CORE helping with the COVID-19 pandemic
As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads throughout the world, many companies and projects have been severely disrupted, forced to quickly change their business focus. CORE is not an exception to that. However, that doesn’t mean negative consequences.
At CORE, we have decided to use our already proven technology to help flatten the curve. Obviously, this has changed our focus momentarily away from Sports applications to assisting the fight against this global pandemic. At our CORE we are highly motivated to assist to have a positive impact on society.
How are we doing that? It is quite simple: CORE continuously monitors Core Body Temperature in real-time and with great accuracy. Because of that, it can also detect and monitor fever, which is useful in the fight against COVID-19.
As of now, we will not be ready for an FDA and medCE approval process. Therefore, CORE will not be a medical device, but focus purely to support researchers, as well as find its use cases for work safety and wellbeing.
Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have received requests from all over the world include governments, where they have a real need for continuous monitoring, applied to the following use cases:
- Monitor critical at-risk workforce (e.g. nurses, doctors, police, public transport workers).
- Monitoring of patients on the general ward.
- Reduce the workload of nurses, and help with the triage for ICU.
- Monitoring representative demographic set of the population for early detection and localization of any pandemic wave.
- Monitoring quarantined persons.
We believe that all these goals are worth-pursuing and could make a big difference. Therefore, we have accelerated our production and doing all we can to get CORE to those that have a real need for remote continuous monitoring of Core Body Temperature. If we succeed, we will be doing our part to protect all those fighting the pandemic. And that is something we would be proud of!
