BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) - A Maine company is using a crowdfunding campaign to launch a high-tech thermometer.

Brunswick-based Check-My-Temp is marketing a thermometer that’s worn like an armband and monitors temperature, body position and movement. The information is sent to a smartphone app that allows users to receive detailed history including fever spikes.

Jeeva Healthcare CEO Anthony Jaccarino says the initial marketing targets parents of babies. But he says the device can be useful in elder care, post-op care, and fertility monitoring.

The thermometer was designed and engineered in Brunswick. It’s currently the subject of an “indiegogo” campaign to raise money to begin production by this spring.
