The wearable cosinuss° C-Med ear sensor is the only mobile device that continuously delivers not only the core body temperature, but four of the five human vital signs. The measurements are cost-efficient and are performed with one single ear plug. In addition, they are easily available for home use.
The core body temperature is continuously recorded with an infrared ear thermometer. This method is more reliable than one-time measurements and thus leads to a significant expansion of the possible insights. By design the C-Med avoids application errors. Furthermore this type of temperature measurement is much more comfortable for the user.
With the use of a calibrated ear thermometer, even the smallest temperature fluctuations can be detected in real time. This is the only way to better understand the correlation between the core body temperature and individual health.
The in-depth analysis of the body temperature enables the possibility to base hypotheses on connections in biochemical and metabolic processes on data-evidence. These areas will benefit from the temperature research:
- Inflammatory diseases
- Effect of external factors
- Physical and mental performance
- Efficiency of drugs
- Long-term mortality
