Netanya, Israel -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/31/2015 -- Israeli inventor Simon Dotan is a parent. As such, he knows that taking the temperature of an infant or toddler is a bit of a challenge.
So Dotan developed a new type of child thermometer that is not only easy, painless and non-invasive – but can also be monitored on a Smartphone. It's called Temp-A-Sure and attaches to a child's diaper or pants.
"You can monitor your child's rising fever on a Smartphone screen while doing everyday activities like working on a computer, cooking or talking on a phone," says Dotan.
"Your baby won't even feel the Temp-A-Sure thermometer and you'll be aware of his or her temperature change no matter where you are, no matter what you're doing."
The Smartphone app can be preset to a specific temperature and send an alarm when that level has been exceeded. There's no need to be constantly checking a child's temperature.
"This new product is going to create a more peaceful and convenient environment for parents all over the world," Dotan says. It can even monitor the room temperature when it is not on a child. It's unique to Temp-A-Sure since it's not a sticking patch as all others.
LifeMedics, the company developing this device, has perfected the design and prototypes have been tested. The remaining steps are to fine-tune the cellular application and initiate a marketing campaign.
The budget to complete this project is estimated at $30,000. In order to generate this funding, Dotan has launched an Indiegogo campaign, which can be viewed at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/temp-a-sure
Donations of any amount are welcome. For $69, backers will receive a Temp-A-Sure thermometer, nearly 50 percent off the suggested retail price of $139. Shipping to the US or Canada is an additional $10. The shipping cost elsewhere is $20.
If you'd like to become a Temp-A-Sure distributor, 20 units can be purchased for $1,060. Please add $40 shipping for the US and Canada, and $80 elsewhere.
"This is a revolutionary new product that is going to make a big impact on parenting," says Dotan. "It will enable people to provide better health care to their children in a way that is easy and non-intrusive."
