As part of his PhD programme, Pasindu Lugoda has developed an armband incorporating embedded electronics that is capable of capturing the temperature at four different points on the skin and displaying the result with software developed using LabView. The software allows the user to set temperature limits and a warning signal appears when the limits are breached. The software also stores the data captured on an excel sheet. The next step is to incorporate wireless connectivity.
