Tan Tock Seng Hospital publishes findings on a wireless temperature monitoring device

Annals of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore; abstract (extract); October 2006:
 

In the era of epidemics, temperature monitoring is crucial in determining the rate of infection and evaluating treatment plan. This revolutionary new wireless temperature monitoring device, which is able to detect skin temperature continuously, will minimise contact with patients, and enable the analysis of trends in body temperature to aid the treatment regime of patients. Given its comparable accuracy to digital and infrared thermometers, it is worthwhile to consider exploring its usage.
