A cost-effective body temperature measurement probe is developed using miniature high resolution thermometer. The product is a spin-off from the Expendable Bathy Thermograph (XBT) developed by the laboratory. The temperature probe, consists of a very small thermistor on a pen-like attachment which can detect the body temperature by placing the tip on the mid-arm or forehead region. A hand-held processing unit displays the temperature, and based on the same, highlights whether the person is normal or feverish.
