Vitalate is a wearable ear canal thermometer (measuring the amount of infrared radiation emitted from the eardrum), a new sensor device. Core body temperature is the temperature of important deep organs, such as the brain and heart, and has a significant effect on the functioning of the body. The eardrum temperature reflects the core body temperature (brain temperature) and is easily accessible from the body surface.
Eardrum temperature is constantly monitored by measuring the amount of infrared light emitted from the Vitarate sensor. At the same time, the heart rate is measured, and the eardrum temperature and heart rate are analyzed and monitored by the Vitiate App. This is a device developed by physiology research that can be used for an algorithm to quickly detect heat stress of human beings.
