Blue Spark, a technology company that develops thin, flexible, printed power solutions, recently debuted TempTraq, a wireless thermometer that is worn as a patch in order to continuously monitor body temperature.
Pending FDA approval, the TempTraq can be worn for 24 hours and will collect real-time and previous temperature readings that can then be sent to a mobile device via a coordinating app. As long as the user is within a 40 foot range of the thermometer, the data can be reviewed and also shared via email to others such as another family member, caregiver or doctor.
While the product is suited for all, the company noted the benefit of the thermometer’s capabilities for parents caring for a sick child or children. The app can be used with multiple wearers.
“TempTraq allows parents to keep a close watch on their child’s temperature without having to continually disturb them,” said John Gannon, president and CEO, Blue Spark Technologies. “Our wireless, wearable thermometer gives parents peace of mind and their children the rest they need to get better.”
The TempTraq measures temperatures between 86 degrees Fahrenheit and 108.3 degrees Fahrenheit and displays them by using color-coded temperature levels: green, orange and red, in order to help the user monitor properly.
