BROOKFIELD, Wis., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- RF Technologies®, a leading provider of RFID monitoring systems and healthcare security solutions, announces that it will be showcasing its new Smart Sense™ transmitter and banding technology at the 2010 Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) annual convention.  The conference will be taking place at The Venetian in Las Vegas from September 25-29. Smart Sense technology is part of the newest version of Safe Place® Infant and Pediatric Security Solution, an anti-abduction system.

"We have heard a lot of positive feedback about our unique Smart Sense bands, which are soft and comfortable on infants, while keeping them protected.  Our current customers are also excited about the Smart Sense technology because of its advanced tamper detection capabilities," stated Mary Van Himbergen, Product Manager at RF Technologies.

Smart Sense technology is the first in the industry to utilize multiple measurements, making Safe Place the most robust infant protection system on the market.  It can detect if a band is loose, tampered with or has been removed from the infant. The soft, stretchy band will comfortably shrink around the newborn's ankle to accommodate weight loss or gain, keeping the transmitter in place and the infant secure.

In addition to the new Smart Sense technology, Version 7 of the Safe Place Infant and Pediatric Security Solution features a new Pre-Enroll function that will allow staff to admit an infant or child before he or she is banded, improving staff efficiency.
