TempTraq® Bluetooth® Temperature Monitor Deemed “CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree” in Two Categories

Wearable Temperature Monitor in the Form of a Soft, Comfortable Patch Continuously Monitors Body Temperature for 24 Hours, Sends Temperature Alerts to Mobile Devices

 

CLEVELAND (January 2016) – TempTraq®, the first-ever wearable intelligent Bluetooth® temperature monitor in the form of a soft, comfortable patch to continuously monitor body temperature for 24 hours, has been named a “CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree” in two categories: Fitness, Sports and Biotech; and Wearable Technologies.

Powered by Blue Spark Technologies’ patented, printed flexible battery, TempTraq is truly a new frontier in temperature monitoring. It works in conjunction with the free specially designed TempTraq app to bring users to a new level of health care for children of all ages – and even adults.

With this connected wearable patch and app, caretakers can receive temperature data every 10 seconds for 24 hours through their iOS or Android device and can even be alerted when temperatures hit the user-set “red zone” level. For those looking to share this information with health care professionals, users can easily send temperature data via email.

“We are thrilled to be honored in not one, but two, highly sought award categories,” said John Gannon, CEO of Blue Spark Technologies, maker of TempTraq. “TempTraq fits perfectly into both categories as we’re providing a high-tech, wearable device that monitors a person’s health and wellbeing through one of our most basic vital signs, temperature.”

Each of the 27 product categories was judged by a three-member panel, which included an independent industrial designer, an independent engineer and a member of the trade press. Products were rated based on engineering qualities, aesthetic and design qualities, the product’s intended use, function and user value, novel product features and benefits, as well as innovation of the product in the marketplace.
