ProGlove Smart Glove for Industry at CES 2019

ProGlove develops smart gloves that enable manufacturing and logistics staff to work faster, safer and easier. Process steps can be documented hands-free, giving instant feedback to the user. It is a game changer for improving worker efficiency and ergonomics.

ProGlove is the first smart glove designed specifically for industry with an integrated barcode scanner in an ergonomic wearable package. The ProGlove scanner is an ergonomic solution to scan hands free, creating faster, more efficient logistic and manufacturing processes. Each scanner attaches to the top of the glove while in use and detaches to recharge with 10+ hours of battery life.

Key Product Features:

Plug and Play: The ProGlove scanner can be set up using virtually any existing software/hardware infrastructure and requires minimal setup.

Worker Feedback: Worker Feedback assists the operator by providing visual, haptic, and acoustic feedback process steps directly on the device helping to eliminate operator error.

Ergonomic Design: Focused on the end user’s experience, ProGlove is an ergonomic and incredibly lightweight scanning solution that replaces traditional bulky, inefficient, and cumbersome barcode scanners.

ProGlove provides three different types of wearables designed for a variety of work environments including standard gloves for logistics and production, hand wraps where no protection is needed, and index finger support wraps for fine motor work in assembly and logistics areas.

ProGlove Scans from the Back of the Hand at Wearable Technology Show

Laser barcode scanners have revolutionised stock management and inventory processing in a wide range of industries and they’re ubiquitous at the supermarket checkout. Many of these scanners are handheld models that are constantly picked up and put down as needed, but ProGlove offers an alternative with the barcode scanner that’s fitted on the back of a glove. I chat with Aaron from ProGlove as the company brings to the scanner to the UK.

Even to someone who doesn’t work in this space, the benefits are obvious. A worker isn’t constantly picking up and putting down the scanner and the scanner comes with the worker without any thought; it doesn’t get left behind on a shelf. It’s ingenious and solves a couple of problems in one go. The scanner follows all the major standards and integrating the ProGlove scanner into an existing setup should be straightforward.

ProGlove have already worked with a number of big names – Audi, BMW, Skoda, John Deere, Bosch – so it looks like they’ve a good thing going here.
