mSafety is a business-to-business communication platform for the development of turnkey customer solutions within mobile health and safety. It combines a secure cloud solution with a connected wearable, providing a development-ready platform upon which technology providers can build remote monitoring applications for service providers. Leveraging IoT connectivity, mSafety reduces technical complexity and increases the safety and personal freedom of end-users, while delivering valuable data to the companies that deploy it.

The mSafety platform consists of two main components: a wearable and a cloud backend.
The wearable is directly connected to the Internet, without the need for pairing with a mobile phone. It features in-device sensors to monitor activity, heart rate, sleep and stress, as well as a GPS for location tracking. In addition, it can be connected to external sensors via Bluetooth or NFC. A built-in eSIM means the wearable remains continuously connected in all environments.
The backend provides the fundamental structures required for mSafety wearables to interact with the customer’s cloud backend servers in a secure and scalable way. It enables easy onboarding of wearables and software updates.
In practice, an end user wears the mSafety device, which receives health data from a connected customer sensor. Information is displayed on the device and sent, end-to-end encrypted, to the customer’s backend – through the mSafety cloud backend.
The functionality of the customer’s backend server and what it does with the data varies from case to case. For example, the backend server at an adventure sports company could track a kite surfer out on the water and alert the coast guard if an emergency alarm is received. Alternatively, the backend server at an elderly care home might register fall alarms and issue alerts to care staff. In a healthcare scenario, the backend of a diabetes application could collect information from external glucose sensors and provide insights to the user, the family and healthcare provider.
mSafety can be used to make people safer in a range of different situations – wherever real-time, continuously-connected, bi-directional communication is an advantage for the user and service provider.
It enables, for example, the continuous monitoring of people with chronic health conditions or the elderly. It can also be used to monitor individuals or groups of people involved in high-risk activities either at work or leisure.
Typical service providers can be divided into three broad categories: health and medical, outdoor leisure and workplace safety. See breakdown below:
Examples include the elderly or those with chronic health conditions, employees in hazardous work environments such as power generation or forestry, or people engaged in outdoor leisure activities with an elevated risk level, such as climbing or kayaking.
The mSafety platform – including back end solution and wearable – is due to be launched in early 2020.
