Smart Glove

OrthoFit provides smart wearables embedded with accurate sensors to track relevant hand and wrist actions during an entire workday.
OrthoFit's Smart Glove effortlessly tracks relevant hand and wrist actions during an entire workday without getting in the way. Our glove continuously watches hand and wrist movements in every direction to develop the most accurate possible ergonomic assessment. Data is regularly transmitted to our software platform via a secure wireless connection, keeping all the information we record on your behalf safe and easily accessible. Our goal is to make risk assessments as comfortable and easy as possible.

Risk/Injury Analysis Software

The OrthoFit software package streamlines data analysis, provides key metrics, and highlights risk areas for health and safety officers.
OrthoFit's software package securely handles data all the way from our Smart Glove to your computer. We have developed a series of calculations to determine the likelihood of injury for glove users, using data from a full workday to predict the likelihood of injury occuring. We analyze and extract meaningful information from the data we collect and make it available anywhere via our web platform. Our objective is to give more than just a risk assessment; it is to explain the factors that are putting an individual at risk and provide insight on ways to fix them.
