Over the course of nearly 10 years building Modjoul from the ground up, we’ve celebrated quite a few important milestones. Perhaps none bigger than the one we’re announcing today: The granting of patent protection for the Modjoul SmartBelt, our belt-based safety wearable device. Additional patents are pending for our proprietary technologies and solutions. This initial patent […]
Using our blend of ergonomics, technology, and data science, Modjoul has developed a new solution to a long-standing problem: the high number of injuries suffered by new employees. New workers are five times more likely to be injured on the job than more experienced employees. These injuries can be costly, hinder employee morale, and decrease business efficiency. […]
Much of what we do at Modjoul is blend ergonomics, tech and data analysis to create new, custom solutions to longstanding challenges. But while we have built a team around those three areas, our teams do not operate in silos because we believe the convergence of those disciplines holds the most promise for workplace safety breakthroughs.

A common complaint from our customers is about how to ensure their employees want to use the safety wearable. In the era of privacy concerns and automation, employees are often skeptical of new technologies and wearables simply become one more hassle for them to circumvent. Pushback from employees on any change in the work environment […]
There is nothing scarier this time of year than workplace injuries and fatalities. Over the past years, total workplace injuries and fatalities in the US have actually increased slightly. However, it is not all doom and gloom this Halloween, wearable technology may be able to offer a solution. IOT wearable safety solutions when deployed in […]
We are always asked the question of the story of what on earth got into our minds to start Modjoul and what was the story behind it. The funny thing is that it didn’t take much thought, just a good idea we were all in. Eric Martinez and I worked together at AIG. He in […]
