Identiv’s uTrust SafeTemp body temperature measurement patch has been a major innovator in supporting the reopening of public venues and simplifying patient monitoring by government and healthcare workers.
The wearable patch is a near field communication (NFC)-enabled transponder that combines the simplicity of using NFC and the smart technology potential of the Internet of Things (IoT), making it simple for anyone to monitor personal temperature curves.
“With COVID-19 and other illnesses that can spread far too quickly before being diagnosed, more safety indicators adoptable by large public venues are critical. That’s where temperature readings come in,” said Steven Humphreys, Identiv
CEO. “Our goal with uTrust SafeTemp has been to support the safest possible reopening of these spaces — this award is an honor and testament to the company’s process.”
