SwipeSense gets $9.6 million for hand hygiene tracking system

US-based smart hand hygiene sensor-maker SwipeSense has raised $9.6 million according to a new SEC filing. This brings the company's total funding to $12.1 million.

SwipeSense offers hospitals different kinds of hand sanitiser dispensers, including a wall-mounted version and a wearable version. The sanitisers are all connected to an app that automates manual observation reporting and also analyses the information.

Everyone in the hospital also wears a smart badge, which records hygiene events and allows the system to track individual compliance levels as well as unit comparisons and historical trends.

"The idea is to provide incentives and instigate behavior change through real-time data," co-founder Mert Iseri told Crain's Chicago Business in 2013. "Employees can work towards their own goals and improvement."

The company says its system increases hand hygiene by 64 percent for its users.
