Stanley partners with Ansell Inteliforz as it grows its AI Health and Safety offering


Workplace health and safety experts, Stanley, has partnered with Ansell Inteliforz Motion Series , a wearable sensor technology for the hands and wrists that helps reduce risky movements that can lead to work-related musculoskeletal disorders.

This latest partnership forms part of Stanley’s continued push into the Artificial Intelligence (AI) health and safety product market.

The Inteliforz pod identifies risky hand and wrist movements with a small wearable device that is inserted into a hand wrap which can then be worn over a protective glove.  It can capture up to 60 hand and wrist motions every minute to assess risk, allowing workers to view their movements and undertake training and coaching opportunities if needed.  

If a worker makes a movement that might put them at risk of injury, the device delivers a haptic buzz to remind them to adjust position.  The sensor can be removed and recharged at the end of every shift. The charging station also establishes data communication with cloud services to upload the Wearable Pod Sensor data daily to the Cloud.  This data is then collated for the worker and management team to view and to help the business to implement health and safety training changes as required.

Graham Sharp, Managing Director of Stanley said: “We are excited to be partnering with Ansell to offer the Inteliforz product to the UK market.  This is the latest in the range of AI health and safety products we have recently launched in the UK and complements our Modjoul SmartBelt and WearHealth products, this time focusing specifically on musculoskeletal disorders in the hand and wrists.  

“Hand and wrist injuries are one of the most common injury issues to arise in the workplace and often occur when working on repetitive tasks such as food processing, assembly line work and working with computers. This exciting product helps to reduce the risk that comes with tasks that use continuous hand movements and has been shown to reduce risky hand and wrist movements up to 20% in three months.  

“One of the most important aspects of this product is the amount of proprietary data it generates,  allowing businesses to learn and adjust their training accordingly.  AI products like this one are currently transforming safety in the workplace and will in turn save businesses both time and money that would otherwise be lost to injury.”

Stanley’s other AI health and safety products are the Modjoul SmartBelt and the WearHealth exoskeleton suit analysis.  The Modjoul SmartBelt is an innovative AI device that prevents injury through real-time feedback and data analysis. The device is attached to a belt and is designed to measure a range of workplace risks including back risk, repetitive motion, temperature control,  noise levels, PPE compliance, forklift truck collision avoidance and lone worker safety.  

The WearHealth exoskeleton suits, match companies with exoskeleton suits designed to help to improve workers’ safety, health and wellbeing  and to make sure that their usual daily tasks can be performed without getting injured or suffering from musculoskeletal disorders like back pain linked to repetitive movement.
