Abstract

Wearable Computing brings up novel methods and appliances to solve various problems in society’s routine tasks. Also, it brings the possibility of enhancing human abilities and perception throughout the execution of specialist activities. Finally, the flexibility and modularity of wearable devices allow the idealization of multiple appliances. In 2020, the world faced a global threat from the COVID-19 pandemic. Healthcare professionals are directly exposed to contamination and therefore require attention. In this work, we propose a novel wearable appliance to aid healthcare professionals working on the frontline of pandemic control. This new approach aids the professional in daily tasks and monitors his health for early signs of contamination. Our results display the system feasibility and constraints using a prototype and indicate initial restrictions for this appliance. This proposal also works as a benchmark for the aid in health monitoring in general hazardous situations.
