ROME. From a Lazio startup a hi-tech patch that monitors body temperature and which “could also be of support for patients with Covid-19”.

The monitoring system is able to check the temperature at intervals chosen by the operator (every 30 seconds, 1 minute, 15 minutes, and so on) and transmit the data to a mobile app. The increase in body temperature is the first parameter that indicates that the body is preparing to fight infections by producing antibodies, doctors from all over the world draw conclusions and make their first hypotheses about the disease based on reading this value.
