Beat the heat
Heat stress management for empowered workers
An early warning system for worker safety
We provide companies with a novel solution to manage heat stress by connecting their workers with a Smart Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Empowering the worker to be equipped with an intelligent wearable, emphasizing the human side of safety
Obtaining relevant, real-time physiological data where it matters, allowing a proactive, risk-based approach to heat stress
Bringing proper data to safety professionals, supporting them in making decisions about exposure limits and worker safety
Meet the epyTracker™
our solution for heat stress management based on a thorough understanding of our bodies’ thermoregulation
We connect workers with a Smart PPE that employs novel sensors to continuously monitor thermoregulation based on our proprietary ThermoTwin® model, allowing to detect early signs of heat stress without interrupting activity – increasing productivity and worker engagement in the company’s overall success.
The epyTracker™ can be worn in two locations:
epyTracker integrates into any hard hat using our disposable sweat band
epyTracker integrated into a torso belt

Our proprietary physiological model continuously measures thermoregulation with the epyTracker™ based on real-time measurement of all relevant vital signs:
Core Body Temperature
Communication via BLE
Sync recorded data once per week
Live visualization via app
Integrates into intelligent garments
Re-charge once per week
Swiss patented technology
We present the world’s first physiological and personalized continuous monitoring of thermoregulation consisting of four levels of technology and IP:
Our ThermoTwin® is a proprietary physiological model of thermoregulation that has been developed by experts from ETH over the past 3 years and is based on occupational health and safety standards.
Our product is engineered in-house and critical parts are produced and manufactured exclusively in Switzerland using high-quality materials and processes.
Our wearable is capable of acquiring all relevant vital signs for thermoregulation, including the measurement of sweat rate and total sweat loss as an indication of impending dehydration.
We provide a complete software solution that brings data driven decision making to companies to protect workers and balance productivity.
