Wearable Workplace Safety Trackers

The Kinetic Reflex Warns When You're at High-Risk for Injury

— November 1, 2018 — Lifestyle
The Kinetic Reflex is a wearable piece of technology for use in the workforce by those who are in active physical roles to ensure they are taking care when performing various tasks during their shift.

The water and impact-resistant wearable works by being worn on the body and warning users when they are performing a high-risk movement that could result in injury. The data collected by the device is relayed to the company to let them know if employees are being as safe as possible or at higher risk.

The Kinetic Reflex wearable is an advanced healthcare solution that is reported to have reduced instances of unsafe posture, musculoskeletal injuries and back pain significantly when tested over the course of a year.
