Hugs Infant Protection


Over 1780 hospitals worldwide rely on the Hugs solution, part of the AeroScout RTLS platform, to help protect their infants from the risk of abduction and mother/infant matching.

Protection for all

Hugs is in use today to protect not just well newborns, but pediatric patients of all ages and even NICU babies at open-crib stage. And protection applies not just to stranger abduction, but to the growing threat of family abduction.

More layers of security 

No other system swaddles infants in more protection, continually watching over each infant, every exit from the unit, all parts of the system and environment, and in every corner of the hospital. 

Scalable to any hospital

The Hugs security system provides effective, scalable and affordable protection. It’s the right choice for a 20-bed critical access hospital and a large urban medical center with thousands of births a year.
