For the last 8 years, we have been a homeschooling family. We have taken school on the road as we traveled, vacationed, and explored outdoors. That was until this past summer. We always said that if the kids wanted to go to public school, they could. Well this year, they decided they wanted to give it a try. Reluctantly, I kept my word, enjoyed them in school, and secretly hoped they hated it.
After a few weeks, they found their niche, made friends, and got into the groove of going to school. What I didn’t expect were the germs and colds that would soon follow. My youngest came down with a cold about 6 weeks into the school year. After that, it was a trickle effect and no one in the house was immune. For two weeks, someone in our house was sick. Cough, sneezing, and fever were unwelcome house guests. The only relief was acetaminophen, fluids, and plenty of rest.
It wasn’t until after the cold had run its course that I learned about TempTraq®, a wearable Bluetooth® temperature monitor that continuously monitors body temperature. When the children were resting, I hated having to wake them to take their temperature with a traditional thermometer. This temperature monitor would have made it easy to monitor all my sick little ones continuously while they were sick.
What is TempTraq®?
TempTraq® is a soft, comfortable, non-latex patch, similar to a bandage, that you is applied in the underarm area. It senses, records and transmits temperature data via Bluetooth® to the free TempTraq app on either an Apple® or Android™ compatible mobile device.
This Temperature Monitor continuously monitors body temperature for up to 24 hours. It will also send temperature alerts to give parents peace of mind and children the rest they need to get better.

If I need to, TempTraq® allows me to easily email temperature data to my healthcare provider or to other family members. The monitor allows me to monitor multiple people at once. So when we all get sick again, I have things covered. Plus I can track when my child eats, drinks or takes medicine.
