Abstract

Labor management based on global positioning systems (GPS) has become popular. To investigate the stress caused by GPSlabor management system, we studied its physical and psychophysiological impacts in nursing home workers. Despite that the use of GPS-labor management did not change physical activity it caused a reduction in heart rate and increases in parasympathetic indices of heart rate variability, which may be consistent with sustained alert response.
