Wearables for staff and patients

Bespoke wearables have been designed and developed in collaboration with healthcare professionals for use by staff and patients in hospitals

High fidelity location using wearables

Pathogens spread by four means in hospitals: direct contact; indirect contact; droplets; and airborne.   The wearable sensors keep track of the opportunities for pathogens to pass from one person to the next

Ergonomic and long battery life

The devices have been designed to complement existing ID pass wearing for staff, and existing patient ID tags for patients.  The devices use low power radio, and battery life is in excess of a week, with recharge via standard USB chargers

Hubs collect important environmental context such as the state of ventilation

Ventilation status

The state of the ventilation is particularly important for understanding the risk of airborne transmission

Other measurements

Over time, hubs enable other environmental data collection, that may be relevant to the risks of cross-infection but have not been studied before (temperature, humidity, ambient noise, volatile chemical presence, etc)


The wearable communicate to hubs, and hubs communicate to the cloud via Wifi.  Where Wifi is patchy, hubs can pass data along to another hub that has a connection

WebApp for healthcare users

A WebApp interface enables healthcare workers to conduct contact tracing automatically.  When a new infection is discovered, the name of the infected patient or staff member is entered.  The WebApp instantly produces the list of people who have been exposed, or places that maybe contaminated

The healthcare worker can see details of the relevant encounters so they can apply their judgement on the best infection control mitigation

Designed with and for healthcare workers and patients/public



Designed to avoid the need for addition wearables. It replaces the pass carrier for staff for example


Long battery life

Designed for a battery life exceeding a week (for staff) and potentially much longer of patients. Easily recharged using standard USB



Developed using medical grade polymers to enable cleaning and re-use rather than disposal. Long life and can be put through usual electronic recycling pathways at end of life


Contribution to net zero

Avoids the use of consumables caused by high levels of infection. Avoids family member visits to hospital to see overstaying patients.


Self monitoring

WebApp can see if devices have dropped off the system. Hubs can self-correct if moved


Privacy by design

Data secured in cloud service provided infrastructures. Data fully anonymised for long term research retention purposes

Expected Benefits

In-year cashable savings for NHS Trusts to enable more resource on direct care

  • Patient Outcomes

    25% fewer patient deaths and other poor patient outcomes caused by Hospital Acquired Infections

  • In-year Savings

    1% saving to Trust budget - immediate and repeating cost saving as no longer treating patients for infections

  • Capacity increase

    5% increase in capacity - with fewer overstaying patients occupying beds the hospital capacity increases

  • Clinical time saving

    90% of time saved compared to manual contact tracing - 30 hours of clinical time saved per infection case requiring tracing

  • Infection Prevention

    Insights from the data to further inform infection prevention

  • Pandemic Defence

    Protects a hospital from the next pandemic or local epidemic
