XTAG Medical

Our company Founder, Chris Bullock, was an early adopter of technology. Gripped by the infinite possibilities of technology to change the quality of people's lives, he set a path for Active Tagging Ltd and a lifetime commitment to innovation and invention. Chris developed one of the world’s first RFID enabled baby tagging systems.

Today, XTAG MEDICAL is the U.K.’s leading provider of infant security systems. We are always searching out knowledge and experiences, and we continue to develop world-class solutions for real-world challenges. Watch this space!


When it comes to quality, we do not compromise.

Every aspect of our operation, from sourcing and installation through to after sales care, is carefully and precisely managed to ensure we go beyond best practice.

And, if something should go wrong (we are all humans after all) we’ll quickly help to make it right.

Good Hope Maternity Unit installed XTAG Baby Tagging system in 2011. The system has proven to be very easy to use and very quick to administer, and this system has been welcomed by parents and their families. The installation team was able to adapt the system to meet the bespoke needs of our local unit, working alongside midwifery managers, security manager, and the ward teams.

Why is XTag is so good? It's a baby tagging system that does what it says – A professional team who visit the site and custom the tagging system to your needs. The 24/7 line with remote access is the biggest bonus. The support staff are helpful, and it is the little things like padded pre-addressed envelopes for returning tags that are appreciated by busy ward managers.
