NFC Temperature Patch

Description

Wearable medical and fitness devices empower people to live healthier lives. The NFC Temperature Patch is a passively powered, body-worn thermometer that harvests RF energy from an active NFC field to acquire axillary temperature when worn under the arm.

The NFC Temperature Patch enables no-contact temperature readings to promote a truly sterile protocol for hospitals. By harvesting wireless energy the NFC Temperature Patch does not require a battery, and can be used for an entire hospital stay. This promotes a less invasive method for delivering a patient’s temperature—whether the patient is awake or asleep—and provides greater patient comfort with no cross contamination. The NFC Temperature Patch is a battery-less, low-cost monitoring design leading the way for the hospital of the future.
