CNUK has become the strategic partner for UK-based technology company Veraz, investing and enabling the production of state of the art market-ready hardware.

Veraz’s touch technology detects when someone has touched (or not) something and reports the occurrence.

Using algorithms it is possible to construct pathways using touch or its absence to determines if an act/event has been undertaken (or not) and its associated quality.

Veraz has focussed on using its technology to tackle healthcare acquired infections in hospitals, such as MRSA and C.difficile, by monitoring good hand hygiene by clinical staff.

Veraz is now in the process of setting up the first pilot sites for its technology in China.
