Wristbands used for awareness in times of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
As we face the imminent spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), are you doing everything you can, to assist in changing your student’s, staff, families and friends behaviours and habits?
AAC recently participated in a study conducted by QUT and Queensland Health in exploring the overall effectiveness and the degree to which wristbands can change the wearer’s behaviours.
At some point in our lives, we have all been through the challenges of needing to change specific habits and behaviours. With the steps (social-distancing, don’t touch your face, cover your cough, wash your hands) we can take to minimise the spread of COVID-19 as recommended by the Australian government, it’s not a question of whether people are willing to take these measures, but more one of whether people can remember to do these things 100% of the time before slipping into old habits. Coronavirus COVID-19 Awareness Wristbands are the perfect reminder, as it is on the wearer’s wrist for the whole day/week/month and is keeping these steps in front of mind.
Case Study: In 2019, AAC participated in a Schoolies initiative study with UV-colour changing wristbands to raise awareness on UV exposure from the sun. Most participants (73.4%) found the UV indicator wristbands helpful in reminding them to reapply sunscreen. Almost half of the participants (48.9%) reported after using the UV indicator wristbands that their sunscreen use increased. These findings show that awareness wristbands/wearables have a large influence on changing behaviour.
With over 1200 confirmed cases in Australia, it is time for us all to act and help stop COVID-19 in its tracks. There has been a lot of negative reports in the news this week, and we’re all concerned about the impact that the situation is having on our organisations and community. People are worried that the virus can be transmitted through products received from China. Fortunately, as an Australian Manufacturing business, AAC can produce large volumes of awareness wristbands in-house with no issues fulfilling orders. 100% of our onsite manufactured and printed products are dispatched from our Gold Coast production facility within 2 – 4 business days.
AAC is a manufacturing business located on the Gold Coast, and as a result of the recent limitations imposed by the Australian Government on the events and leisure industry, we are faced with some extremely difficult times ahead. To try and keep food on the table for many of the families we employ, we have temporarily shifted our focus from the events industry to help organisations with different ways that we can slow down the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and minimise its ongoing impacts. AAC really need’s your help in slowing down the spread of COVID-19. Even small orders of our wristbands put to good use can help make a huge difference.
