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. MOQ is 500 pieces (20 tins) for $220.
The ThermoSpot is a single 12 mm flexible plastic disc that sticks directly onto the skin and 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 it is black 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.
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 $12.50). Each thermometer is actually 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.
"In under-resourced settings in low- and middle-income countries, infant hypothermia is one of the most important risk factors for morbidity and mortality in newborn infants of all birth weights and gestational ages."
"Prevention and management of infant hypothermia is one of the key interventions for reducing neonatal mortality and morbidity. According to UNICEF, such interventions can help reduce neonatal mortality or morbidity by 18%–42%"
If you are interested in larger volumes the price declines sharply. Please contact us for custom orders. In addition, we are developing a pack that includes surgical tape to reattach thermometers and alcohol wipes to clean the infant's skin.
