Blue Spark Technologies has unveiled its new TempTraq wearable Bluetooth thermometer at CES 2015, which pairs with a companion app to give live updates and alerts on body temperature. The company notes that the thermometer is great for parents who want to measure their child's temperature without disturbing rest, as data can be viewed and shared in real time.


The TempTraq contains a patented flexible battery and can measure temperatures between 86.0°F and 108.3°F, providing both real time and historical data in graphical or tabular view. Caregivers can receive real-time data from the thermometer from up to 40 feet away, and simply press a button on the thermometer while typing in a unique access code on the companion app to start using it.

Blue Spark also details how it simplifies the temperature reading process on the app with the thermometer:

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 level. Caregivers can even receive alerts when a child’s temperature enters this designated red zone.

Blue Spark's TempTraq wearable Bluetooth thermometer is pending FDA approval and will be available in the near future.

This should be in every hospital as a required piece of tech!
No more waking you at 3:30 am just to get temp readings.
If this will work for all ages I will definitely be buying it for my family.

Diapers

It would be good if someone could make a diaper with a built in bluetooth indicator for when it needs to be changed too, that would also alleviate another issue involved in disturbing a baby to see that the diaper didn't need to be changed.

Many diapers have indicator lines which turn blue when they're wet. You still have to see them, but it's a fairly decent system.

Also, there is a very reliable solution practiced by elite baby-watchers called sniffing. It uses advanced, scent-based technology and a readily available tool: your nose. It can detect a dirty diaper with virtually no disturbance to the baby, and in some cases, from as far away as 40 feet (better than blue tooth!).

At this time, it might be cost prohibitive. I was checking out their site, and it is a one time (24 hr. period) use and then throw away. It isn't rechargeable/reusable.



Looks very cool though.

If the child has fever for more than a couple of days in a row there is need for concern. If it comes with a pack of 5 to start at a reasonable price. A weeks worth of formula, diapers and wipes is enough to make you weep.
