Kenzen patch monitors heat stress

Real-time alerts keep workers safe from heat injuries


Kenzen has launched a real-time worker heat monitoring system.

The cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) system includes a wearable device worn by workers on their arm which alerts both the worker and their supervisor when core body temperature is too high.

Real-time alerts allow for immediate intervention and worker safety from heat injuries.

The wearable, via its advanced sensor compliment, monitors multiple physiological and environmental metrics, including heart rate, activity, skin and ambient temperatures.

Together, this sensor data allows for the real-time prediction of core body temperature, providing alerts to workers and supervisors when temperatures approach unsafe levels.
