The power behind the patch

Patch-only Patch-only

It’s not just a band-aid!
Our patch was developed by biomedical engineers and is made in Austria. It contains a very precise temperature sensor which continuously measures body temperature in the axillary (armpit) area. Recorded data can be accessed using NFC.

The power of continous temperature measurement

Body temperature is a vital sign and temperature measurement one of the first methods of diagnosing an illness. Continuous temperature measurement differs to single individual measurements because continuous temperature measurement tells the full story. If a single, momentary measurement is a picture of a patient’s health then continuous measurement is a film.

The brains behind the patch

Werner Koele, M.Sc.Eng, MBA (born 1975) studied biomedical engineering, gained experience working in major companies including a leading global semiconductor group, was involved in the development of NFC technology and spent several years in Silicon Valley. There he dealt extensively with start-ups and, once back in Austria, founded his own in 2016. SteadySense has since developed, produced, and marketed two innovative sensor solutions: femSense and STEADYTEMP®.

The sensor patch

STEADYTEMP® is based on a temperature-sensitive sensor embedded in an adhesive patch. The high-tech patch is worn on the side of the chest under the arm, where it continuously measures and records body temperature at predefined time intervals - all by itself. Continuous temperature monitoring instead of inaccurate, momentary measurements! The one patch per person use, also reduces the risk of infection. The patch is flexible, skin-friendly and medically certified.

NFC - Near Field Communication

NFC is a fast, low-radiation, technology for contactless data transmission. The temperature data recorded with the sensor patch can be read out at any time with NFC-compatible handheld devices or smartphones. NFC is well-known worldwide through contactless payment and electronic passports. Because of the short reading distances, it is not possible for third parties to access data without permission.

The Software

The bio-medical engineering company behind STEADYTEMP® combines the field of electronic hardware and software with the digital world. From device drivers to visualization, from electronics to the cloud – every step is done in-house. Our development team designs and works cross platform, covers iOS and Android, and ensures that STEADYTEMP® conforms to medical standards. The QMS of our company is certified according to ISO 13485. STEADYTEMP® is a medical device approved by a notified body and fulfils the requirements of the MDD.

Clinical Evaluation Study

In a clinical study completed by SteadySense and the MedUni Graz the SteadyTemp patch was found to be just as accurate as urinary catheter thermometers and axillary contact thermometers in an ICU setting. You can read the results of the study here.
