The longer a person is in an uncomfortable position, the higher the risk of earning injury. This is especially true for those whose activity is associated with lifting weights and complex motor movements. Reflex personal measuring gadget technology allows you to ensure the prevention of such situations.
The idea is to fix a device of a complex of gyroscopes and accelerometers on a person’s belt, which will fix the position in space of both the worker’s body and its individual parts. For example, a common mistake - lifting heavy objects from the floor due to the extension of the back, and not with the help of leg strength. Reflex monitors such situations and gives a signal.
When a person takes a potentially dangerous position or performs risky work, the gadget signals this with a slight vibration and at the same time records information about the place, time and type of incident in memory. On the one hand, this is a way to remind the user that the risks. On the other hand, it is the collection and analysis of statistical data within the workshop or the entire enterprise — how much, on what sections, how often, and why people risk health. And then there is a competitive moment when meticulous adherence to safety can be confirmed by the testimony of the device and earn the prize.
Reflex devices began to be tested last year, and it turned out that in 12 months it reduced the number of skeletal injuries by 40%, and test subjects began to complain of back pain 56% less. As a result of the tests, it was possible to optimize the workflow so that the number of manufacturing operations with the risk of injuries decreased by 84%! No wonder that with such indicators the startup has already received $ 4.5 million of investment, and will soon launch Reflex into mass production.
