We created the first FDA-cleared app-enabled thermometer because, from our work in the health systems within the U.S. and across impoverished nations throughout the world, we’ve learned that an elevated temperature is often the first sign of sickness.
By building intelligence into a once basic thermometer and turning it into a connected device, we’re able to keep an eye on illnesses from beginning to end. We can more quickly alert users when fever and symptoms warrant closer monitoring or a visit to the doctor. Our network of connected thermometers can even offer helpful insights such as common illnesses that may be circulating in a local area or within a user’s school.
That is not an issue anymore thanks to our Kinsa Sesame Street Smart Ear Thermometer. One thing about it is that it takes the temperature so quickly, that I don't have to fight as I wait for the reading. But as most moms do, I had to figure out a way to work around his sensory issues, and here is how I did it. Now I just grab the thermometer and tell him that Elmo wants to tell him a secret. I put it in his ear, hit the button, and voila, we have an accurate temperature with no fighting, no crying and without having to hold him down! Now that is something I didn't think would ever happen. Now he even asks for Elmo to tell him a secret!
I love how it tracks the temperature, lets you assess based on other symptoms, and it gives smiley faces based on the readings1 This is a must have for any parent, but especially if you have a child with sensory issues like my son.
