How SoterCoach Solves the Problem
SoterCoach uses biofeedback to a alert a worker to high-risk movements while they are performing their tasks. The haptic and audible notifications provide internal learning to alter nerve pathways and is one of the most effective tools for self-correction and increasing awareness. Three main components of risk are tracked: poor technique, awkward static postures, and high intensity.
Throughout the program of SoterCoach, biofeedback risk alerts are tailored to the individual and promote proprioception, encouraging better awareness of one’s movement patterns.
Workers wear the device on the back or shoulder for 2-4 weeks. Real-time audio and haptic feedback facilitate awareness
Daily 3-5 minute micro-learning tutorials delivered through the app (on the communal table or a phone)
Ergonomic awareness improves. Reducing the average number of daily hazardous movements by 30-60%
How SoterCoach Measures Intensity
Soter Analytics has built a system that self-learns and gives personalized feedback to each individual worker, helping them avoid the movements that might increase their own risk of injury. Soter has conceptualized and built an Intensity Model that measures how difficult movements are for individuals. Among many characteristics it will consider the velocity, jerkiness, and bend angle at the completion of the movement.
This is a step-change improvement from traditional standards that only estimate weights that people could safely move but completely ignore a person’s inherent strength and fatigue.
Workers Will Never Forget To Wear It
The Soter device can be mounted on any piece of existing personal hardware via our smart adapters. With 30-day battery life, once attached, the Soter device does not have to be removed until the program is completed.
The Charging Hub
Launch and scale safety wearable devices across your organization in just a few hours. Charge up to 40 devices simultaneously and access data directly from the tablet without the need for WiFi.
Available Training Programs
Manual Handling Training would help to increase awareness of posture and body mechanics through the biofeedback from the device, together with the Manual Handling Coaching program, delivered through the mobile app.
Prevent severe injuries by providing an Early Intervention Training program. Thorough technique coaching, stretching and advice are offered to intervene and prevent the beginning of a strain becoming a recordable injury. Help your workers to manage early signs of injury, without taking time away from work.
