New Device Helps Predict Influenza Outbreaks

Researchers at a Children's Hospital in the city of Boston have reportedly developed a wearable device that can predict seasonal flu outbreaks faster than current methods. According to the researchers, the device, which is called the Thermia online health educational tool, works as a standalone digital application or can receive a child's temperature directly through an iThermonitor, a FDA-approved, patch-like thermometer. In a statement, researchers go on to say that they tested the device in China where the iThermonitor's manufacturer is located.
