Solution for core
Solution for core temperature monitoring
The temperature variable is a key indicator of the subject’s physiological status. The continuous nature of the measurement is quite difficult to obtain and only a few restrictive devices (rectal, esophageal probes, etc.) allow continuous core temperature monitoring.
Dedicated to non-medical application, the eCelsius Performance solution makes possible to collect continuous, reliable and accurate core temperature data while preserving their subjects’ comfort and mobility.
The key elements of the system :
The communication distance between the capsule and the receiving device ranges from 1 to 3m (depending on environment and subject).
The capsule has also its own memory. In case of a communication disruption between the receiving device and the capsule, an automatic data synchronization is thus possible, a posteriori. The same receiving device can manage up to three capsules simultaneously for extended use.

Designed by physiologists, the solution was developed to combine comfort and ease of use. The e-Celsius Performance solution is currently the only solution on the market allowing continuous core temperature monitoring without any constraint for the subject.
Thanks to the on-board memory in the capsule, temperature monitoring can be continuous, without the need to wear the monitor continuously.
Key advantages of the system:
BodyCAP and Equivital have joined forces to offer to researchers a new multiparametric monitoring solution: a simultaneous use of eCelsius Performance and eq02+ LifeMonitor solution is now possible.
The Equivital – eCelsius Performance system keeps the successful key feature of eCelsius Performance: real time monitoring and buffered core temperature data access.
Combined with Equivital’s eq02+ LifeMonitor, the solution gives you easy access to a multi-parametric physiological dataset.
The global solution allows to monitor up to 8 subjects simultaneously thanks to its dedicated EQ-eViewer Performance monitor.
All data and parameters collected by both the EQ-eViewer Performance monitor and the eq02+ LifeMonitor can be downloaded, stored and analysed in the same file thanks to the specific software EQ-Manager.
Various applications: Sport, Research & Clinical
The temperature variable is regularly part of the “Primary outcomes” in the context of a clinical trials. Continuous, reliable and accurate temperature monitoring allows to secure the protocols without adding any constraints for the subject and the operator.
Long duration exercises performed in hot environment induce potential rise in core temperature that could range from hyperthermia to heat stroke. The constraint is similar for people exercising in cold condition; hypothermia risks have to be anticipated.
Core temperature is a key indicator of the subjects’ biological rhythmicity. Continuous monitoring of this variable allows the characterization of the core temperature circadian rhythm, which is critical for sleep analysis and the sleep disorders diagnosis.
