CLEVELAND, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Emanate Wireless has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant for $255K to conduct research and development work on a unique healthcare IoT solution: Utilization, Condition, and Location System (UCLS). UCLS uses smart tags with sensors and machine learning algorithms to track the utilization, condition and location of medical equipment within a healthcare facility. The NSF funding will support pilot trials with three major hospital groups.

UCLS provides actionable insights to healthcare administrators to help them discover under-utilized equipment, optimize equipment workflows and implement usage and condition-based maintenance schedules. Current hospital asset tracking solutions (known as RTLS) attempt to track the location of assets, but do not provide context on what the device is doing or how effectively it is operating.
