Aspen Medical signs exclusive agreement to distribute Smart Badge wearable devices
Aspen Medical has signed an exclusive agreement with Melbourne-based Smart Badge to distribute the tech company’s world-leading contact tracing wearable devices in Australia.
Smart Badge’s wearable technology will strengthen Aspen Medical’s infection prevention and control advisory solutions with its instant contact tracing, social distancing alerts and live management of event and venue capacity limits.
“Smart Badge products complement our existing COVID-19 suite of solutions which includes advisory services around infection prevention and control, training, PPE, mobile and temporary facilities and healthcare delivery teams.
“We’re seeing strong interest from across all sectors, in particular, live entertainment, food manufacturing, aged care, mining, education and construction” said Glenn Keys AO, Aspen Medical’s Founder and Executive Chairman.
Aspen Medical has been contracted by Tennis Australia to assist in planning the 2021 Australian Open. The company will be providing infection prevention and control advisory services underpinned by Smart Badge contact tracing technology.
“Twenty years on from showing the world how to host an Olympic Games, we are showing the world how to get back to work and play safety within the new normal,” he continued.
Simon Finlayson, Smart Badge’s General Manager, said the company is thrilled to be partnering with Aspen Medical.
“The coming together of a new tech product, born from the events industry, with a global provider of healthcare solutions is very unique,” said Finlayson.
“We’re optimistic that with Smart Badge underpinning Aspen Medical’s COVID-19 plans, we’ll see a return to not just work, but the social gatherings we all enjoy, sooner.”
Aspen Medical is the only commercial organisation in the world certified by the World Health Organisation as an Emergency Medical Team for infectious disease outbreaks. The company has played a significant role in containing the spread of coronavirus in Australia and overseas in the US, Canada, the UAE and across the Pacific.
