CLEVELAND — Blue Spark Technologies last week at CES showcased TempTraq's new 48-hour body temperature monitor, doubling the run-time of its existing patch. To help parents care for sick children, especially through the night, the TempTraq wearable, Bluetooth temperature monitor continuously senses, records and sends body temperature for up to 48 hours to a mobile device through its free downloadable app.
TempTraq alleviates many concerns of those caring for a sick child, including eliminating the need to continually disturb or wake them when rest is critical to a speedy recovery. Plus, no more poking or prodding an already irritable child to get an accurate temperature reading. The wearable patch delivers on-the-spot temperature readings in just seconds and even sends alerts to mobile devices when the child reaches a pre-determined, user-set temperature level.
Unlike other devices that provide users with only one point of data and offer no continuous monitoring or alerts, the accompanying free downloadable TempTraq app allows users of all ages to reach a new level of health care. It displays both real-time and historical temperature data transmitted from the patch in graphical or tabular views, making it possible for caregivers to see fluctuations and quickly adapt treatment, if necessary.
TempTraq further simplifies the temperature reading process by providing easy-to-follow colors that indicate temperature levels: Green, less than 100.4°F; orange, equal to or greater than 100.4°F; red, equal to or above the user-set temperature alert level.
For those who want to share temperature data with their doctors or family members, TempTraq allows users to securely send temperature information via email. Through the app, users can also keep track of when the patient eats, drinks or takes medicine. For those caring for multiple people, the TempTraq app conveniently allows them to monitor multiple patches simultaneously.
TempTraq's existing 24-hour patch is available now for $19.99 online at Amazon.com, Target.com, and CVS.com and in stores at Walgreens, CVS, Target, Kroger, Fry's, Dillon's, Ralph's and Hy-Vee.
The new 48-hour patch will be available for purchase for $24.99 in Q1 2017.
