How does RadiTrace proactively help with Social Distancing?
The wristband’s vibraton function is intended to promote compliance with the social-distancing requirement of authorities around the globe. It acts as a reminder to both parties and helps with the social awkwardness that might arise from having to ask someone to move away from one’s close proximity.
How does the system help with Contact Tracing?
As the incubation period of Covid 19 leads to a significant delay in the onset of illness, it can be very difficult or impossible for patients to accurately identify those whom they have been in close contact with over the relevant period. Indeed, they may be too ill to do so at all.
With RadiTrace, a User of the system who subsequently is diagnosed with Covid-19, may have their close contacts over a given time period, rapidly identified through the RadiTrace portal by their employer. This allows any close contacts to self-isolate pending testing for Covid-19 and to greatly inhibit further spread of the disease.
The system facilitates filtering by cumulative contact time, for example, 15 minutes.
*The European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines define a “close contact” as a person having had face-to-face contact with a COVID-19 case within 2 metres and greater than 15 minutes.
