ThermoSpot Stick-On Reusable Newborn Thermoindicators (25 per tin)

The ThermoSpot is a non-invasive hypothermia indicator for infants. Reusable and extremely cost-effective, these little devices turn color when an infant is too warm or too cold allowing temperature assessment by non-literate and non-numerate family members and health workers.

  • Sticks directly onto the skin
  • Can remain on for 7-10 days
  • Can signal fever or hypothermia by change in color

THE PROBLEM

In low-resource settings in low- and middle-income countries, hypothermia in infants is one of the most important risk factors for morbidity and mortality among newborns. Compared to children and adults, newborn babies are less able to regulate their body temperature and in the first hours of life can have significant heat loss. Specific newborn care practices that are more common in home births in developing countries, but that can also occur in facilities, can make heat loss worse and put newborns at risk. Interventions to prevent and manage infant hypothermia can help reduce neonatal morbidity and mortality by 18%-42%.

THE SOLUTION

The ThermoSpot is a non-invasive infant hypothermia indicator. The ultra simple, low-cost device adheres to the skin of and indicates infant hypothermia or a fever by a change of color.  

A single 12 mm flexible plastic disc that sticks directly onto the skin, it can remain on for as long as 7-10 days. The infant hypothermia indicator is for use in a facility by a clinician, by a community health worker or by a parent. The device changes color when the baby's core body temperature changes, allowing it to be understood even by a non-literate parent. When the disc turns black in color, the child has severe hypothermia, when bright green the core temperature is normal and when blue the temperature is above normal. Note that the device has been tested in Malawi, Kenya, Nepal, and India.

The Thermospot infant hypothermia indicator is simple and comes in a strip of 5. Five strips of 5 are in each pack (25 small discs in each tin for $14.20 per tin). Each thermometer is re-usable once it is washed with soapy water making it extremely cost-effective. This slide-out tin package keeps the thermometer protected from sunlight and comes with very detailed instructions.

MOQ is 60 tins for $852. Per tin price is $14.2 US.
