Continuous monitoring of core temperature
This innovative device, to be swallowed, allows a reliable and continuous measurement of gastro- intestinal temperature, without staff intervention.
e-Celsius® is a miniaturised electronic pill that communicates wirelessly accurate measurement of core temperature.
A dedicated monitor e-Viewer ® collects and stores data, and sends alarms if temperature is under or above customisable thresholds.
The pill, when provided, is in standby mode. An activation box enables wake-up and association with monitor for data collection in real time mode or by recovery from internal memory of e-Celsius ® with no loss of data.
A single monitor can be associated simultaneously with up to three pills, enabling extended uses. Thanks to a dedicated interface the user can download data into a PC/MAC for storage.

Various usages :
The variable of temperature is taken into account and measured for purposes of diagnostic since 1868. Techniques and tools did not stop evolving since this period so as to be always closer to the central temperature and improve the accuracy and the reliability of the measure.
The continuous character of the measure is more difficult to get and only some binding devices (rectal, oesophageal probes) allow a continuous follow-up of this parameter.
The product e-Celsius ® is a pill, that you simply swallow, that is perfectly safe for the body. The device goes out of the gastric system with an operational duration which depends on transit time.
The pill e-Celsius® allows to monitor continuously core temperature at Hospital after surgery or chemotherapy. That systems enables rapid and exhaustive detection of peaks of fever.
The pill e-Celsius® allows to schedule treatments accordingly to circadian cycles (chronotherapy).
