How SoterCoach Works

SoterCoach puts the worker first through human-centric design which makes it very easy to use, manage and scale across organizations of any industry and size. The solution implementation process takes less than 1 hour for 100’s of workers, with a tangible result observed after 10 days of use.

step 01
How we work

Employees wear the device on back or shoulder for 2-4 weeks, getting real-time feedback

step 02
How we work

Follow ergonomic coaching programs, delivered via the App or a communal tablet, for 3-5 minutes daily

step 03
How we work

Employees improve their ergonomic safety by reducing the average number of daily hazardous movements by 30-60%

The Intensity Model

Our team of doctors, ergonomists, technical engineers, data scientists and movement specialists conducted a 2-year study. The intensity model was conceptualized and built based on an individual’s natural movements and synthetic movements. Over 10,000 high intensity and low intensity movements were recorded, and the device was taught to distinguish them.

The Soter device does not measure the weight of objects but rather the intensity of a movement – the movement is defined as highly intensive when a person finds it physically difficult to perform. Every time a person makes a movement (e.g., lifting an object) the Soter wearable device collects high-frequency Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) data. This data is fed into a neural network which, based on our 2-year study, is trained to understand if the person finds the particular movement difficult or not.

Through machine learning, the intensity model continually self-learns to calculate how the worker’s risk is adjusting.

Designed to
Engage Workers

Knowing that modern workers must wear some form of apparatus daily, like helmets, vests, headsets, and other equipment, we have designed the Soter device to be mounted on any piece of existing personal hardware via smart adapters.

With the 30-day battery life of the Soter devices, once attached, they do not have to be removed until the program is completed.

The Charging Hub

The fully-autonomous charging hub with an integrated tablet to launch and scale the solution in just a few hours. The hub ensures the rapid check-in/check-out process, provides straight access to the data and charges of up to 40 devices simultaneously. Workers receive training content via a communal tablet. For even faster check-in/check-out can be connected with barcode scanners and scan guns.

The hub fully is independent of a corporate IT-resources and works without Wi-Fi due to the integrated LTE module. Can be easily rotated between multiple sites.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • HOW DOES THE DEVICE WORK?

    - Measures all the bending, twisting and lifting movements you make.

    - Calculates if the movement is hazardous.

    - If it is hazardous, the device gives an audible and vibration notification.

    - See “what is a hazardous movement” for types of notification.

  • WHAT IS A HAZARDOUS MOVEMENT?

    ​A hazardous movement is any movement associated with an increased risk of injury.

    ​Poor lifting technique, forward bending with low intensity > One short beep & vibration.

    ​Poor lifting technique, forward bending with high intensity (heavy load requiring effort) > Three long beeps & vibration.

    Twisting (rotation of the trunk) >Three short beeps & vibration.

    Repetition of any of the above listed movements within a minute is not notified but tracked in our data as a separate risk.

    ​Sustained awkward postures (either bent forward or twisted) is also tracked in the data but no notification is given to the user at the time the movement is performed.

  • WHAT IS THE SOTERCOACH PROGRAM?

    A 20-day program to help coach you to use better working postures and avoid ergonomic injury.

    There are 2 stages:

    - 8 hours without notifications to calibrate our algorithms.

    - 19-day Awareness and Improvement program.

    It consists of a wearable device and mobile application.

    You must wear the device and synchronize with the app every working day to successfully complete the program.
