RFID improves bedlogistics

RFID improves visibility on bed logistics

By providing every bed and every mattress with an RFID label you can register:

  • … where a bed is located, plotted on the map
  • … what the status of a bed is
  • … what the status of a mattress is
  • … how often the bed has passed through the car wash

At the Radboud, the Alltrack system for bed registration is running.

By applying RFID for bed logistics, the department can:

save on trips by only getting beds when they are ready
save on maintenance by only checking beds and, if necessary, repairing them that have a certain lifespan or have gone through the wash cycle a number of times.
