Proxxi

Wearable, connected electrical voltage protection for industrial workers.

Proxxi creates a product to radically reduce risk of electrical contact injuries and electrocution. It protects workers with an always-on, always-aware solution that warns workers before contact with energized components.

Designed for industrial workers at risk of electrical contact injury, Proxxi is a device that provides companies peace of mind and visibility through centralized monitoring and insights into employee safety.

Each year, thousands of employees suffer electrical contact injuries, with millions exposed to this danger on a daily basis. Electrical contact injury incidences cost millions in insurance payout and more lost to operations. Currently, workers rely on processes to de-energize and follow lockout procedures. Proxxi provides a fail safe backup to virtually eliminate the risk.
