An Innovative Piece of Wearable Tech That Monitors Your Temperature

Since the pandemic has begun, establishments, restaurants, and workspaces have evolved into finding new and innovative ways to keep ourselves safe, healthy, and informed. One way that our society has changed is by monitoring temperatures in order to keep environments safe. Although there are many new body-temperature screening measures now available, inventors are looking for new ways to help monitor our health more efficiently. The PouchPASS is a new wearable tech piece that comes with a mobile app to help regulate and monitor your body’s temperature. The PouchPASS features a clean and neat data dashboard that displays your temperature periodically, so you don’t need to. The device is placed on wrists and is adjustable for both kids, teens, and adults. The device is also waterproof, making it easy to wear all day long – even in the shower! Our Florida product design specialist loves how the purpose of the PouchPASS makes it easier to provide accurate temperature readings that help both monitor your own temperature and let others easily know your current temperature while out and entering a public indoor area.

From design to manufacturing your prototype, research the players involved

If you are hiring a professional design and development firm to create your product, do some research before selecting the firm. This also applies to the manufacturing stage of your product. You may need to work with multiple manufacturers for various parts of your product. Does the factory incorporate alternative sources of energy such as solar or wind into the manufacturing process? Are outputs and waste managed responsibly? Does it take steps to offset the CO2 produced during manufacturing?
