TempTraq: A Disposable Bluetooth Thermometer Patch

by Fox Van Allen on May 20, 2015

TempTraq Bluetooth thermometerTempTraq first caught our eye here at Techlicious during CES 2015. We knew parents would love the device: It’s a Bluetooth thermometer patch that fits under baby’s arm, providing 24-hour continuous temperature monitoring in case of illness. Now, after months of waiting, parent TempTraq is announcing that its disposable patches have passed premarket FDA review and are finally available for purchase by the public.

“TempTraq allows parents to keep a close watch on their child’s temperature without having to continually disturb them, while also gathering crucial data every 10 seconds for up to 24 hours,” explains John Gannon, president and CEO of TempTraq parent company Blue Spark Technologies. “According to our trusted physician advisors, temperature is the most important vital sign. The more data health care professionals have, the better their ability to see trends in the temperature readings and help a child get better.”

The thermometer patch is soft, flexible and waterproof. It provides constant temperature monitoring, sending data via Bluetooth to a nearby smartphone up to 40 feet away. The accompanying TempTraq app (available on both Android or iOS) helps you visualize the data in charts, keep track of your care efforts and sends fever alerts during temperature spikes. It can even be set up to track multiple children, great for when everyone in the family comes down with a bug at the same time.

Unfortunately, the TempTraq thermometer is a bit pricey, considering the fact that each one is disposable and good for just 24 hours of use. TempTraq retails for $24.99 per patch, though the company is offering a 10% off discount and free ground shipping if you buy three or more (for a limited time). You can learn more about the device by watching the short promotional video below or by visiting the TempTraq website.
