How does the SCRAM CAM work?
The SCRAM CAM bracelet works by using transdermal testing. This means that the device monitors the amount of alcohol that is excreted through the skin. The device continuously monitors the excretions of the skin and can detect whether or not the individual has consumed alcohol. This device is very helpful because it limits that time between tests that had previously been used in most DUI cases. Now it is possible to determine if a person has consumed alcohol at any time when the individual is wearing the device.
