Goodwin Aged Care trials Smart Badge wearable contact tracing technology
Canberra-headquartered Goodwin Aged Care has been running a trial of wearable technology for contact tracing in the event of a COVID-19 outbreak, which it hopes to extend throughout its operations for other infectious outbreaks of flu and gastroenteritis.
Goodwin has worked with medical workforce provider Aspen Medical on the trial of Smart Badge, which tracks proximity to other Smart Badges via Bluetooth. It comes with standalone software designed to control badge functionality and deliver accurate contact tracing.
