Multitone Staff Protection System Wins Coveted Building Better Healthcare Award 2017

Multitone Electronics is proud to announce its powerful EkoTek staff protection solution has won the coveted ‘Best Communications System’ award in the Building Better Healthcare Awards 2017.

Mark Hickson, Marketing Manager at Multitone Electronics, commented: “We are delighted to have won this key category in these very well-respected awards. The awards recognise and honour innovations that benefit patients and healthcare providers in the real world. EkoTek delivers precisely the right staff protection, providing a vital duty of care to employees by enabling them to instantly call for help whenever an incident occurs.”

A robust onsite two-way wireless staff protection system, EkoTek raises an alarm from the touch of a button, a fall or lack of response from the user. By providing precise location details with the alarm, assistance is instantly directed straight to the user, exactly when it is needed.

The solution is perfect for protecting professionals in challenging environments or in isolation, such as laboratories, hospitals or care homes. EkoTek utilises an intelligent wireless self-healing mesh network that is battery operated, making it the perfect choice for retrofit installations in busy environments, where cabling could be inappropriate.

Reflecting upon the significance of the win, Mark concluded, “It is testament to the sheer hard work, professional expertise and innovation of the whole team at Multitone that we are in the privileged position of being a winner this year. We would also like to congratulate the other winners in the awards and we look forward to taking part again next year.”
