Real-Time Non-Invasive Core Body Temperature Monitoring
In 2001, Minnesota Vikings player Korey Stringer collapsed on the field during pre-season practice and was rushed to the hospital. Korey had a core temperature of 109 °F and later died as a result of heat stroke.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), heat illness is the leading cause of preventable death in sports. Every year, 10,000 high school athletes suffer from heat exhaustion, several of which die from heat stroke.
Almost all experts agree that core body temperature is the single most important metric in detecting heat illness. However, the only reliable way to make such measurements is with uncomfortable and invasive probes.
AccuTemp can make a difference with its wearable, real-time, and precise core temperature measurement ability. AccuTemp technology alerts coaches and athletic trainers when player core body temperature increases beyond pre-determined thresholds.
With AccuTemp - heat related illnesses can be detected before it's too late.
