Saving Lives.

PROXXI is the world’s first real-time, multi-voltage connected wearable. It notifies the wearer by vibration (haptic feedback) when they get too close to an electric current, and helps reinforce the limits of approach. Targeted at utility workers and those in industry at risk of electrocution, it is a device that provides companies piece of mind and visibility through connected monitoring and insights into employee safety.

Each year, over 2000 electric utility employees in North America are electrocuted, with thousands more exposed to this danger in other industries. Each of these incidences costs between $1-4 Million dollars in insurance expenses, resulting in $3 billion per year expense. Currently, there are no ambient, connected, always-on devices used to detect electricity. Workers rely on process to de-energize and follow lockout procedures. PROXXI provides that fail safe backup to virtually eliminate the risk.
