ABSTRACT

Smart Thermometer Technology is intended for early detection and objective monitoring of more than 100 diseases (inflammatory, vascular and tumor) by measuring the temperature of the area of interest on human skin surface. The technology includes fast-operating infrared sensors that can be connected by wireless communication to mobile devices, available to a user (smart phones, tabs, etc.) with built-in specialized thermography software. It measures the temperature of any areas of human skin surface via infrared sensor point by point, generates thermogram and automatically gives comprehensive to an average person report about the state of the examined area and dynamics of the pathological process after each monitoring session. Self-examination of one anatomical area takes no more than 1 minute. Smart Thermometer Technology allows us to increase the accuracy of monitoring of a disease, and in most cases without participation of a doctor, simplify and cheapen obtaining of information on the course of a pathologic process and obtaining of the conclusion on the effectiveness of treatment.
