MyTemp is a sensor in the form of a small easy-to-swallow capsule that measures core body temperature.
The sensor enables continuous monitoring of an athlete’s temperature to the highest degree of accuracy. Thus, data that can be used for monitoring the safety and performance of the athlete can be collected.
Results are transferred real-time to a mobile application or can be monitored on a computer via blueTooth. The sensor has no powersource inside, which means it allows the capsule to be relatively small and a sustainable. MyTemp can be used in human- and animal applications.
Right now, we are improving the system, so that we can monitor temperature from distance. This will enable coaching of the athlete based on temperature and monitoring health and safety during sports events.
Researchers from the Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands are testing the reliability of the system and analyzing its data to obtain a better understanding of the influence of body temperature on an athlete’s performance.
