Alcohol Monitoring

There are several components to the SCRAMx monitoring system for alcohol consumption:

  • The SCRAMx bracelet
  • The SCRAMx base station

SCRAMx bracelet

SCRAMx

The patented SCRAMx ankle bracelet is attached to the user with a durable and tamper-proof strap. It is worn 24/7 by the user for the duration of his or her court-ordered abstinence period.

Every half hour, the bracelet captures transdermal alcohol readings by sampling the insensible perspiration collected from the air above the skin. The bracelet stores the data and, at pre-determined intervals, transmits it via a wireless radio-frequency (RF) signal to the base station.

  • 24/7 transdermal alcohol detection plus house arrest technology in tamper-proof bracelet
  • Performs 48+ alcohol tests/day and stores data
  • Provides full data vs. a snapshot view
  • Tamper- and water-resistant
  • Automatically collects, stores, and transfers all data via the SCRAMx base station on a predetermined schedule (at least 1x/day)
  • Date- and time-stamps readings for easy reporting and analysis

The SCRAMx base station

During installation, a SCRAMx base station is plugged into an analog telephone line – usually in the user’s home or place of work. At a pre-scheduled time(s) each day, the SCRAMx bracelet communicates with the base station, which transmits alcohol readings, tamper alerts, and diagnostic data to SCRAMNET for detailed analysis and reporting. The base station also features an LCD screen that provides operation messages to the user.
