Our unrivalled safety insights allow you to enhance the health and safety practice in your workplace by preventing incidents related to heat stress, fatigue and noise exposure.
Smart Safety Solution
Designed with usability and comfort at the centre, Bodytrak is the only non-invasive product of its kind on the market. 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. This is one of the main reasons why Bodytrak is extremely effective.
Once the data is measured via the in-ear sensors, it is automatically analysed by our proprietary algorithms that are specifically designed for the Bodytrak device. During the analysis it is compared against a user’s baseline to provide more individualised insights and alerts for each user. These are sent to both the user (via audio prompts) and supervisor (via the real-time Dashboard) so that intervention can be enabled, and incidents prevented.
The algorithms have been vigorously tested to ensure accuracy. In a controlled laboratory trial sponsored by a customer we were able to demonstrate that the Bodytrak heart rate sensor had a mean absolute error of 2.87 beats per minute compared to an ECG device, and CBT data from Bodytrak showed a mean absolute error of 0.18°C compared to a gastro-intestinal pill. These high levels of agreement illustrate the accuracy of the Bodytrak solution when measuring heart rate and CBT.
The Bodytrak Platform integrates with HERE Maps geo solutions to provide precise X & Y location upon alert detection, map view of all workers with health status indicator and geofencing to control access to hazardous areas and identify when a team member roams outside a zoned area. Crucially, Bodytrak also provides Z level vertical positioning to identify the storey where the worker is located.
Safety as a Service
Our safety solution is provided as a fully supported safety as a service over a 1-to-5-year contract depending on preference. The service includes the software subscription, accessories, and ongoing customer support. There are purchase and lease finance options available for the hardware. Whilst the total fixed contract cost works out to no more than a cup of coffee per day, the return on investment is significant against the estimated $163.9 billion of preventable work-related injury costs in 2020 alone (National Safety Council).

How many users can be monitored using the Bodytrak Platform and how people can have access to it?
The number of Bodytrak Platform users is essentially unlimited. There is no restriction on the number of supervisors/safety managers that can access the Platform and receive an alert if an individual exceeds the preset thresholds. User access can be managed on the Bodytrak Platform.
Can I use the Bodytrak device to make calls?
The Bodytrak device has Bluetooth compatibility which will allow you to channel audio through the Earpiece if connected to your smartphone, however, you are unable to use the device to directly make outbound calls or receive incoming calls.
Can I use Bodytrak to locate team members?
Yes, the Bodytrak solution offers a feature that utilises GPS positioning and WiFi and Bluetooth® triangulation so that you can quickly locate team members both indoors and out. It can also provide vertical positioning to determine which floor a user is on.
How long can I wear the Bodytrak device for?
Designed with comfort in mind, when fitted correctly you should forget you're wearing the Earpiece, so it can be worn for long periods of time. The CommPack however, should last for approximately 8 -12 hours of continuous use before it needs to be recharged.
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
Does Bodytrak collect personal information about the team and users?
Bodytrak monitors and captures physiological data to protect the team from incidents caused by heat stress and fatigue. The standard Bodytrak solution does not capture any personal information. The client has the option to use non-personal identifiers for usernames, as opposed to the users' actual names.
Is an internet connection required for the Bodytrak solution?
An internet connection via WiFi or cellular is required to transmit data to the Bodytrak Platform. The CommPack will store data internally regardless of whether there is an internet connection or not and will continue to notify users of physiological and battery alerts via audio prompts. Once connectivity is restored the CommPack will transmit the stored and live data to the Platform.
Does Bodytrak needs its own dedicated IT server on site?
No. The Bodytrak Platform runs in the cloud so you do not need to install any additional hardware or software. You can easily access the Platform from a web browser on a computer, tablet or mobile device.
What is the warranty for each device?
Each Bodytrak device comes with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty, subject to terms and conditions. Extended warranties are also available.
