The results of the pilot study were published in March 2023 in the journal of BioMedical Engineering OnLine: Free-living core body temperature monitoring using a wrist-worn sensor after COVID-19 booster vaccination: a pilot study. (Scroll down for link) This breakthrough opens new possibilities for more effective and accessible health monitoring, particularly in situations where fever detection plays a crucial role in maintaining public health and safety. One example of how the algorithm shall be used to monitor patients, is the user-friendly CORSANO bracelet.
Tracking fever accurately using popular consumer smart-watches has long been a challenge due to the natural decrease in wrist temperature, which hinders the acquisition of reliable readings. However, greenteg has successfully tackled this issue by analysing heat flux data concerning temperature differences between the core and the wrist (thermal resistance).
This breakthrough algorithm was developed in close collaboration with the University Hospital of Basel, thanks to the invaluable assistance of Dr. Jens Eckstein and his team. Essential fever data induced by the second and third COVID-19 vaccination shots were collected. A new fever algorithm was developed through an in-depth analysis of heat flux data in correlation with temperature differences between the core body and the wrist (thermal resistance).
"We are thrilled to introduce this breakthrough in fever tracking, "said Dr. Lukas Durrer, co-founder and VP of CALERA integration at greenteg. "By integrating highly accurate heat flux sensors into wrist wearables and leveraging an innovative algorithm, we have overcome the challenges posed by the thermoregulatory-based wrist temperature decrease on fever. Our solution provides users with reliable and convenient fever monitoring, contributing to public health and safety."
