Tan Tock Seng Hospital uses automated wireless temperature monitoring to enhance patient care

Straits Times, news articles (extract), December 29, 2008:

Devices taped to patients relay the data, freeing nurses for other tasks

… The tiny, wireless device automatically took the 83-year-old’s temperature and beamed the readings to the laptops of the nurses who worked in her ward. The setup allowed the hospital to monitor Madam Lee’s body temperature — which can reveal serious problems such as an infection — without waking her up.
