News: Reflex provide safe and secure start to life


Rotherham-based Reflex Systems has provided another level of baby monitoring at Wexham Park Hospital in Slough by installing an innovative new wireless infant tagging and fully integrated door access security system.

The Hellaby firm designed a sophisticated wireless system which is extremely easy for nursing staff to use. The technology allows nurses to fit both mother and baby with matching RFID (radio frequency identification) tags simply and effectively, which provides 24 hour monitoring. This includes reporting any unauthorized exit through protected doorways, tag removal or loss of signal, via alarm.

The fully integrated system means that any alarms triggered by the infant tags will result in a sequenced door lockdown and live sounding of alarms locally, at the nurses' stations, as well as at the central security desk.

Reflex Systems went one step further by integrating site-wide CCTV monitoring with the alarm system, which enables nursing staff to have real-time surveillance of the whole area.

Kay Loudon-Bruce, head of security at Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: "It was really important to us that the baby tagging system we chose was simply to use, as well as being extremely secure. As nursing staff need to be able to spend their time nursing, we didn't want them to require lots of technical knowledge in order to be able to operate the system.  Reflex Systems has delivered a technologically sound, robust infant tagging solution that means we can trust in the system to do its job in providing the best possible protection for mothers and their babies."

John Pye, managing director of Reflex Systems, added: "We designed this system using the very latest, fully integrated technology to ensure we can provide complete peace of mind to hospital staff and their maternity patients. It was also important that the system controlled access in a practical way that allows operational freedom for staff, reasonable access to families and compliance to other building management needs too. Because of our extensive experience in working in the healthcare sector, we were able to work flexibly and sensitively to meet the needs of the hospital and its patients."

Reflex has also engineered and installed fully integrated life safety and security systems at a prestigious new retail and office development in London's West End.

The unified solution included complex fire detection and voice evacuation systems, care communications, door access control, sliding glass pedestrian lanes, CCTV and intruder detection operating throughout the 20,000 sq ft of retail space and 113,0000 sq ft of office space.
