The KidMATCH system utilizes a hand-held, barcode Reader to scan an encrypted barcode on the infant's bracelet and mom's bracelet. If a match, then an audible tune (lullaby) is heard by all present. If a mismatch, then an alarm sounds. This allows the clinician, the parents and anyone else in the room to take an active role in the security process.
KidMATCH provides 4 bracelets for each family: one for mom, one for dad and two for the infant (wrist and ankle).
