Dynaback is a smart T-shirt that makes a full back diagnosis and helps managers to keep track of workers’ health and safety.
How the Dynaback T-shirt worksThrough an array of sensors, connected to an electronic chip and battery, the Dynaback T-shirt captures body movements of the user and sends an alert whenever irregular movements are being performed. After capturing trunk movements, the data is then stored and processed on a server.
Dynaback's mission: worker safetyUsing data on human movements to better understand the reasons for musculoskeletal problems, Dynaback aims to decrease musculoskeletal risk at work and boost employees' productivity and well-being in the long term.
Future development of DynabackThe Dynaback garment is currently a working prototype at Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) 8. So far, data has been collected and processed in real-life environments during several trials. Existing prototypes rely on wires for connectivity of the sensors and microchip. With SmartX support, the goal is to adapt the wires to make them more reliable and easier to produce going forward.
