Samsung is using its wearable devices to showcase three solutions for senior care and employee safety. At the Mobile World Congress Americas expo that is happening in San Francisco this week, Samsung showcased Ability Wearables, Reemo, and Solo Protect services.

Ability Wearables’ real-time health intelligence system works with Samsung’s GearUP platform in help people like construction employees, healthcare workers, and truck drivers who can fall asleep on their work. This solution works with the Gear Fit 2 and the Gear S3, and helps in predicting and reacting to employee fatigue on the job.

Samsung is pushing the envelope with its range of wearables. By applying this collaborative solution to employees at high-risk of fatigue, we believe we can help solve many of the fatigue-driven challenges facing today’s workers,” said Ability’s CEO Shiv Madan in a statement.

Reemo works with the Gear S3 and S2 to monitor the health factors of seniors in care facilities such as activity levels, heart rate, and sleep quality. This helps caregivers in offering better and customized care to people. Solo Protect is a 24 x 7 communications and monitoring service that provides emergency alerts, geo-location, and status of employees who work in high-risk environments.

Samsung is also developing exercize programs that work with its virtual reality headsets like the Gear VR, offering a virtual world even while consumers are using a stationary bike. VirZoom VR Fitness app from Life Fitness offers virtual cycling experience as well as virtual reality games.
