An overview of Medical Skin Patch & Core body Temperature


This short note describes a successful OEM integration of CALERA® technology sensor into Recon Health’ Medical Skin Patch Virtual Care Patch™ for remote patient monitoring and diagnostics.


What is a Medical Skin Patch ?


Definition

A Medical Skin Patch describes a patch that is used for physiological monitoring of an individual’s health such as heat rate, or core body temperature. Medical Skin Patches are versatile products that can be used in a broad range of applications detailed below.


Use Cases

Medical Skin Patches can be used for a broad range of applications:


Other side applications can be found in industrial textiles, bedsheets, carpets, furniture, automotive interiors. Medical Skin Patches can integrate various sensing technologies to measure physiological processes to perform notably remote patient monitoring. greenTEG’s Core Body Temperature Sensing technology can be easily integrated into a medical skin patch. Indeed, our sensor is compact and miniature and rely on a reliable and robust thermal sensing technology.

Why monitoring Core Body Temperature with a medical patch ?


Core Body Temperature is a vital parameter for monitoring an individual’s health status and refers to the body’s organs’ temperature. It fluctuates following physiological processes, such as physical activity, circadian and ovulation rhythm, or various illnesses and sleeping disorders. Other devices on the market try to estimate core body temperature via skin surface temperature. Due to the complexity of thermal regulation and the thermal influences from changing environmental conditions and physical activity, this estimate does not come close to CALERA® technology’s accuracy and reliability.

About greenTEG x Recon Health – Virtual Care Patch™


greenTEG collaborated with Recon Health – XCO on their Recon Health – Virtual Care Patch™. Through this partnership, the Virtual Care Patch™ will be the world’s first multi-sensor health patch to measure and assess core body temperature alongside other critical vitals signs from the surface of the arm or chest.

The full press release can be found here.

Accurately monitoring the core body temperature of patients is critical to identify health issues in patients at an early stage, monitor ill patients and inform care planning. Currently, other wearable devices in the market try to infer core body temperature via skin surface temperature measurements; however, due to the complexity of thermoregulation and environmental conditions, the estimates are inaccurate compared to what can be achieved through the integration of the CALERA® technology sensor in the Virtual Care Patch™ with its proprietary on-device Health System-on-Chip and Neural Processing Engine for Always-On Machine Learning.
