What is the SmartShoulder?
The SmartShoulder is a wearable that helps keep service engineers safe, even in remote areas. It features:
- A panic button and man-down alarm that trigger calls for assistance from HQ in the event of emergencies.
- Integrated LED lights that activate automatically when the wearer enters a low light environment. This way, the wearer has both hands available for the job at hand.

Uncontrolled user testing by service engineers in the field
The project is currently in Phase 4: We’ve constructed durable Prototypes for uncontrolled user testing and validation. If the results are positive, production of the First Series can begin.
A range of additional functions could be integrated in the future, including health sensors (posture tracking & correction), location sharing, camera assistance (e.g. for educational purposes), communication with HQ and colleagues, power banks, data logging/onsite reporting etc.
