Hundreds of surgical patients every year experience pain, infection – even disability or death – when a sponge, instrument or other foreign object is left behind.
Accurately counting and locating each item before, during and after surgery is essential to preventing RSIs.
No sponge left behind.
AORN guidelines recommend combined locating and counting technology to enhance patient safety.2 ORLocate is the only system that counts and locates RFID-tagged items before, during and after surgery.

Before surgery, scan all RFID-tagged items to be used in your case.
All counts display on the medical grade tablet.
After your case, remove RFID-tagged items and scan.
If there are any RFID-tagged items missing, use the Locator to scan the body cavity as well as laundry or trash bins.
Close your case with confidence when your digital count shows no items were left behind.
