cosinuss° is a high-tech company based in Munich that is launching degree°, the first portable thermometer on the market that continuously and uninterruptedly measures and records body temperature.
Where does this idea come from?
One day, the three-year-old daughter of the two founders Greta and Johannes Kreuzer received a viral infection that led to a fever cramp. Although they measured the temperature hourly, they could not foresee the fever. Because the decisive factor for a fever cramp is a sudden and rapid rise in temperature – not a single measured value.
“This experience, but also the fact that about 30% of the children who have already had a fever cramp at least once again cramp, has moved us to think about it. After all, we run a company that concentrates on the mobile measurement of vital parameters.” – Greta Kreuzer
The graduate in business administration and the doctorate engineer in medical technology then invented a continuously measuring clinical thermometer with their cosinuss° development team, which was specially adapted for children and can be worn day and night.
“We already had the right measuring technology in-house. The challenge was to adapt the fit to toddlers and make it so ergonomic that the toddlers could sleep with it”. – Johannes Kreuzer
The result is degree°, a small and portable thermometer that continuously measures the body temperature in the ear.
