Caring Things Reaches Crowdfunding Goal on Indiegogo for Tympani Smart Thermometer

COLUMBUS, OH – Sep 3, 2015 – Caring Things, Inc is announcing the launch of a new smart thermometer, Tympani, that surpassed the initial goal of $10,000.  Tympani is an infrared ear thermometer for iPhone and Android.  Enhanced capabilities over traditional thermometers include wellness tracking, health journal, and telehealth integration. Tympani generates an accurate and consistent temperature reading in just 2 seconds and does not use a battery.  Caring Things is developing a line of smart healthcare devices for consumers that are designed to enhance telehealth and allow consumers to maintain a personal medical record.  To launch the new smart thermometer, the Caring Things team turned to Indiegogo to connect with first customers.  Tympani is now available for as low as $25 on Indiegogo.

A thermometer is a standard home healthcare device and the first line of defense for parents.  Tympani was designed to be more affordable and more insightful than any smart thermometer on the market.  In 2 seconds, Tympani quickly and non-invasively detects body temperature by reading the tympanic membrane inside the ear.  Strategically designed to fit in your pocket for on-the-go use, Tympani is the World’s smallest smart thermometer and requires NO BATTERIES.

Caring Things Co-Founder, Ryan McManus, said, “We are thrilled with the response to our campaign so far.  Indiegogo will continue to be our go-to platform for launching new Caring Things products.  We are currently in development of additional healthcare devices that will be announced in the coming months and they will all integrate into one app.”

Tympani works with iOS and Android devices and works for all ages.  Tympani is ideal for new moms, parents and those with conditions that require frequent monitoring of your temperature.   Tympani works with the Caring Things app to quickly record your temperature.  Users are able to select emoji’s for quick symptom tracking or enter detailed notes into the Caring Things Health Journal.  Tympani is a CE certified class 2 medical device, and will be cleared by the FDA within 4 months of the campaign completion. Contributors to the campaign will receive Tympani with a softshell carrying case, plus the Caring Things companion app.  A limited number of units have been made available for immediate delivery.  Anticipated MSRP for Tympani is $40.
