We understand the problem because we've felt the pain
Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) are a $40B problem for the US health care system. 40% of HAIs are the result of failure to perform a simple, basic task --- hand washing. Health care workers (HCWs) are required to wash their hands before and after every patient contact, yet compliance rates are dismally low. The Braykion Smartband is a wearable device that uses an advanced sensor fusion algorithm to monitor, record, and remind HCWs when they need to wash, and prevents patients from contracting these completely preventable infections. Braykion is transforming the obsolete patient armband into an innovative, meaningful wearable sensor which will save lives and improve patient safety.
