The Wear-It Study: Using Wearable Technologies to Characterise Physical Interactions in Workplaces
This Wear-It Study poster was presented at the Infection Prevention 2023 Conference in Liverpool.
The study found that remote deployment of wearables in the workplace for the collection of detailed contact data is achievable during a pandemic. Workplaces and workers are willing to join such a study and helped to collect contact data exploitable by transmission risk models. The data collected provided new insights into patterns of workplace contacts that are relevant to understanding transmission.
