StrongArm Technologies, founded by Sean Petterson in 2011, is one of the world's leading safety science companies. Creators of the ErgoSkeleton and the FUSE safety platforms, StrongArm is dedicated to improving workplace safety for blue-collar workers in the USA and abroad.
The below video is an edit GRAFX CO. edited in order to introduce people to StrongArm the company, the motivations behind it, and the people making it all happen.
StrongArm Tech and GRAFX CO. joined forces to create a series of training videos aimed at giving an entry level understanding of the FUSE Platform. Designed to enable new users to understand and utilize the technology in their daily routine as quickly as possible. The FUSE Platform is based on three main criteria:
COLLECT - A lightweight IoT enabled risk monitoring device collects data on multiple ergonomic and environmental risk factors.
ANALYZE - Machine learning algorithms assess safety risk and leverage a real-time dashboard to explore factor correlations and understand injuries.
INTERVENE - Better understand the factors that contribute to injury and deploy more relevant, effective interventions - mechanical or behavioral - and monitor impact.
This video is a basic overview of the FUSE platform and associated technologies. Consisting of three main components, the Dock, the Sensor, and the cloud-enabled Dashboard software, the system is designed to collect data throughout a worker's shift. The data collected by each FUSE device uploads into the cloud and is instantly processed through our proprietary machine-learning algorithm. Each data point makes our algorithm smarter, faster, and more accurate in detecting safety risks and identifying root cause.
The Fuse dock is the main charging/information-upload station of the system. At the beginning of a shift workers are automatically assigned a sensor, which is connected to their individual cloud analytics. At the end of a shift the sensor is returned and all the days data is automatically uploaded to the cloud for analysis. This video gives a brief introduction to the FUSE Dock.
The FUSE Sensor is a risk monitoring device that uses machine learning to capture, and analyze the risk of musculoskeletal injuries. FUSE runs data through an algorithm to generate a given worker's Safety Score - an ergonomic risk metric. FUSE helps StrongArm understand the factors that contribute to injury and deliver the appropriate interventions. This video gives a brief introduction to the FUSE Sensor.
