Wearable devices to prevent Covid-19 transmission in the workplace: a systematic review
Defined as electronic devices that can be worn on the body, wearables have seen huge growth in use prior to the pandemic. Given the heightened risk of COVID-19 transmission in workplaces and the need to ‘learn to live’ with the virus moving forwards, it is important to understand the use of bespoke wearable devices and whether any existing evidence exists for their future use.
Researchers from Theme 3 of the PROTECT NCS conducted a systematic review using bespoke search strategies and the databases: PubMed, Embase and the WHO – COVID-19 Global literature on coronavirus disease.
The aim of this systematic review was to summarise the available published evidence around wearables in the workplace using specific and repeatable search criteria.
