About

Butterfly - The First Ever 24/7 Remote Body Thermometer.

Measure the body temperature even from another room!

The key to successful medical treatment is determining an actual correct temperature and its development in time. The Butterfly is an innovative technology for 24/7 measuring body temperature in armpits. Thanks to the long time temperature curve of the Butterfly, it’s possible to acquire an exact image about the course of the temperature without contact with sick person.

The Butterfly displays the actual temperature measured with one or more sensors. It provides information about the actually measured temperature with numeric and light signals and includes the ability to set a sound signal to provide a warning if the temperature rises above the set temperature.

Temperature sensors

It includes a sensor that uses Bluetooth technology, as well as a revolutionary charging method. It simply sticks to the skin in the armpit and provides continuous temperature measurement. It’s resistant, waterproof, and secured against swallowing by kids.

Butterfly App

The Butterfly App for nonstop overview offers easy access to information about measured temperature anytime and anywhere. It includes the following:

  • iOS + Android support
  • A graph with the history of the measured temperature curve
  • The ability to set up the sound signal to warn if the temperature rises above a pre-set level
  • Information about time to take medicine to prevent fever 
  • Image of three differently colored backgrounds in the application, depending on set limits of each body temperature level 
  • Image of up to three parallel body temperature measurements from each sensor 

 Technical background

During technical development we used many kind of components, thermo sensors, chips and bluetooth transmitters. It was quit a hard challenge to pick best components who are reliable, can transmit fast, measure the temperature exactly and are smaller than a grain of rice. 

Biggest challenge was to find right components for sensor because all of them must be really small and at this stage whole sensor must be completed by human not by robot.

Watch the video and check how we tested and developed both parts of Butterfly - sensor and base. Most of the tests were carried out under real conditions. We skipped computer simulations because you cannot simulate the real feeling when you have sensor on your skin. First development platform you will see is base and 2nd one is sensor. Above the sensor platform in video you can see how small components we finally made.

This kind of temperature sensor we used in adhesive sensor to measure the temperature with accuracy to 0,1 degree Fahrenheit.

Wow, we love nanotechnology!

When all of you backers give us enough support all of the components can be more than 30% smaller than you can see on photos. It is because the sensor will be constructed by robots with perfect precision. Image that some of them will be as small as pinhead. 

Risks and challenges

We just finished the testing and design phase of product development. This phase took one and a half years, and we are happy that this phase is finally completed. Since both us have university degrees in technology, we were able to solve some of the challenges more quickly and efficiently.

Now, we have reached the phase where we must move the Butterfly forward, closer to all customers. As with any mass production, it is necessary to solve many logistical issues, which are linked to various problems and challenges and can affect delivery time. However, due to our experience, dedication, and enthusiasm, we believe that the solution to all logistical and technical problems will not affect the expedition of the Butterfly.

Thank you for your support. We really appreciate it.
