PositiveID Corp. announced that in conjunction with RFID Solutions of Malaga, Spain it has completed the development of its RFID enabled temperature-sensing microchip. The RFID powered microchip is able to measure internal temperatures within the body and then communicate that temperature wirelessly to an external reader.
PositiveID plans to integrate the temperature-sensing with its Wireless Body platform to provide early warning at the onset of an illness.
The company expects its Wireless Body platform will continue to evolve with the addition of other bio-sensing capabilities, including glucose-sensing through its GlucoChip, which is currently under development.
The Wireless Body platform is an integrated, internal and external, smart health care communication system designed to enhance wellness and disease management, for diabetes and other chronic illnesses. It has the ability to deliver personalized medical solutions wirelessly and allow health care systems to communicate with each other and deliver solutions to patients seamlessly.
