Medtech developer Blue Spark Technologies said today it won CE Mark approval in the European Union for the TempTraq bluetooth wearable temperature monitor.
The TempTraq system is a disposable, wearable continuous temperature monitoring patch that wirelessly delivers temperature readings, the Cleveland-based company said. The system includes the ability to set alerts, which are sent to mobile devices, when patients reach user-set temperatures.
Blue Spark said it also provides the TempTraq Connect HIPAA-compliant service which allows the TempTraq system to be integrated directly into hospital central monitoring systems and electronic health records for storing patient data.
The system allows healthcare providers to view temperatures in their system as frequently as needed, or set alerts for certain temperatures, according to a press release.
