CORE FOR SPORTS PERFORMANCE
For sport and exercise, the importance of core body temperature is simple; when you get hot, your power output drops.
The core body temperature of each person is quite individual, some people can naturally accommodate more heat while others require more training and conditioning in order to perform at their best while applying the cooling strategies that work best for them.
There are a range of specific sporting applications that benefit from monitoring the core body temperature including Heat Stress, Heat Acclimation, Heat Training, Pacing and Strategy as well as Active Cooling. These are outlined in more detail here: How to Use CORE.
A host of well-known teams, athletes, coaches and sports scientists already CORE.
CORE FOR EVERYDAY, WORKPLACES AND COVID PREVENTION
The CORE website focuses upon CORE for sports performance, the applications for this technology are quite broad. The same CORE device can be used in many ways.
Medical : CORE has emergency FDA approval and can be sold in North America as a medical device. We are working on the full FDA and EMA approval.
The CORE technology has been used extensively in clinical trials and within this field has applications for early detection of Alzheimers and Parkinson’s disease (by monitoring the Circadian Rhythm) as well as Sepsis and other health conditions including the flu. You can read more about the medical studies here.
Home-Use : For home-use, CORE is suited to 24/7 monitoring using the supplied medical patches. In comparison to (tympanic) ear thermometers or infra-red thermometer solutions (which can show readings that vary by over 2ºC), CORE is non-invasive, it is very accurate and the history is logged on the smart-phone.
For infants with the flu, it is easy to view and monitor the temperature using the smartphone app without waking a sleeping child.
Workplace Health and Safety : For professions such as firefighting, production facilities and in locations with extreme heat where workers are subject to elevated temperatures, continual monitoring can help ensure work safety.
With the Covid pandemic, continual monitoring is also used to help prevent the spread of the virus. In workplaces with wireless monitoring, if one or more staff members are detected with discrepancies, they can be isolated and then tested as part of the early detection and prevention strategy.
