The Product

Social distancing is the new normal. Since practicing a 2-meter / 6-feet safe distance from your colleagues is counter intuitive to our normal social nature and teamwork requirements in the workplace, The Social Distancer™ attempts to facilitate this situation allowing staff to focus on the job at hand while still staying fully informed of their safe zone distance.

  • Zero System Integration Costs
  • No App Requirements
  • No Workplace Equipment Installations
  • Calculating Distance 10 Times per Second
  • Providing a Safe and Reliable "Nudge" for Social Distancing

Patent Pending Tech

Our patent pending technology leverages 3 alert delivery methods to notify the wearer and those around them using audio, vibration and LEDs. This ensures that alerts can be delivered in rugged and noisy work environments as well as play an essential role in corporate spaces.

The alert sequence is completely customizable for varying work environments, allowing you to optimize the device's use for your unique work setting.

The Social Distancer™ was created by leaders in technology, manufacturing and business who came together to protect and inform their employees on the need for accuracy with physical distancing in the workplace, in partnership with The National Research Council. The goal is to supply employers with a wearable device to keep employees six feet away from each other while keeping focused on their work. Its patent-pending technology calculates the distance between employees 10 times per second, providing a safe and reliable “nudge” for physical distancing.

Social Distancer Technologies Inc. was founded collaboratively by manufacturing executives Jarred Knecht, John Soares and Steve Zimmerman, who collectively possess almost 100 years of experience in mechanical and electronics technologies in their respective companies. With almost 1,000 employees between their companies to protect, The Social Distancer™ offers a credible physical distancing solution for employees from all industries, including aerospace, defense, automotive and industrial production.
