Hospitals Can Detect Fevers Earlier Thanks to a New Wearable Device

Hospitals Can Detect Fevers Earlier Thanks to a New Wearable Device


President and CEO of Blue Spark Technologies Shares Promising Clinical Outcomes, Results During the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM


Attend “Patient Centered IoT Solutions” Session 4 on November 14 from 1:10 to 1:35 p.m. or Visit the Company in Hall 16, Booth C20-6 to Learn More


CLEVELAND, OHIO, USA (November 2017) — John Gannon, President and CEO of Blue Spark Technologies, will be sharing a wealth of insight during MEDICA’s “Patient Centered IoT Solutions” session on November 14. His session, titled, “Connected Healthcare: Wireless, Continuous Temperature Monitoring that Provides Earlier Detection of Fever for Inpatient and Remote Outpatient Monitoring,” will address the benefits of continuously monitoring patient body temperatures for a variety of conditions and cases.


Most recently, Gannon’s company, which invented, patented and manufactured TempTraq®, the only wearable, Bluetooth® continuous temperature monitor, received promising clinical study results for its medical device. A University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center (UH) study shows the wearable can detect a rise in body temperature up to 180 minutes earlier, in a majority of patient cases, than the current standard-of-care (SOC) method, allowing medical professionals the chance to intervene more quickly.


“This temperature monitoring patch has the potential to improve clinical outcomes for patients undergoing stem cell transplant and intensive chemotherapy for hematological malignancies by identifying neutropenic fever and beginning clinical interventions sooner,” said Dr. Ehsan Malek, MD, UH Seidman Cancer Center. “We are looking forward to the next step in our research—implementing this temperature patch in the outpatient stem cell transplant setting.”


Unlike other devices and methods that provide physicians with only one point of data and offer no continuous monitoring or alerts, this patented device is the ideal, non-invasive, solution for doctors and nurses who need a continuous, smarter way to track, log and respond to fevers quickly.


“It has been very exciting for our project team, the bedside nursing staff, and our patients to see this device working in real time,” said Nina Dambrosio, MSN CNP, UH Seidman Cancer Center.


To study this continuous, real-time method of body temperature measurement, UH tested the feasibility of monitoring body temperature for patients specifically undergoing stem cell transplant or intensive chemotherapy for leukemia. The patches were applied every 24 hours on 10 neutropenic patients throughout their hospital stays. Body temperature was recorded remotely with TempTraq in 10-minute intervals totaling 14,342 temperature measurements, versus the current SOC of one measurement every four hours.


Though it wasn’t tested in this study, Blue Spark’s TempTraq Connect, a secure, HIPAA-compliant service supported by the Google Healthcare Cloud Platform, will allow the patches to integrate directly with hospital central monitoring systems and electronic health records (EHR) to safely and securely store patient health care data. Nurses can then view the temperature in their system as frequently as needed and can receive real-time audible or visual temperature change alerts at patient bedsides and/or through the central nursing station. Plus, no more waking patients to take their temperatures, and the hygienic, single-use, disposable design eliminates the hassle, time and cost of sterilizing the device between uses.


The TempTraq system is scalable and can support a single hospital or a multi-hospital/physician group healthcare system.


The company will also be exhibiting at MEDICA in Hall 16, Booth C20-6.

Company details

Blue Spark Technologies’ latest innovation TempTraq®, powered by Blue Spark Technologies’ patented, printed flexible battery, is the only wearable, Bluetooth® temperature monitor in the form of a soft, comfortable patch. TempTraq continuously, safely and comfortably monitors body temperature for up to 72 hours and sends alerts to Apple® or Android™ compatible mobile devices. This Bluetooth low energy-enabled temperature monitor outperforms current measuring devices that only offer one point of data and no continuous monitoring or alerts. Combine that with the accompanying free Apple or Android compatible TempTraq app, and users can now reach a new level of health care for children of all ages, and even adults.

Blue Spark continues to develop the clinical applications of TempTraq and is working closely with a number of premier hospitals on various implementations of the technology in the clinical setting through trials and pilot implementations. TempTraq is working directly with health care institutions to be used as the standard of care for temperature monitoring.  TempTraq Connect, a secure HIPAA-compliant service supported by Google Healthcare Cloud Platform, will allow direct integration with healthcare providers’ electronic health records (EHR) systems and central nurse’s stations.
