Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

254-09-29-17 Nokia Thermo Temporal Smart Thermometer
Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Cold and flu season is upon us!  Traditional thermometers are nice to check one's temperature, but can be messy and unsanitary.  Nokia offers Thermo, which is a contact-free smart thermometer that tracks body temperature, medications, and more.
Thermo features a large digital display and a color-coded LED indicator light notifying users if their temperature is normal, mild, or high based on the age of the user.  The thermometer pairs with an app via Bluetooth and WiFI.   
The app allows users to track temperatures, get reminders, and input related symptoms or medications directly on their smartphone.  
Visit to learn more about how the Thermo works!
