COVID-19-tracking wearable device


Two COVID-19-related features have been added to the Reflex – a discreet smart wearable device that automatically detects unsafe work postures and provides users with real-time feedback to reduce injuries and create better work habits. Automated proximity alerts notify workers with a light vibration when they come in close contact to one other. The device’s new contact tracing feature enables managers to identify contacts between workers. If a worker tests positive for COVID-19, employers can generate a report of who could have potentially been exposed, as well as the duration of the contact.
