Supporting your team
Bodytrak keeps sectors across the globe running safely, from production facilities to emergency services and the military. Our solution enables live monitoring via our easy-to-use Dashboard interface, ensuring entire teams are kept safe from incidents while improving productivity.
Bodytrak enhances the safety of your team in harsh or remote environments by continuously monitoring their physiological data, allowing them to focus on getting the job done. Physiological monitoring captures data from workers to ensure they are not operating beyond their individual limits. When pre-determined thresholds are exceeded, the user and operational team are immediately alerted. This, together with our geolocation feature, enables the user to be located and assisted rapidly to avoid any incidents before it’s too late.
Monitor real-time physiological data to protect your team in extreme environments. Firefighters are routinely exposed to extreme temperatures which can quickly lead to heat-related illness and have damaging health consequences. It can result in the failure of multiple organs and, in severe cases, lead to death. Police officers experience extremely high levels of stress that can impair their decision-making ability and cause serious consequences for public safety and the force. Equally, a high-stress event may be an indication that rapid support is required. Bodytrak provides early warnings in real-time alongside geolocation services to enable critical intervention and support where required.
Track physiological data to safeguard your personnel. Bodytrak enables performance optimisation and safeguarding of military service personnel during training exercises and operational tours. Bodytrak is contracted by defence organisations including the Defence Science Technology Laboratory (supplying specialist science & technology services to the UK’s Ministry of Defence and wider government) and the Defense Innovation Unit (through the Army Contracting Command of the US Army).
Scientific and Research
Increase participation in physiology studies with a non-invasive cost-effective accurate solution. We understand the need for high-quality data without having to sacrifice the comfort and dignity of your participants is imperative. Whether you’re running a university research facility or state-of-the-art laboratory, Bodytrak effortlessly tracks core body temperature, heart rate, heart rate variability and additional metrics to help support your research.
News & Insights
What industries has it been deployed in?
Bodytrak has already been deployed in various industries to prevent heat stress, including paper mills, metal smelting facilities, lone working, and also in logistics to reduce incidents caused by driver fatigue. It has also been trialled in the fire service and military.
How much space will the Bodytrak devices take up in the facility?
The Bodytrak single Charging Dock or multi-bay Charging Hub is normally located in a control room or site hut so that users can easily access the CommPack and their usage can be monitored.
The single Charging Dock is no bigger than a standard smartphone while the multi-bay Charging Hub is no larger than an A4 piece of paper/copy paper and fits up to 10 CommPacks. Both charging units need to be within reach of a power outlet, on a flat surface and away from sources of water and dirt.
What happens if a team member roams outside their defined zones?
Bodytrak offers geofencing which creates a virtual geographic boundary around a specified area using GPS. If a team member roams outside of these preset areas an alert will be triggered to the user and Dashboard to prevent incidents.
What kind of data is Bodytrak gathering?
The Bodytrak solutions focuses on capturing the following data;
- Core Body Temperature
- Heart rate
- Heart rate variability
- Physiological Strain Index
- Man down
- Noise exposure
How accurate are the readings taken by Bodytrak?
Bodytrak captures real-time physiological data using in-ear sensors, analysed by machine learning (ML) on the device and in the cloud to provide critical insights. Due to its close proximity to the hypothalamus, the temperature control centre of the body, and since the eardrum receives its blood supply from the carotid artery, the ear is an excellent body site to measure core body temperature and heart rate accurately.
Heart rate data from Bodytrak shows a mean absolute error of 2.87 beats per minute compared to a control ECG device, and CBT data from Bodytrak shows a mean absolute error of 0.18°C compared to a gastro-intestinal pill. Our fatigue scores have been validated during trials where mental fatigue, physical fatigue or drowsiness was induced to ensure precise data. This is a strong indication of the effectiveness of our solution.
How long will the battery last on the Bodytrak device?
On average the CommPack will last up to 8+ hours of continuous use, depending on the connectivity method and signal strength.
How long does it take to charge the Bodytrak CommPack?
When the CommPack is at 0% it will take approximately 4 hours to reach 100% and be ready to use again.
