A digital solution for Infection Prevention & Control
Our products track where pathogens may have spread, enabling rapid and accurate action to prevent them infecting the next hostContact Us
Preventing disease using a digital solution for Infection Prevention & Control
An Oxford University study showed that Covid-19 was effectively eradicated on the Isle of Wight (UK) in May 2020 when a precursor to Proxximos was deployed. Since then our multi-disciplinary team has enhanced the approach further, more that quadrupling the performance. We believe our digital approach can lift the burden of communicable disease from humanity
- Fast – finds infected people before they are infectious
- Accurate – informs people of the probability of infection to empower them to take responsible decisions
- Multi-pathogen – effective against any communicable disease
Our vision - an end of communicable disease
We aim to combat and eradicate communicable disease
When enough people act together, they can drive disease out of their community or workplace. We provide them with the tools to achieve this. When people know they may be infected then they can avoid spreading a disease onwards, and the pathogen is denied it’s next hostContact Us
How is this achieved?
Digital technology can empower people to prevent communicable disease spreading
If someone falls ill or tests positive for a disease, our solution shows who else may have been exposed and where else may be contaminated. This allows the people and managers to choose how act to prevent the further spread of the disease in their communities or workplacesContact Us
What does the product look like?
A wearable solution for healthcare settings, together with a webapp for control and administration
In healthcare, staff and patients carry wearables that keep track of where pathogens may have spread. The employer and staff control the system via a webapp. The system has dials, to see what is happening, and levers, to apply controls. We are working on a mobile phone version for other settings.Contact Us
