SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VivaLnk, Inc. announced today that it will be demonstrating a new innovation, eSkin™ Thermometer, that will transform the way you measure and monitor your body temperature at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics (CES) Show in Las Vegas. VivaLnk’s breakthrough eSkin™ technology enables complex electronic circuitry with embedded tiny sensors on a thin flexible material to adhere comfortably to your skin. Using an NFC chip solution from NXP Semiconductors, together with state-of-the-art temperature sensing technology, this electronic patch makes highly accurate temperature measurements without requiring a battery. “VivaLnk’s eSkin™ technology has placed NXP’s technology adoption into new and exciting applications,” emphasized Victor Vega, Director, NFC/RFID Solutions at NXP Semiconductors. Leveraging this extraordinary form factor, the engineering team at VivaLnk created an easy-to-use, function-rich smart thermometer for parents to measure and monitor fevers of young children.
The eSkin™ Thermometer patch works with a smartphone to provide a range of smart feature possibilities. The initial product release will include the ability to record and track fevers, simplifying the illness monitoring process. eSkin™ Thermometer is extremely easy to use and takes an accurate body temperature reading in less than three seconds. The smart functionalities of eSkin™ Thermometer meets the expectation of technology savvy adults, and the thermometer patch is designed to be attractive for young children. Since the patch looks and feels like a kids’ sticker, similar to a Band-Aid, it alleviates the fear and anxiety associated with taking their temperature.
VivaLnk is in the process of completing the initial product design. A limited amount of samples will be available for interested partners in January, 2015. Stay informed of the latest development of this and other VivaLnk innovations by subscribing to our newsletter at www.VivaLnk.com.
