 New Medical Gadget That Will Predict Ovulation Dates
An ovulation pattern temperature monitor that will extrapolate a woman's best days to conceive has been developed by Cambridge Temperature Concepts Ltd. This device has an auxiliary temperature monitoring patch and a receptacle. The temperature data is downloaded from the patch and sent to the service center. According to the CEO and founder of Cambridge Temperature Concepts Ltd., Dr. Shamus Husheer, the device is selling quite well in Middle East, Asia, and Europe. Soon the company is hoping to obtain the approval of US FDA.

The system is based on the concept of basal body temperature (BBT) measurement method. The sensor records the temperature automatically about 20,000 times per day. Also menstruation dates, ovulation pain etc can also be added to obtain more accurate predictions.

The system has an advantage that it identifies the likely dates of ovulation up to six days in advance. This gives plenty of time to plan intercourse during the fertile days.
