  • Smart wristbands, using tech from CarePredict, can monitor contact between patients in US care homes during the coronavirus pandemic.

  • The Tempo bracelets function as a call button to summon staff, a digital room key, and a health and activity tracker.

  • They use infrared light to connect to beacons on a wall in each room, creating a record of who has been near whom.

  • These devices are already ahead of plans by Apple and Google, who need access to the internet and a government-authorized contact tracing app.
