Bengaluru-based Spykke Innovations, an Indian technology startup, has entered into a strategic partnership with tracesafe, global leaders in wearable technology to launch unique Safety Wristbands in India.
The smart wristband application is designed to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19 and features Bluetooth wearable technology that will assist local health authorities in containing outbreaks. The complete cloud-to-device solution with real-time location tracking gives instant alerts and notifications to admins and users. When paired to the user’s mobile app, the tamper-proof wristband regularly sends location data to the cloud. The intelligent cloud provides analytical dashboards and rule engines for quarantine management.
Spykke will be working with government bodies and local authorities to introduce this technology to manage community quarantine of incoming visitors to the state from abroad or other states in India. These smart wristbands will be provided to incoming visitors which then will be paired with their smartphone so that the health authority can monitor their quarantine geofence status. Spykke will soon begin a pilot with local authorities to run the full suite of solutions, including cloud management, mobile app, and wireless bracelets.
Speaking about the partnership, Ramani Iyer, founder and managing director, Spykke Innovations, said, “We are extremely thrilled to join hands with tracesafe to develop and manufacture these smart wristbands in India and do our part in curbing the pandemic. We strongly believe that with the introduction of this technology, we will also be able to strengthen the efforts put by health authorities to fight the spread.”
Suresh Singamsetty, chief technical officer of tracesafe added, “This partnership will help tracesafe to develop strong ties with India and through Spykke we aim to work with major governments, both national and municipal to provide customized solutions for every region.”
Spykke Innovations is looking forward to developing and manufacturing unique series of smart wearables as a part of its ‘Make-in-India’ initiative. Spykke’s aim is to localize the application and provide cutting edge solutions that will help the government and corporate sectors create a safe ecosystem.
