NACDS Location – Booth 956
CLEVELAND—It’s been quite a while since the digital thermometer has had a makeover, so it’s no wonder parents nationwide are clamoring for TempTraq®, the only available single-use, wireless, wearable thermometer for kids in the form of a soft, comfortable patch.
When a child is sick and has a fever, the very last thing a parent wants to do is cause more pain or discomfort. TempTraq is the first thermometer to continuously monitor body temperature for 24 hours and send alerts to mobile devices through the specially designed, free TempTraq app.
Dr. Joseph Hahn, retired Cleveland Clinic chief of staff and vice chair of the Board of Governors, and current executive in residence at Cleveland Clinic Foundation Innovations, believes TempTraq is the “future of consumer and clinical e-health care.”
TempTraq is the brain-child of Blue Spark Technologies, Inc., the leader in developing thin, flexible, printed power solutions for printed electronic systems. The company serves many customers, including manufacturers, product designers and integrators across multiple industries such as RFID, RF-enabled sensors, pharmaceutical, medical and interactive packaging. Blue Spark’s printed battery technology is the key enabler to developing a very thin, flexible design.
Without its patented battery solution, the product would not have one of its most defining characteristics: a comfortable, patch-like design, perfect for squirmy kids who don’t like to have their temperature taken.
In fact, market research indicates that TempTraq addresses two enduring pain points for parents: physical pain of children that would rather rest than be continuously checked; and emotional pain of parents who are worried and want to give the best care possible to their children.
Retailers will appreciate the slim and informative packaging, designed to tell the story at retail. It features a clean, simple aesthetic and showcases an infant prominently wearing the product, sleeping peacefully while an app displays his temperature history. This captivating visual helps to quickly tell the TempTraq story and pull in caring parents who are looking for a better, more convenient way to monitor their sick child’s temperature.
TempTraq delivers on-the-spot temperature readings in just seconds. The wearable thermometer alleviates many concerns of those caring for an ill or recovering child, including eliminating the need to continually disturb or wake a sick child to take his or her temperature. Now available for sale, TempTraq is truly the only way for parents to monitor their child’s health and recovery. TempTraq includes a free downloadable Apple® or Android™ compatible app, allowing users to reach a new level of health care for children of all ages.
All parents have to do is press the “start” button to activate the thermometer and connect it to the app via the unique code provided. Then, apply the thin, flexible patch thermometer to the underarm of the child, similar to an adhesive bandage. As long as the caregiver is within range of the thermometer, they can easily review data and receive alerts, up to 40 feet away.
Highly accurate, the TempTraq thermometer measures temperatures between 87.0 and
109.3°F. Unlike other devices that provide users with only one point of data and offer no continuous monitoring or alerts, the TempTraq app displays both real time and historical temperature data transmitted from the patch in graphical or tabular view, making it possible for caregivers to see fluctuations and quickly adapt treatment.
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. Caregivers can even receive alerts when a child’s temperature enters this designated red zone.
For parents who want to share temperature data with their doctors or family members, TempTraq allows users to send recorded information via email. Through the app, parents can also keep track of when their child eats, drinks or takes medicine. For those caring for multiple children, the TempTraq app conveniently allows them to monitor multiple thermometers simultaneously.
TempTraq is available now for $24.99 at www.temptraq.com.
