Surgical Tool Tracking

Image-based ID readers reduce errors in the operating theater by tracking tools, sponges


Hospitals are working hard to improve quality, using automation to ensure patient safety. The operating theater is particularly challenging due to fast paced and high pressure situations. To avoid dangerous mistakes, best-in-class hospitals track every surgical tool and sponge entering and leaving surgery.

Cognex image-based barcode reading tools are designed specifically to read 2D codes directly marked on equipment, and are the ideal solution to quickly and reliably read codes when every second counts, and misreads/no-reads can have dangerous consequences.
