This wearable bracelet let’s you go back to work while enforcing social distancing





Are you getting tired of quarantine? Funny how we always wished for work from home and now we are itching to go back to our offices. Suddenly the water cooler chit chat and commute means so much more to us. We don’t have a vaccine yet but soon some of us non-essential workers may have to return to the work lives we knew before the pandemic and it is crucial we still follow the rules of social distancing + wearing PPE so that we are minimizing the risk while still helping rebuild the economy. Romware has designed a wearable gadget that can help us navigate through the new normal safely till we have a vaccine.

Romware’s bracelet helps to reinforce the social distancing guidelines as more of us return to work. The digital device monitors the employees’ location and warns them if they are too close to each other. Initially designed for industries such as construction, logistic, warehousing, manufacturing, and port services, this bracelet can be used by any large company that cannot function remotely and relies on labor. Whenever employees are closer than 6 feet they will feel a vibration that warns them. The bracelet has a geo-fencing feature that allows you to set a limit for how many employees can be in a specific area to ensure there are no large gatherings. One of its most effective features is that it enables contact tracing, so if someone does fall sick the employer can easily track anyone who may have been in contact and take necessary measures.

The employees’ privacy is guaranteed and the bracelet uses Ultra-Wideband which means it doesn’t require a data connection. However, it can be used with data too if there is a need for contact tracing which will access the employee’s location. All data will be deleted after 14 days and it doesn’t require the employees to disclose anything they don’t want to. The personal wearable device is only used for social distancing purposes and to ensure the safety of the workforce as long as the threat of the pandemic still looms over our heads. Romware is doing it’s best to follow ‘prevention is better than cure’ strategy and we agree.
