Can RFID Monitor Whether Someone Uses Medical Equipment?
My 67-year-old grandfather has a medical machine for his respiratory problems. He needs to use this device at least four times per day, but I have doubts that he does so at all. I need to know what kind of system I can purchase to place on the machine that would let me know if and when he utilizes it; I need a tracking device that would tell me how many times the machine was turned on. Is this something you guys have for purchase? If so, is it reusable? And, of course, I need to know the cost of the device. Please advise if you sell this type of tracking system, or maybe you can guide me to another place that sells what I am looking for. I appreciate your help.
There is no off-the-shelf RFID system of which I am aware that can track how often a device is turned on, or whether it is used. (Plus, selling RFID solutions is not something we, as a publishing and events company, would do anyway.)
