It is officially flu season, which means you are going to have to monitor the health of your children very closely. This year, there is a new wearable that will make monitoring your children's fever as easy as opening your smartphone.
TempTraq is a new wearable that records and transmits body temperature data continuously. It is a comfortable monitor that uses Bluetooth to convey information from the monitor to the system on the phone. You can download the app free of charge on Apple or Android devices. This is a great way to send information to a pediatrician or to take notes on when a certain medicine was given. It is also a great option to help monitor your child throughout the night - you won't have to wake him up, which can help him feel better faster.
The patch is soft enough so that it won't both your child or stick out. It fits securely to the underarm and can be used from 40 feet away. The ability to see fluctuations will allow you to make smart decisions about your child's health. It even has an easy to understand guide: 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. You can even get a push notification and alert if your patient goes into the red level.
The FDA has cleared the medical device and it is available in Target, CVS, Walgreens, Fry's, Kroger, Ralph's, Dillons, Meijer, and Hy-Vee.
