Munich based cosinuss° has recently turned to Kickstarter to raise funds for a smart in-ear thermometer for children. The device takes temperature continuously and warns parents if it gets too high or rises too fast. Because you can follow you child’s temperature in real-time, you can also follow the effects of your treatment.
“During a febrile seizure of my three year old daughter I experienced the feelings of helplessness on my own,” said Greta Kreuzer one of the founders.
“After that I wanted to create a fever management solution that is giving parents confidence and children a more effective recovery.”
degree° is wearable both day and night. This means you do not have to get up and also wake up the little patient to take the temperature. With just one glance on your smartphone you immediately know the exact temperature.
The smartphone app shows a timeline of readings, helping you to understand where the temperature is trending. You also get a fever guide with useful information and some ideas for treatment if needed.
