The HigenX™ system utilizes RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) which records each time hygiene activity such as hand washing takes place.
The information is automatically logged (via GSM) into our software application from any location globally and developed into management reports, thus allowing organizations to demonstrate and maintain hygiene standards and measure compliance against best practice.
Independent Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) have stated that HigenX™ has led to a 300% increase in hygiene activity on a customer site.
HigenX is an experienced supplier of electronic handwash monitoring systems for healthcare and foodservice, based near Galway Bay, Ireland. Founder Mike Mahony is truly a pioneer as his research led to a series of advanced solutions. Installed systems are largely in Ireland at this time with testing planned for entry into the North American market in the last half of 2020.
An interview with a nursing home owner/operator outlines the HigenX benefits and provides installation insights. The visualization of safe/unsafe hands serves to remind and motivate staff compliance. Jim Mann, Handwashing For Life’s founder, traveled to Tralee in County Kerry for first-hand feedback from the nursing home operator, Catriona O’Connor and Mike Mahony.
