Measuring body temperature through a novel adhesive patch and connected mobile app
What is Verily Patch?
Verily Patch is a sensor-based, adhesive patch that regularly measures an individual’s body temperature. Building on our rich history of medical device innovation with Study Watch and Liftware, Verily Patch was developed by our product teams, and designed to fit seamlessly into everyday life.
How does it work?
Verily Patch includes a temperature sensing device and an adhesive liner, which is used to gently secure the device below the armpit. The device uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to transmit data to the corresponding mobile app for easy tracking of a user’s latest temperature reading. The app uses phone notifications to alert the wearer if their temperature rises above a self-selected threshold.
Temperature is one of the most common signals of changes in health - by collecting temperature data frequently and accurately, Verily Patch is designed to support care broadly. The current model can be used for up to three months, the average length of the peak flu season.
Verily Patch is not FDA 510(k)-cleared and is currently marketed under the FDA’s Enforcement Policy for Clinical Electronic Thermometers During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency. It is only available in the US.
