The rise of diseases linked to modern lifestyles has also led to the search for new ways of handling these challenges. Japan has taken the lead by launching a device for women to measure their body temperature, which tells a lot about their health, body rhythm and gynecological illness. In Japan, a survey among 50 female workers in the age group of 20 and 30 revealed that just 10 per cent measure their body temperature regularly. To reverse this trend, two enterprises - TOSHIBA and RAKUTEN have developed a smart phone based application service with easy connected thermometer. It is fitted with a microprocessor, which not only measures the body temperature, but also sends the information directly to a smart phone with just the push of a button.
