Kinsa Health, based in New York, has developed the Kinsa smartphone connected thermometer. Kinsa had an indiegogo campaign in the summer of 2013, and launched at TEDMed. It is compatible with iPhones 4S and up. The Kinsa Smart thermometer is directly connected to an iOS app that displays onscreen animations to relax children and allows for individual profiles.
In January of 2014, Kinsa received FDA 510(k) clearance for the smart thermometer. The smart thermometer can now be purchased online for $24.99. In the future, Kinsa hopes to inform users of health trends regionally.
