The device has been designed with parents and children in mind, leveraging the smartphone to make taking a temperature a more engaging and informative process.
The investment will be used to help the company quickly scale production, recruit top tier talent, expand marketing activities and the product line.
The feature allows parents to monitor the overall health at their child's school to track and stop the spread of illness at the earliest signs of symptoms.
The device with a companion app goes beyond basic temperature readings to provide symptom tracking and actionable next steps based on key health indicators.
The Teladoc app can detect the Kinsa app on a user's phone, and offer the option to import up to 10 days of temperature readings into the Teladoc platform.
The financing will be used to develop additional smart products and services to further Kinsa's mission to better track and stop the spread of illness.
