The scent and ambience in clinics or other medical institutions tend to make preschool children nervous and irritable. Under this condition, they may refuse to open their mouths when requested by the physician for diagnosis or treatment.
In order to solve this problem, we design a fruity-smell detection stick with inbuilt thermochromism technology. It can be used to divert the child’s attention, allowing physicians to smoothly inspect the throat, whilst taking an oral temperature quickly and learn whether the child has a fever.
