To deliver real results
You can ensure 100% recycling by placing Timertags into hospital battery recycling containers.

In 2013 we looked for an alert to prevent bloodstream infections associated with peripheral IVs in Australian hospitals. We couldn't find one. So, we developed and patented the Timertag label.
Emboldened by successful clinical trials and international interest in our products, we then developed patented solutions for urinary catheter reviews, emergency peripheral IVs and mobile asset servicing.
When nurses in low-resource countries asked for a solution they could afford, we developed the patented Bedside Alert that delivers alerts for just a few cents per day. It's been a long and challenging path, but it's been worth it. Because we value patient safety as much as you do.
Are Timertags silent?
Yes, so they don’t cause alarm fatigue.
Why do point-of-care alerts flash 6h early?
To allow for delays between indwelling device insertion and Timertag activation, and between lights flashing and being noticed.
Can you make reusable service alerts?
Yes, but at the moment the “cost-per-use” isn’t economic compared to single-use alerts.
What can I clean bedside & service alerts with?
You can use any surface wipe - including 1% hypochlorite.
