Continuous body temperature monitoring of people with Ebola infection risk -- Device Prototype

People with Ebola infection risk have a catch period around 3-4 weeks so in that time the first alarm will be the body temperature. With our device and the correct protocols people on infection risk don't need to be completly isolated or in hospital because the continuous monitoring will give the alarm if fever raises with the geolocation of the place where the patient is.

We have the GPS / GPRS tracking device on textile, for the e-health cases would be done on disposable medical textile. The body temperature sensor is avalaible and we are working on the "translating" circuit board (tested on development board). Other e-health sensors could be added. We also work (collaborate) for the cloud platform.
