iWEECARE has announced that its wearable thermometer Temp Pal has been adopted to combat Covid-19.

Temp Pal is currently being used to protect healthcare workers at Ireland's Cork University Hospital and Taiwan's Cheng Hsin General Hospital. It is also being used for self-quarantine management in the Chinese city of Nanjing to reduce workloads and close contacts with people at high risk.

The cloud-based continuous temperature monitoring system provides early warning of fevers. The device is intended to help lower the risk of infections by allowing people to self-isolate earlier, as well as prevent the overwhelming of health systems by reducing physical contact between caregivers and patients.
