Fever Smart is a smart thermometer for kids

Want to take your child’s temperature but don’t want to wake them up? Fever Smart lets you do just that – just stick the patch to your child, and you can monitor them remotely on your phone.

Here’s how it works. Attach one of the disposable patches to your child’s underarm. It will measure your child’s temperature and beam the data to a smart device like an iPad, iPod Touch, or smartphone that’s in the same room. This then sends it to the cloud, so you can read the info wherever you are on your smart device.

Hey presto – no need to disturb your child’s sleep.

You can set parameters too, so when little Johnny’s temperature goes above a certain threshold you’ll get an alert.

The device itself is small and unobtrusive, weighing just 8.6g. It’ll last a long time too – 120 days with eight hours of use a day.

You can check up at any time of the day or night, as Fever Smart continuously monitors temperature and sends the data back. All you need to do is put the battery in and download the app.

It’s fully accredited, with FDA Certification (US Food and Drug Administration) and HIPAA (US Department of Health and Human Services) compliant data storage.

It’s already passed its funding goal on
, raising $46,483 of a $40,000 target. If you want one, pledge your support. The device costs $129 on Indiegogo, and will ship in January 2015.
