How Wearable Devices Are Creating Innovation in the Workplace
A wearable that monitors exposure to radiation
For many professionals, such as health care workers, construction workers, and those who work in the airline industry, radiation can be an occupational hazard, but they aren’t always aware of the levels of radiation or of their risk for exposure. A wearable device called Dosime monitors exposure to radiation. In wearable mode, the Dosime device can be clipped to clothes, purses, backpacks or briefcases for on-the-go readings, capturing real-time radiation exposure in the environment and storing radiation records. The device can also be connected to an app that records radiation records. If the Dosime device detects exposure levels that exceed prescribed alert levels, the device immediately alerts the user with a visual alarm, as well as through configurable text, email and audible mobile alerts.
