Detect missing sponges in seconds

Retained surgical sponges are a costly problem for patients and hospitals. And manual counts are time-consuming and inaccurate if done alone.

The Situate™ detection system is an adjunct technology to the manual count, and solves this problem with technology that accurately and reliably detects missing tagged sponges in seconds1 — whether they’re in a patient or the OR.

Compared to only manual counts, when a miscount occurs, our system:

  • Lessens patient exposure to anesthesia([FOOTNOTE=Stone et al, Am J Infect Control, 2005.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Decreases the risk of infection3 
  • Shortens procedure time3 
  • Reduces X-ray dependency([FOOTNOTE=Steelman VM. Sensitivity of detection of radiofrequency surgical sponges: a prospective, cross-over study. The American Journal of Surgery 2011;201:233–237.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

Trusted By The Best

Two-thirds of the country’s top 20 hospitals use adjunct technology to help protect patients from retained surgical sponges.([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal Cognos reporting as of August 2019.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),†
