2019 Wearables

Ergonomics device


The REFLEX is a discreet wearable device that aims to reduce musculoskeletal injuries among industrial workers. The belt-mounted device automatically detects high-risk postures and improper biomechanics – including excessive bending, reaching or twisting – and provides real-time feedback to the worker in the form of a vibration. This feedback, coupled with friendly competition among co-workers, may result in a reduction in high-risk postures and injury rates.
