Mar 13, 2020 | Luana Pascu Biometric Update
SuperCom is providing a tracking biometric technology-based solution for quarantine and isolation monitoring to help governments contain infectious diseases such as the coronavirus, the company announced.
The solution is a scalable electronic monitoring and tracking platform ready for deployment. It includes a waterproof, hypoallergenic Bluetooth ankle bracelet, a smartphone and SAAS software in the cloud, but is also customizable such as for smartphone-only monitoring. SuperCom says is already speaking with a number of government organizations to roll out the solution globally.
The system monitors patient location in any environment, including in buildings and vehicles, and supports existing healthcare containment models. It comes with smart phone integration, secure communication, advanced security, anti-tamper mechanisms, fingerprint biometrics, voice communication, unique touch screens and extended battery life.
Dubbed PureHealth, the solution integrated PureSecurity technology that has already been used to track and monitor people with location restrictions in the USA, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Estonia, China and Latvia, among others.
“Our expertise and advanced technology for monitoring of people in countries around the world uniquely positions us to aid governments in monitoring of individuals which are at risk of spreading the virus,” said Ordan Trabelsi, President of SuperCom Americas, in a prepared statement. “We have worked with governments for over 30 years on their most sensitive and critical security projects, and hope to partner and help them as well during these turbulent times. Our technology is ready for deployment and works within existing healthcare containment models for control and surveillance of patients with infectious disease.”
