage?

Accutech’s infant protection system was created to be simple and reliable, and the tagging system is easy to use. Our solution fits the workflow of maternity ward nurses, so they can protect their little patients while focusing on patient care.


How do hospitals prevent babies from being stolen?

Hospitals use a variety of security measures to protect newborns, including controlled access to maternity units and camera surveillance. One of the most effective measures is the use of infant protection systems like Cuddles that attach a tamper-proof bracelet to the baby's ankle immediately after birth. If someone attempts to remove the tag or take the infant out of the designated area, alarms will sound.

Do hospitals put trackers on babies?

Yes, many hospitals use infant security systems, such as the Cuddles Infant Protection system. These systems employ bracelets with embedded sensors that are placed on the baby's ankle. These bracelets communicate with a system that monitors the location of the baby within the hospital. If the bracelet is tampered with or the baby is moved outside of a designated area, an alarm is triggered.

What is an infant security system?

An infant security system is a technology solution designed to protect infants in healthcare facilities. These systems use wearable tags or bracelets attached to the infant, which send signals to a central monitoring system. If the tag is tampered with or the infant is taken beyond a certain boundary, the system triggers an alarm. Systems like Cuddles also offer real-time location tracking and integrate with existing hospital systems.
