The Covid-19 Pandemic

 

The Covid-19 pandemic has created an immediate worldwide need for consumer health self-monitoring technologies. As with any viral infection, one of the first signs of illness is the onset of a fever. Ideally, fever monitoring is done by patients at-home using their phones.

Gentag, Inc. and its patent holding company, Altivera, LLC, are experienced in the area of wireless self-monitoring technologies, having predicted the Near Field Communication (NFC) consumer diagnostics cell phone markets in 2003.
