Safe Distancing Assistant

The Pathfindr Safe Distancing Assistant (SDA) was developed to ensure users kept away from other users while in enclosed spaces. We have sold almost 50,000 to companies throughout the UK and around the world.

Help staff and visitors stay safe

The SDA works like a virtual shield, giving staff and visitors an extra layer of protection and peace of mind. 

Social distancing becomes second nature as the SDA gives you a gentle reminder when wearers are too close. Staff are kept safer and businesses are less likely to close due to staff sickness.

Our light, discreet device emits a short audible or vibrating alert when another wearer comes closer than 2 metres (or your preferred distance). The solution is a small, simple device that will last for the working week before needing recharging.

Tens of thousands of units have been sold worldwide and are worn by people in all kinds of settings – everything from huge factories and construction sites to small offices.
