greenTEG is a leading provider of core body temperature monitoring solutions for wearable and med-tech applications.
The company manufactures and supplies thermal energy transfer sensors for healthcare solutions.
greenTEG’s unique gSKIN® sensor solution suite is the world’s first core body temperature sensing solution for continuous and non-invasive measurements. The sensor is ideal for the integration into wearable and med-tech devices with non-invasive skin contact.
Core body temperature monitoring solutions
The company offers a ready-to-use wearable (available for white labelling) as well as the support to integrate its gSKIN® XU sensor plus algorithm into any wearable product.
Customers interested in incorporating core body temperature monitoring into their devices can use greenTEG’s gSKIN® XU integration package. The package follows a standard process to integrate the gSKIN® XU sensor into various wearable devices. The package includes all necessary tools, as well as the unique machine learning-based algorithm. By using the XU integration package, a customer has full cost-control and a fast and efficient way to build their customised minimum viable product (MVP).
For standalone solutions, greenTEG offers its non-invasive monitoring product (CORE), which is also available for white labelling opportunities.
The company welcomes any inquires or questions regarding CORE white labelling or integration of the gSKIN® XU sensor into devices.

With the company’s thermal sensing expertise and machine learning algorithm, a solution was created to compensate for the thermal influences from the external environment. This designed solution involves the use of two sensors, a thermal energy transfer sensor in combination with a precision skin temperature sensor.
The approach mentioned above results in a real core body temperature signal. This signal has been tested through various case studies to ensure the designed solution successfully supports real-world applications. Currently, many applications benefit from greenTEG’ core body temperature monitoring solutions, some of which include patient monitoring, enhanced sports and performance, and presently exploring possible solutions for early detection of potential thermoregulatory illnesses.
- Continuous monitoring of a patients’ core body temperature has multiple benefits over the single measurements performed by traditional skin temperature based solutions. With CORE’s accurate results, caretakers can be alarmed directly regarding changes in the core body temperature of their patients. These changes are key and could indicate health-related problems before other symptoms are detected.
Early detection of health-related issues
- Many significant health issues leave traces in a person’s natural day-night temperature cycle, also known as the circadian cycle. The most manageable way to monitor the circadian cycle is through measuring core body temperature. With greenTEG’s sensor, core body temperature can be measured easily without having an impact on an individual’s daily routine (non-invasive). Changes in the circadian cycle observed via core body temperature may potentially help with health issues such as jetlag, narcolepsy, insomnia, sleep quality, burnout, ovulation status, and more. With CORE, we finally have a non-invasive solution that can significantly contribute to clinical studies involved in finding a correlation between core body temperature and degenerative diseases and illnesses.
Enhanced sports performance
- Sports athletes want to perform at the right level at the right time. Athletes observe many of their vital signs throughout their activity. Among those signs is core body temperature, which provides the athletes with crucial information regarding their performance. Like heart rate and power output, core body temperature is a vital metric. For example, bike riders benefit form temperature monitoring since they train to raise their temperature threshold. While racing, live core body metrics help riders’ to pace and proactively cool, as well as enable riders and teams to plan strategic activities. It also protects the athletes by warning them if they’re about to experience a heatstroke.
Founded in 2009 as a spin-off of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). greenTEG develops, manufactures, and markets thermal sensors and provides consulting on the thermal integration of its products.
Today, greenTEG supplies original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and corporate/university labs around the world with its unique products. The greenTEG team consists of 30 specialists in various engineering disciplines, with all sensors fully developed and manufactured in Zurich, Switzerland.
