Smart Temporal Thermometer (Nokia Health)
Just when you think they couldn’t make anything else connected, Nokia releases a real game changer in a form of their Smart Temporal Thermometer that sends information about your body temperature directly to your smartphone via the Thermo app. Using their HotSpot Sensor Technology, the device measures your temperature without actually touching your skin.
The app not only tracks your temperature, but it also allows you to share other valuable information with your treating physician, including comments, personal notes, symptoms, treatments, and even medication. Furthermore, the app can monitor the body temperature of your family members as well. You only have to enter their age, gender, height, and weight, which helps with more accurate monitoring.
Pain can come in many forms, and we all know how unpleasant it is to live in pain. But when pain is still present after healing, it becomes chronic, and coping with it can affect every aspect of a person’s life. Controlling this condition has been the main subject of scientific studies for decades, and after a hard fought battle, researchers have come up with a drug-free alternative to painkillers.
PainPod is a wearable gadget powered by a combination of biomedical technology and microcurrents. The gadget obtains data about our peripheral nervous and body system in order to understand how our body works on managing pain, improving performance, and speeding up recovery.
The device is used for managing and controlling pain after surgery, instant pain caused by injuries, chronic/acute pain, or even headaches. PainPod stimulates tissue and muscle to regenerate faster after surgery, pregnancy, or workout activities. Whether you simply want to enjoy life without chronic pain, or you want to compete at your best fitness, just tap the device and it will work its magic to get you back in tip-top shape.
