This wearable motion sensor alert system was designed to prevent workplace injuries. From Soter Analytics, the SoterSpine is a small device industrial workers can wear that acts as a musculoskeletal monitor. This means it tracks the wearer's movements, looks for dangerous movement and makes suggestions to prevent the risk of back injury.

The heat and water-proof motion sensor alert is supposed to be worn continuously and can withstand all kinds of conditions. In addition to making personalized suggestions to the employee, the machine learning-empowered gadget also offers business insights to companies. This invention also helps employers save money when it comes to less employee sick days and other healthcare costs.

Wearable technology could also be used to improve the overall wellness of industrial workers.
