Wireless Smart Thermometer can Measure Body Temperature in Real-Time

The FDA approved wireless smart thermometer takes eight seconds to record body temperature after pressing a button.

U.S.-based smart technology company Kinsa has launched smart wireless thermometer named as QuickCare for use in adults and children in February 2018. The company had launched first FDA-approved smart thermometer in 2013. The new device is modeled on the original Kinsa thermometer that uploaded its readings to a smartphone via the headphone jack The Company is actively focused on developing innovative technologies.

The latest product offered by the company, QuickCare features illuminated, easy to read screen, and built-in memory for up to 50 readings. The device can be placed orally and under the arm or rectally to measure the temperature. It can be connect to an iOS or Android smartphone app via Bluetooth connectivity. User can set up profiles for different members of family. The QuickCare thermometer runs on a single CR 2032 3V battery.

The app offers personalized guidance based on the temperature readings. Furthermore, it also tracks temperature and medications at regular interval of time. Moreover, the company is expected to enter in delivering medications and other illness supplies straight to the door. “Partly, this is our response to the fact that the headphone jack is gone,” said Inder Singh, CEO, Kinsa. “The first version of our stick was corded and connected to the headphone jack, so our answer to that is a wireless Bluetooth low energy product,” he added.

Although this was a cheap and easy solution that let the company keep the price of the device very low, Apple choosing to get rid of the headphone jack on latest iPhones forced Kinsa to include Bluetooth connectivity in latest compact thermometer. Furthermore, the device can be used stand-alone, as it has its own display. Automatic transfer of readings to a phone allows for close tracking of temperature of a child or adult.
