CORE: A new generation of wearables to fight the COVID19 pandemic.
CORE is a new generation of wearables for sports and wellness, designed to accurately and continuously monitor the core body temperature. Up to now, wearable technologies were only able to monitor the skin surface temperature, a method prone to error and difficult to run continuously. CORE uses a new sensing technology that solves this problem: a tiny core body temperature sensor solution, ready to be embedded in wearables and developed by greenTEG, a Swiss company focusing on heat flux sensing technologies.
CORE’s new sensing technology is not only able to monitor the core body temperature accurately and continuously. It is also non-invasive and its accuracy could be compared to electronic pills, but without their inconveniences. It is designed as a small device attached to the chest with a patch or a belt, ready to use and with long battery life. The data is processed through a special purpose algorithm developed by the company and shown in an app in real-time.
Because of its unique features, several organizations and companies around the world are already exploring and using CORE as a solution to control the wellness status of workers and risk groups during the current pandemic outbreak. With its continuous core body temperature monitoring capabilities, CORE could be useful to protect critical workers, relieve overwhelmed healthcare facilities, and control population groups on risk. The data taken from large groups could be easily aggregated, allowing to gain greater insights and fight the COVID19 pandemic.
As the “new normal” unfolds globally, we believe that wearable technologies could be valuable to flatten the curve and help authorities tackle the outbreak. Holger Hendrichs, VP of Sales and Marketing at greenTEG, comments: “We got approached by companies and governments from all over the world during the last 8 weeks and were involved in the discussions around several very interesting use cases for our technology. We want to contribute with that new technology, and hopefully protect our companies, households, and individuals from the worst consequences of the current pandemic.”
