Keeping your people and your business safe

through remote temperature, heart rate and activity monitoring

In this new world, all parts of society are required to make significant changes in behaviour to contain the spread of COVID-19. This will continue to have an enormous impact on the management of workforce patterns and operations in many organisations.

Preparations are underway to ease the restrictions that were imposed to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, and for businesses, finding a new norm means implementing systems to protect organisations, their workforces and their customers. CREW, the Covid-19 Remote Early Warning system is here to help provide reassurance for organisations, their staff and customers.

Social distancing and lone working welfare solutions will be key factors as businesses and society seek to establish new operational norms whilst keeping COVID-19 at bay. One key element to this new way of working will be ensuring that individuals entering organisations, whether employees or suppliers, are not potential vectors for COVID-19.

The Solution

To assist organisations roll out their return to work safety protocols, CREW the COVID-19 Remote Early Warning System, has been developed to remotely identify workers who are presenting with an elevated temperature, that may be indicative of them being symptomatic of COVID-19. When an individual’s temperature shows signs over a specific period of time, of being elevated above the expected average, they are alerted to take appropriate action.

The solution innovatively combines existing technologies to allow early detection of symptoms of the Coronavirus.

The COVID-19 Remote Early Warning System (CREW) consists of:

  • A wearable Bluetooth connected axillary thermometer to measure body temperature.
  • A wearable or smartphone running the CREW app which retrieves the temperature data from the Bluetooth thermometer, and sends it to the CREW Cloud Gateway. Activity and heart rate data can be included in the case of a wearable device.
  • Additional sensors that monitor other metrics such as respiratory rate and SpO2 can be incorporated into the solution.
  • CREW Cloud Gateway which acts as the central hub for all sensor and connectivity.
  • CREW Alarms and Dashboards is the application which monitors the incoming data and generates automatic alarms if temperature thresholds are breached.

Together during COVID-19

CREW has been developed in a true multidisciplinary Academic, Business and Clinical ecosystem, collaborating effectively as a virtual team, between 8 West Consulting, the ASSERT Centre University College Cork (UCC) and the Tyndall National Institute UCC.
