The Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer brings medical technology to the fingertips of anxious parents.

After its previous success with a connected Smart Thermometer, Kinsa is releasing the Smart Ear Thermometer, a version of the product aimed at the parents of younger children. The Smart Ear Thermometer measures kids' temperatures by ear in a matter of seconds. Most useful for parents, the Smart Ear Thermometer comes with a new Kinsa app (which will also be available to owners of the original Smart Thermometer) called Guidance. Guidance offers advice on what to do to help a sick child, depending on the child's temperature. It also crowdsources data to track viruses that may be going around schools and neighborhoods. So by simply measuring their child's temperature with the Smart Ear Thermometer, parents are advised of what their child is most likely to have and what to do next.
