Safe Spacer automatically alerts users if they come within 2 meters / 6 feet of other devices, so they can focus on their work and not their surroundings. Selectable vibration, LED light and auditory alerts provide effective protection.

Safe Spacer uses Ultra-wideband (UWB), the same technology introduced in the latest devices like Apple’s iPhone 11, to achieve precise ranging between devices. It’s up to 10x more accurate than traditional Bluetooth (10 cm vs. 1 meter). And unlike Bluetooth, Safe Spacer won’t lose accuracy when multiple devices are in close proximity.

More ways to wear, so people actually will

Safe Spacer is worn with a bracelet, on a belt, or on a lanyard. Giving users more ways to wear this ensures it works in the widest range of applications, and most importantly maximizes compliance.

Easy to keep clean
