SteadySense GmbH


Based on the sensor patch there are two main applications:

1.   femSense fertility tracking

In this application the sensor detects a woman's ovulation, and the accompanying mobile app displays the fertile days. The women can use the information to increase the likelihood of pregnancy if she wants to have children or to just track her fertility.

USP: This so-called temperature method has been known for almost 100 years, the innovation of the product is the massive increase in reliability due to continuous temperature measurements because temperature curves, rather than a single measurement point per day, are compared to detect the basal temperature increase (see: The product is very easy to use, skin friendly and hormone free.

2.   SteadyTemp continuous temperature measurement

The same temperature sensor has an approval as a medical thermometer which measures the body temperature every few minutes. This allows the user's body temperature to be continuously monitored and displayed as a temperature curve on a smartphone or other mobile device for further diagnoses by the user od doctors.

USP: Temperature curves can be an excellent base and early indicator for infections e.g. Covid-19 or any other disease (see: The product is very easy to use, skin friendly and comfortable.
