Many workers are exposed to the danger of electrical contact injuries everyday and so Proxxi created a wearable voltage sensor that detects energised equipment and notifies the user of danger. The Proxxi device analyses the wearers proximity to an energised device and notifies them via multi-sensory alerts if they get too close. 

The data produced by the wearable device is recorded through an app and made available to the whole company. The app allows users to change between low voltage settings and high voltage settings, making it a solution for both qualified and unqualified workers in a variety of industries. 

By reporting data back to an app, Proxxi provides real-time and historical access to data whenever an interaction with energised equipment occurs. Proxxi provides that fail safe backup to virtually eliminate the risk and provides companies peace of mind and visibility to keep employees safe.
