Fashion Brands Absent From Wearable Tech Revolution - BoF - The ... | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it
As the technology industry sets its sights on wearable computing, it's time for fashion and luxury brands to take the space seriously, or risk losing highly lucrative real estate on the emerging battleground of the human body.
petabush's insight:

Interesting that thye reduce the human body to: two wrists and one face. Again its here where an engagement with contemporary jewellery designers could open up their perception of where an object can be worn ont he body and how.

RFID-reading wristband tracks hand hygiene to reduce hospital-acquired infections

RFID-reading wristband tracks hand hygiene to reduce hospital-acquired infections | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it

A startup called IntelligentM wants to make hospitals healthier by encouraging workers to clean their hands properly. Its solution is an RFID (radio frequency identification) bracelet that vibrates when the wearer has scrubbed sufficiently, giving employees a way to check their habits and letting employers know who is and isn’t doing things right.

 

Some 100,000 people a year in the United States alone die because of infections that arise from hospital visits, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and a lot of these infections occur because doctors, nurses, and technicians don’t wash well enough.

Washing hands is good and this would be useful to get staff trained. It only addresses a small portion of infection control how about lab coats. I know many who will wear the same lab coat for months without washing. Another issue is equipment such as ekg leads, how often are these thoroughly wiped clean between patients. In outpatient rehabs patients are trained to clean their equipment, but do you trust the patient has properly cleaned the equipment before you?
