September 29, 2021: Vancouver, BC – Tracesafe Inc., (“TraceSafe”) (CSE: TSF) global leader in location-aware Internet of Things (IoT) platforms for large-scale industrial and enterprise operations, announced today the signing of an agreement with the River Oaks Baptist School (ROBS) in Houston, Texas to provide health and safety technology for over 1,000 students and staff.
Trace Safe will provide wristband wearables that are aimed at reducing educational disruption in the case of COVID-19 infection. Targeted contact tracing thanks to the wearables and easy-to-use dashboard will mitigate the need for an entire grade to quarantine for 14 days — which was the case in previous school years.
“Our goal is to keep kids in school--safely and responsibly,” said Associate Head ofSchool for Operations at River Oaks Baptist School, Paul Mayhew. “With the newTraceSafe wearable bands, we are able to identify close contacts of a COVID case on campus with more precision and accuracy. That means we are not quarantining students unnecessarily and keeping more kids in school safely."
IoT wristbands are preferable to contact tracing via phone app because they require much less expensive technology and protect the privacy of students — they are only activated once the child is in the school building, thanks to TraceSafe’s newly developed customizable beacons. This major innovation increases the battery life of beacons and decreases the environmental footprint by disabling the beacons when they’re not in use.
ROBS'IoT wristbands have been designed for form as well as function. The small holes in the wristband allow for both adjustable sizing and the addition of badges and decals to add an element of fun for the students.
