Scientific Rigor

The KENZEN solution, based on non-invasive, gold standard-validated methods, reliably and accurately measures core temperature on a continuous basis. Workers’ physiological responses are precisely measured in real-time, leveraging sophisticated algorithms that create the ideal blend of protection and usability.

Largest Data Set

The KENZEN data set, drawn from continuous temperature monitoring over 119 trials and 105,532 minutes of data, is both accurate and vast, covering a 24-hour range of inputs — from high exertion to normal daily activities. Our data was collected using gold standard methods, and we developed and validated our algorithms by comparing them to gold standard core body temperature collected in this dataset.

University Affiliations

The KENZEN work, based on years of collaboration with four highly reputable universities worldwide, has resulted in the superior scientific crafting of our product. The highest level of scholarly peer review research was conducted to perfect our algorithms, design our data set, and produce the final KENZEN device.

Expert Team

The KENZEN team, composed of top industry experts and heat scientists, exists to protect workers from heat injury. Our goal is to maximize our scientific rigor, data set, and academic collaborations to ensure the prevention of heat illness and injury to our workers worldwide.

Client Testimonial

 

“The KENZEN system has been a successful initiative for our team and how we approach heat illness risk onsite. The entire KENZEN team is resourceful and is helping us maximize management of the program. The data we’re gathering is a significant benefit for us to not only verify and confirm our current approach, but it also helps everyone understand what drives the additional mitigation measures we take in order to send everyone home safely at the end of each day.”

Peer-Reviewed Proof Points

“…The KENZEN TC algorithm is equally accurate for both biological sexes, for a range of cool to hot environmental conditions, and maintains accuracy at higher TC which predispose workers to heat injuries and illnesses”

 (Moyen, et al.).

“This is the first study we are aware of to show that an EKF model can be successfully implemented in a wearable device worn on the upper arm to non-invasively and accurately predict TC continuously throughout work or exercise”

 

(Moyen, et al.).
“We demonstrate that the Kenzen TC algorithm accurately predicts TC compared to ground truth measurements of TC via a gastrointestinal pill or rectal probe throughout a range of environmental conditions, exercise intensities, TC ranging from 37.0–40.2 °C, and for both biological sexes”

(Moyen, et al.).

“The KENZEN device can be used to accurately monitor TC during work in cool to hot environments so that individuals can avoid heat-related injuries and illnesses via personalized alerts when an individual’s TC reaches unsafe levels”

 

(Moyen, et al.).

WHY IT MATTERS

2 Billion

Hours of Labor

Climate change is expected to result in the annual loss of 2 billion labor hours, translating to$160 billion in lost wages due to extreme temperatures.

393%

Workplace Hospitalizations Due To Heat Injuries

As the planet warms up, heat injuries are also on the rise. For every 10 degree Fahrenheit increase in temperature, there is a 393% increase in hospitalizations for heat exposure.
