The common misconception is that banning cell phone use in Hospitals actually decreases the effects of RF emissions on sensitive hospital equipment. In fact, not having proper signal levels forces the cell phone to broadcast at the highest power levels in order to reach the cell phone towers through concrete walls and floors that make it nearly impossible. The highest power levels are what effects some hospital equipment and may even cause malfunctions of a deadly nature. Since almost everyone in a hospital has a cell phone and there is no way to guarantee that anyone will turn them off, saying that they are not to be used is simply not enough. Installing a CellAntenna Repeater system, including our newest Fiber Optic system, MOFORSAS™, lowers all power levels coming out of a cell phone to their lowest levels eliminating the effects of RF interference.
