In Pictures: Most wild, wacky and wonderful Wi-Fi ...
Wi-Fi monitored handwashing sounds Orwellian, but applied to healthcare, the idea is to increase hand sanitation to cut the risk of infections in hospitals. Ekaha combines its Wi-Fi real-time location system and Wi-Fi staff badges with Akron, Ohio-based GoJo’s SmartLink Series dispensers. You wave your hand to get soap, triggering an infrared pulse from the dispenser to the badge, which uses Wi-Fi to pass event data to the Ekahau server for processing. The two-way link means the system can send reminders and alerts to staff.
