Supporting smart monitoring

[INQ. NO. 1710E09] ChoisTechnology has recently 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.
