27 Apr “A temperature monitor for babies gives new parents peace of mind”
Nidhi Subbaraman –
“For parents of newborns, a fever in the middle of the night is a cause for worry.
But now they have a way to calm their nerves as they wait for the doctor to call: A new wearable temperature monitor that tracks their baby’s fever and supplies a library of information from Boston Children’s Hospital about fevers in infants.
The “iThermonitor,” made by Beijing company Raiing Medical, is a wearable thermometer that syncs with a smartphone app. Earlier this year, the company licensed a database from Thermia, an online resource developed by Boston Children’s hospital that supplies parents with information about fevers, symptoms, and appropriate dosages of fever medication.”
