It only takes 4-seconds for an abductor to leave a room with a baby and make a hasty exit. With the majority of U.S. infant abductions occurring in hospitals, protecting newborn patients from the threat of abduction has become a high priority for all hospitals and birthing centers.

Thankfully, providing a high-quality infant security system in a hospital environment is easier and more affordable than ever with Cuddles Infant Protection Systems from Accutech.

From lower costs to advanced features, and the most comprehensive customer support program in the industry, there are many reasons to use Accutech RFID-enabled products.

And with more than 35 years of experience, there's no doubt that the Cuddles infant security systems are the best in the market — and why more hospitals and birthing centers are choosing to make the switch.

CuddlesThe Leading Competitor
Hardware Driven, Software Enhanced
Using a combination of wired and wireless tech, hospital staff can easily process admissions and discharge patients regardless of WiFi, server or PC functionality.
PC and WiFi-Dependent
If the PC or network communications system fails, staff are unable to process admissions and discharges.

Comfortable design
Cuddles uses a soft, stretchable band that adjusts with the baby’s changing weight and results in the tag never touching the baby’s sensitive skin.
Contact Required
The tag must maintain contact with the baby’s skin at all times to avoid alarms. If the plastic band is too loose, false alarms will sound–leading to alarm fatigue.
Dedicated Network of Dealers
A nationwide network of certified dealers install and support the Cuddles solution. Their years of experience ensure proper installation, staff training, fewer service calls, and guarantee response times.
Subcontracted Installers
Choose to outsource their security system installation to subcontractors who do not participate in the system sale, limiting their dedication to the project.

Extended Warranty
The Cuddles system comes with free software updates for the life of the system. Accutech also offers extended warranties to corporate customers at no additional charge along with 24/7/365 free manufacturer technical phone support.
Costly Agreements
Requires yearly software licensing and service agreements in order to receive any assistance or support for software issues. These agreements can cost as much as 10-20% of the initial installation/ implementation of the system itself.
Unbeatable Customer Service
Not only do you have access to Accutech’s tech support, you have access to the Special Care Systems team at all times—at no additional cost!
Sunsetting Support
By the end of 2023, you won’t be able to get any support for or upgrades to your system—you’ll be stuck with an antiquated security system with software that cannot be updated.

Our Clients Trust Cuddles

The system is user-friendly and our nurses feel the soft bands on the leg do not cut the baby (like other systems). They alarm quickly if removed and Accutech representatives assist as needed and provide additional training upon request.
