Patented Swiss sensor technology now delivers accurate core body temperature monitoring in a convenient and affordable format. With the Covid-19 pandemic, the development and production of the first CORE devices was fast-tracked. Since the beginning of this pandemic, greenTEG AG contributed a significant amount of its resources to fighting the virus. The result is the first highly accurate, continuous and non-invasive core body temperature monitoring device.
Since 7 October, CORE can also be marketed in the US as a clinical thermometer, called COREmedical. greenTEG has received a waiver status to sell its COREmedical under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), a policy which limits pre-market requirements for selected low-risk devices which were developed to aid the global battle against the Covid-19 virus. An important side note is that the COREmedical device is not intended to replace any primary temperature screening processes utilising FDA approved medical thermometers. However, COREmedical is an ideal supplement to routine medical grades temperature screenings, such as those conducted prior to admission, or dismissal from to any facility, building or regulated public areas.
With fever being one of the most occurring symptoms, found in up to 80% of the infected patients with Covid-19 (Michelen et al, 2020), monitoring core body temperature of healthcare workers as well as at-risk social groups and their direct families is essential. So far, core body temperature has been practically impossible to monitor in an affordable, continuous and non-invasive manner. But with this new solution, we can provide statistical and analytical real-time data to support healthcare workers in understanding the physiological symptom fever, which is often hard to grasp in the earlier stages. As a result, COREmedical can partially relieve the existing strain on the healthcare system and contribute in reducing the number of fatal cases.
The COREmedical thermometer device can be worn with medical-grade adhesive patches or fits onto any heart rate monitoring (HRM) strap or even attached to bras and allows to accurately monitor core body temperature (within 0.21°C / FAHRENHEIT?). As a wearable / reusable device, it connects via ANT+ and BLE with smartwatches (e.g. many Garmin models) or with smartphones (iOS/Android apps for free available) to record and display core body temperature metrics.
Availability of COREmedical
Already working together with research institutes, hospitals and work safety companies globally, greenTEG is now further expanding its distributor channels across the entire US territory. The COREmedical is available for pre-order from today and will be released with the full FDA-compliant labelling for US medical customers by October 16.
