SteadySense Develops Smart Patches to Fight Infections

18 January 2022: Styrian medical technology start-up SteadySense has developed Smart patches that allow continuous and accurate body temperature measurement without having to disturb the user and this Smart Patches were introduced in recently held CES 2022 Expo at Las Vegas, USA.  

A flexible miniaturised electronic system featuring sensors and communication chips supplied by AT&S is used at the heart of the flexible patch. The know-how of the printed circuit board manufacturer in flexible electronics and medical technology is opening up new paths in capturing health data.

According to SteadySense the adhesive patch is applied below the arm and is activated via an app on the smartphone. Temperature measurements at five-minute intervals create a continuous curve which shows the body temperature over the measuring period. The data are saved by the patch and can be retrieved through the app at any time.

The process has many advantages over conventional temperature measurement methods. Recording the temperature continuously over time supplies significantly more information than capturing it selectively. Based on the long-term documentation, different base temperatures can be taken into account, and short-term fluctuations caused by external stimuli can easily be identified as outliers.
