Top 10 healthcare wearables to watch
The Fever Scout is a flexible patch that can track a user’s temperature over time and share it with clinicians or caregivers. The remote monitoring device can be placed near the user’s armpit, and smartphone alerts can let caregivers know if there’s a fever or spike in temperature. The continuous temperature monitoring device can be used for babies and young children, post-operative patients, cancer patients, and seniors.
Fever Scout syncs with a smartphone app when it’s within 25 feet to 30 feet of the phone. With a signal amplifier, the device can monitor a user’s temperature up to 130 feet away.
The device will be available to purchase in mid-February 2017.
