Mon­i­tor body tem­per­a­tures to bat­tle malaria.

APC Australia - - Tech Brief -

Hun­dreds of thou­sands of chil­dren die each year from malaria, so any­thing that could alert ei­ther the suf­ferer or their doc­tors of changes to their tem­per­a­ture could give them price­less time to act. This wear­able is a bracelet de­signed to be worn by chil­dren up to the age of five and mon­i­tors body tem­per­a­ture and hu­mid­ity. If a dan­ger­ous tem­per­a­ture pat­tern is de­tected, it will glow and send an alert ad­vis­ing to seek med­i­cal at­ten­tion.
