Yet another example of how we can extend the use of smartphones that we probably already own, to help us document our health for sharing with our doctor/specialist:
"Through its accompanying app (both iOS and Android), the Tympani allows you to keep a record of temperatures, track symptoms or enter detailed notes into the health journal. You can also share your records securely with your physician or virtual doctor.":
Expected shipping date is this December and the company "says it also plans to develop a weight scale and blood pressure monitor run from the same app in the not too distant future."
It remains to be seen how accurate and repeatable this infrared ear thermometer that reads the temperature of the ear drum (or tympanic membrane) proves to be, though I would anticipate more reliable results than what can be achieved by much more expensive smart watches.
