Founder & CEO

Clean Hands Safe Hands is a wireless hand hygiene monitoring system for hospitals. Clean Hands Safe Hands’ device improves and monitors hand sanitizer compliance among healthcare providers with an audio recording reminder and compliance-tracking feature. It provides a low cost and highly customizable solution to the hand hygiene compliance problem that otherwise might result in infections and the spread of disease.  Clean Hands Safe Hands has the potential to reduce the costs associated with both treating hospital acquired infections (HAI) and compliance monitoring required for accreditation bodies.

The explosion of the Internet of Things is pushing us towards a sensor enabled world. Ubiquitous sensors will provide new data to cities, communities and farms that will enable entire new business models, greatly increase efficiencies, as well as reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions. To realize this potential, we will need a new approach to wireless networks that can scale to efficiently and cost effectively support hundreds of millions of sensors.  Sensors need to be low cost, communicate over miles outdoors and from inside buildings, as well as run for years on standard batteries. No existing wireless network technology can support these requirements today. Cellular networks are too expensive and power hungry.  Existing consumer wireless devices simply don’t have enough range to provide city-wide coverage. We’ve studied this issue for years and assembled a team of seasoned wireless veterans to develop the infrastructure technology for the world’s most advanced, low power, wide area network for the Internet of Things, RadioCloudTM.
