Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: Keeping body temperature is important to maintain vitality, improve immune function, and keep blood flowing smoothly. If there is any abnormality in thermoregulation function, body temperature should be regulated artificially. The wirelessly rechargeable wearable smart body temperature sensor in this study uses a Peltier element to regulate the temperature of the whole body by inducing a temperature change to a specific body part. As a result of inducing the temperature change by operating on the wrist when body temperature fluctuation caused by the surrounding temperature, the average increase rate of the 100 experimental data was 33.5 %, the standard deviation was 25.5 %, the average fall rate was 1.6 %, and the standard deviation was 0.7 %. The developed wearable smart body temperature induction sensor will help the body temperature control of various diseases such as elderly people and cholinergic urticaria, whose voluntary thermoregulation is limited or body temperature change is adversely affecting the body.
