BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Prima-Temp, the company that has patented wireless, continuous temperature monitoring to address a variety of physiological needs, will unveil their ground-breaking fertility awareness sensor at the upcoming International Consumer Electronics Show (CES)®, January 6 – 9, 2015 in Las Vegas, NV (Eureka Park, Sands Expo, booth # 75015).
“Connectivity is the driving force in consumer technology,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, producer of the International CES. “As the Internet of Things (IoT) evolves, connected devices will impact every facet of our lives, particularly our health and wellness. Products like Prima-Temp’s are finding innovative ways to leverage the IoT and make our daily routines easier and more efficient.”
As the first U.S.-based company to offer an elegant sensor that continuously measures true core body temperature, Prima-Temp’s first product will be the most precise, accurate, effortless method for women to pinpoint their fertile window without having to actively engage in data collection. This self-inserted, wireless temperature sensor continuously and passively tracks a woman’s core body temperature, detecting the subtle changes that occur before ovulation, then sends an alert to her smartphone when she is most fertile.
Research suggests that couples trying-to-conceive are often encouraged to pursue invasive, expensive infertility treatments before more natural approaches are exhausted. Fertility awareness is essential for couples trying-to-conceive; understanding reproductive health and natural fertility signs can help couples avoid costly infertility treatments altogether.
Prima-Temp has raised over two million dollars in funding, established a world-class leadership and development team, received two issued patents and has garnered awards including the Venture+ Forum at the 2014 mHealth Summit.
CEA and FamilyTech have also invited Dr. Lauren Costantini, Prima-Temp’s CEO, to share insights on quantified self and modern fertility trends. Join her and others from the leadership team at:
- Eureka Park, Sands Expo, booth # 75015
- CES Conference Panel – “What’s New in Quantified Self” Monday, January 5 from 3:30-4:30 PM in the Las Vegas Convention Center, room N261

- Prima-Temp Press Conference – “The Fertility Sensor that Allows Women to Take Control of Their Fertility” Thursday, January 8 at 11 AM in Eureka Park, booth # 75015
“Our personal sensor combines rigorous science with cutting-edge technology to quantify the body’s most important physiologic parameter,” explained Dr. Lauren Costantini. “The unveiling of our flagship product at CES will allow women to take charge of their fertility with less effort and greater confidence.”
Prima-Temp brings new, innovative approaches to many of today’s healthcare challenges through the application of 21st century thermometry. Prima-Temp’s continuous temperature sensors and associated software allow the most precise method to measure true core body temperature, with the potential to address a multitude of applications including fertility, early disease detection, sleep disorders, drug therapy, weight control and exercise.
