About Sonitor Technologies

The Sonitor IPS is a robust, accurate, yet simple tracking solution that addresses the real-time location monitoring of moveable equipment and people in complex indoor environments, such as hospitals and other medical facilities. Its patented ultrasound technology ensures that the detectors interpret a Tag's signals with 100% room-level accuracy and without risk of interference from any environmental noise or other signals nor interfere with sensitive instruments, which is particularly important in a hospital or medical facility setting. Location accuracy at bed-level or zone-level inside a room can also be achieved. The system, which fully leverages the existing wired or wireless network with minimal burden on the bandwidth, is based on a unique and patented use of ultrasound for communications in air that identifies the position of any object or person in real-time.

Sonitor Technologies was founded in Norway in 1997. To learn more about the Company and its ultrasound IPS, please visit the corporate web site - www.sonitor.com.
