Collaborative Effort for Improved Care

The success of the QCare System is a testament to the collaborative efforts of various stakeholders. Led by Mrs. Baesi Ramodula, the CEO of Pelonomi Hospital, the project received invaluable support from engineers at the Product Development Technology Station (PDTS) of the Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT), and the Technology Innovation Agency (TIA). This collaboration highlights the potential for partnerships between healthcare institutions and academic and technological organizations to drive innovation in patient care.

Local Innovation for Global Impact

Unlike imported medical solutions, the QCare System is a locally developed product that addresses specific healthcare challenges faced in South Africa. The inclusion of a call button for spinal unit patients to activate alarms wirelessly demonstrates the system’s user-centric design. This not only enhances patient comfort but also ensures timely assistance from nursing staff, improving overall patient outcomes.

A Catalyst for Economic Growth

The development of the QCare System is not just about improving patient care; it also has broader implications for economic growth. By developing African solutions for local challenges, the PDTS team at CUT is not only improving the affordability and accessibility of healthcare solutions but also contributing to economic growth in the Central Region.

Cutting-Edge Research for Community Impact

This initiative highlights CUT commitment to innovative research that directly benefits communities. Mr. Dan Maritz, a spokesperson for CUT, emphasizes that this project sets CUT apart as an institution that is not only innovative but also deeply connected to the needs of its community.


The QCare System developed by CUT engineers and supported by TIA represents a significant advancement in patient care. This collaborative effort underscores the importance of partnerships in driving innovation and improving healthcare outcomes.
