The Equivital LifeMonitor measures temperature using a medical grade infra-red thermometer under the left arm. The infra temperature is measured continuously every 15 seconds and this data is stored on the device or transmitted in real time for viewing and analysis. The data can be downloaded for further analysis.
The LifeMonitor temperature monitoring capability also includes an ingestible core temperature capsule that can measure core temperature during transit through the gut. This data can be stored time stamped alongside the rest of the LifeMonitor data and used in real time or for later analysis.
The temperature measurement capability from the eq02+ LifeMonitor can be used for clinical studies, sleep monitoring, exercise physiology and heat stress monitoring applications.
