The process of temperature measurement in the area of knee joint.

Medical thermometer is present in every household. From the moment of its invention by Galileo Galilei in 1597, it did not change much. Electronic thermometer is safe and easy to use, but, in principle, it does not differ from mercury or alcohol thermometer.

The group of scientists from R&D department of JSC “CEM-Technology”, Nizhniy Novgorod (Russia) developed the device with infrared sensor, which receives thermal radiation from the person’s body with consequent automatic analysis of temperature data through computer program. The user of such “Smart Thermometer” uses his/her own gadget, for example smartphone or alike, and installed on it a special program. The user measures temperature on the area of interest, for example, on the knee, and sends the temperature data to the gadget.

Thermal field or color thermogram is imposed on the photo of user’s problem area of the body and clearly shows the zones of normal and abnormal temperature. Smart Thermometer automatically compares thermograms that were received in previous sessions and displays a message to the user about the change of the condition. Taking temperature measurements and receiving automatic conclusion takes no more than one minute.

The authors published the received and analyzed results in Modern Instrumentation (MI), Vol.3 No.1 2014, pp.1-7.

Nowadays, only two diseases are successfully monitored at home. Hypertension is monitored with blood pressure monitor (tonometer) and diabetes is monitored with glucometer. These devices radically improved quality of life of people with hypertension and diabetes. Before invention of Smart Thermometer, more than 1.5 billion of people with diseases of joints, veins, inflammatory and other diseases did not have such device for monitoring of their diseases.

Smart Thermometer helps to objectively estimate the effectiveness of medication, treatment procedure, ointment or medicinal cosmetics. Smart Thermometer helps to receive maximal results from therapy of a disease by choosing the most appropriate medication and exact dosage for each individual.
