There is an urgent need for temperature monitoring in many activities exposed to high and low ambient temperature. During training and responses to fires, for example, firefighters may be exposed to fatal disturbances of temperature due to fire and the heavy protective gear used. Many other activities and professions benefit from temperature monitoring for increased safety, including:

  • Agricultural/farm workers
  • Construction workers
  • Nuclear facilities and toxic waste workers
  • Forest rangers, police officers, bio-warfare units ("anthrax")
  • Steel and foundry industry workers
  • Refrigeration and low temperature workers

A significant improvement in outcomes can be achieved by providing a device for continuous temperature monitoring because temperature-related injury and death is a major problem.
