Our CorTemp® Data Recorder wirelessly picks up the signal from the CorTemp sensor and converts the signal in digital format. It displays temperature in real time and stores data for download and later analysis.
The data recorder detects the signal from the CorTemp® sensor, then displays and stores the data in memory. The unit can be preprogrammed manually or via the CorTrack® II Software. A clinician can easily transfer the recorded data directly to a PC platform where the data can be imported into Excel® or into a similar spreadsheet program for analysis.
The data recorder will monitor up to 99 different CorTemp® sensors and can be either worn by a subject for continuous monitoring or can be used to take random, manual readings of multiple subjects in a field or laboratory setting.
Our CorTrack® II Data-Graphing Software, for real-time view and data capture, interfaces between our data recorder and a PC.
Our CorTemp® Ingestible Core Body Temperature Sensor wirelessly transmits core body temperature as it travels through the digestive tract. The sensor’s signal passes harmlessly through the body to the CorTemp Data Recorder worn on the outside of the body. 262 kHz or 300 kHz.
How the CorTemp Sensor Works
The silicone-coated sensor contains a micro battery, quartz crystal, communication coil, and circuit board, all encapsulated in medical grade epoxy. Once ingested, the crystal sensor vibrates at a frequency relative to the body’s internal temperature, produces a magnetic flux, and transmits a low-frequency signal harmlessly through the body.
The sensor passes through the body at the subject’s normal rate of motility which can vary anywhere from 24-36 hours.
Monitoring can be extended by administering another sensor after the initial pill has passed. The CorTemp sensor is accurate to ± 0.1°C and is FDA cleared and registered as a single-use device.
