If you are like most people I know, when you feel sick, you don’t take time out of your schedule to go to the doctor unless it’s serious. Most of us just keep right on working through the sickness. It’s probably not the best way to stay healthy and live our lives, but at the same time, a doctor’s visit isn’t necessary each time we get a cough. Now there is a simple solution for times when you’d like to be sure it’s not serious. It’s like an iPhone doctor.
It’s called a Kinsa Smart Thermometer, and like the name implies, it will take your temperature. It does a lot more than that though. Kinsa is an iPhone app and add-on that plugs into your headphone jack. It’s great for people who have children too. It also displays on the screen what to watch for if the patient’s symptoms change. If you take a turn for the worst, it can even call your doctor for you.
It really is like carrying around an iPhone doctor in your hand, and it’s perfect for days when you aren’t quite sick enough to actually go to the doctor. Another useful thing the app does is it provides a “health map.” This means you can click your location and learn if there are any sicknesses rampant in your area.
Right now, this little iPhone doctor is making its way through all the approval processes required. It will most likely be available before the end of the year. They are also trying to raise funding to complete even more advanced features for Kinsa. You can learn more about that by visiting their indigogo page. This device could become very popular, especially for busy entrepreneurs or people who travel a lot.
