Smart Monitoring Thermometer[INQ. NO. 1708E05] ChoisTechnology has focused on developing Radio Frequency (RF) interface devices such as RF Presenter and RF PC remote controller.
ChoisTechnology first introduced the “X-Pointer,” a device that can be used to control PCs and to make presentations without any external hardware or assistance in 2002. X-Pointer has evolved into a brand or product that can represent wireless presentation tools, and also has grown to become the market leader in Korea.
ChoisTechnology released the XPM series, which includes the Magic Key function that allows the user to set and use the buttons as desired. X-pointer Mobile by smartphone was introduced in 2012, which was the first in the world.
In recent years, ChoisTechnology has entered the nextgeneration U-Healthcare field based on the wireless interface technology it has accumulated over the past 16 years, and has developed a wireless patient monitoring system that can monitor the patient’s condition in pulse oximeter (SpO2), and electrocardiogram monitor. The Thermosher, a smart thermometer that can be real-time monitored, was developed last year as part of the U-Healthcare technology development.
As the world’s first wireless presentation tools developer, ChoisTechnology has been marketing X-pointer, which is popular both at home and abroad. Based on its 16 yearexperience in wireless interface technology, it has developed a wide range of products to enter the U-healthcare field.
In 2016, ChoisTechnology launched the smart monitoring thermometer – Thermosher. The existing thermometers commonly adopted a principle that measures continuously through the head or forehead. However, the measurer and the subject had to wake up at night, which may cause inconvenience.
In order to alleviate this inconvenience, ChoisTechnology created the Thermosher that attaches a thermometer to the body and confirms body temperature information on a smartphone in real time. According to the medical device approval standard, the contact thermometer should pass ±0.1°C in terms of the temperature measurement error. Considering that the approval standard of non-contact thermometer, which is ±0.2°C, its product is performed more precisely than the non-contact thermometer. In addition, the non-contact thermometers may have different positions during the measured time, but one of the advantages is that the contact thermometer can constantly monitor temperature at the same location.
Currently, the contact and monitoring smart thermometers such as Thermosher are becoming increasingly popular on the global market. Temptraq is a representative example in the United States, and there are similar products available in the Chinese and European markets. Temptraq only operated once for 24 hours. On the other hand, Thermosher can be used semi-permanently by using the battery. And it designed to be attached to sensitive skin safely by using a small, slim silicon patch.
As mentioned earlier, the contact and monitoring smart thermometers are still unfamiliar among the general public, and are not yet exposed to the market. Thus, it is promoting its products via SNS, and online child-rearing communities. In addition, it launched an online store and participated in a maternity classroom. As a result, the sales trend in the domestic market has shown a steady increase.

In the case of overseas markets, it is not easy to export the medical devices to different countries due to the approval requirements for medical devices. ChoisTechnology received inquiries from various countries including Europe, Southeast Asia, and the United States, but the export process is unlikely until the authentication problem is solved. So, the maker is currently preparing for the CE medical and will be certified by the end of September this year.
The most notable market for medical devices is China. Due to the one-child policy that was introduced in China, the middle-class families pay attention to investment in their children. The sales trend of health and beauty related products is also growing steadily in China. However, since the standard of medical devices approval varies among different countries, they must obtain certification in order to export their products. Therefore, in order to enter China’s market, the maker must obtain the CFDA certification and that could possibly be a long time away.
The market for home U-healthcare combined with IoT technology is increasing. In combination with IoT technology, the maker is increasing the need for more convenient bio-information measuring devices in proportion to the need to constantly measure and manage an individual’s biometric information. Since then, the maker has advanced into the medical device market by adopting wireless interface technology that it has accumulated since 2001, and now the maker is developing products such as respiration monitoring device, wireless smart thermometer, wireless electrocardiogram monitor, wireless pulse oximeter (SpO2).
In addition, ChoisTechnology is striving for innovation and development. ChoisTechnology developed the Thermosafer as a disposable device that can be used in hospitals and clinics, without worrying about infections.
The maker has developed technology for medical devices that has been accumulated over the past number of years.
ChoisTechnology is also constantly seeking ways to integrate its specialized wireless interface technology and medical device development technology.
ChoisTechnology will develop a variety of medical devices that incorporate the nextgeneration wireless technology and IoT technology, and will lead the changing next-generation medical device market through the development of popularized products that can easily be accessed in medical institutions such as hospitals, clinics and even in people’s own homes. | Blog Magazine of korean electronics, brands and Goods
