Global infrared and thermal imaging company Irisys, is set to showcase its new Smart Infection Prevention technology at this year's Healthcare Innovation Expo.

The new technology is designed to reduce the risks posed by healthcare associated infections (HCAIs), increasing hand hygiene compliance and optimise cleaning practices.

HCAIs are a considerable problem for many healthcare facilities, with the contamination of hands and surfaces playing a huge part in the spread infections.

Irisys uses thermal sensing technology to detect the heat emitted from those around the hospital determining their movement and directions.

Intelligent algorithms are then used to reveal human behaviour and provide data and management information to determine the true levels of hygiene compliance and whether those areas are being used by staff or not.

The technology has already received the support of the Department for Health, National Research (NiHR), Invention for Innovation programme, in order to help provide a solution to improve hand hygiene compliance.
