Committed to Infant Protection

We're proud that the Hugs solution helps protect millions of infants around the world. And we're committed to leading the market and working with every one of our customer to provide the most comprehensive protection.

Investing in the Next Generation of Safety

In August of 2019, we announced that we were ending sale of the legacy version of the Hugs solution. We did this because the underlying technology for Legacy Hugs is more than 20 years old. Launched in 2013, our next-gen solution offers significant advancements to help clinical and security staff better protect newborns against modern security risks. It was time to lead the market to the next stage of infant protection.

Simple + Expanded Protection

Designed with our caregivers in mind, our next generation of Hugs provides expanded infant and patient protection with the same proven performance you know and trust. Some key enhancements include:


Advanced Security & Scalability

Next generation Hugs enables hospital-wide infant protection using your existing Wi-Fi network, or you can stay with departmental-only coverage that doesn’t use the hospital’s Wi-Fi—either way you get many new benefits. 

Elimination of Nuisance or False Alarms

Using the most advanced wireless technology eliminates nuisance or “false alarms” caused by RF noise or interference

Clinical Workflow Enhancements

You’ll get familiar and trusted features along with important advancements, like bedside access, mobile alerts, easier login, reduced system management

Technology Advancements

Gives your infants greater protection with continual supervision and out-of-unit alerts, enhanced cyber security, “off-line” mode for exits, and more security integrations. 

Application Consolidation

You also have access to other real-time location applications, including Asset Management, Temperature Monitoring, Staff Protection and more.

Clinical Services & Training Support

As a reminder, you have access to training and support resources for the lifespan of your Hugs system. STANLEY Healthcare’s Clinical Services team consists of seasoned RNs with years of experience in Women’s Services and Pediatrics. We provide effective, comprehensive training for your staff to ensure the safety of your smallest patients.
