BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Prima-Temp, Inc., a company that has developed and patented wireless, continuous temperature monitoring technologies to address a variety of physiologic needs, was chosen to give an oral presentation of scientific and clinical data surrounding Priya, their groundbreaking fertility sensor, at the ASRM conference held this week in Baltimore, MD.
ASRM is the premier education and research conference for reproductive medicine. Prima-Temp was chosen to be a presenter after a review process by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine review committee.
Prima-Temp's presentation, entitled "Passive Fertility Prediction Using A Novel Vaginal Ring And Smartphone Application," is being presented by Dr. Donald Aptekar, MD, FACOG, President of Partners in Women's Health, on Wednesday October 21st at 12:15pm in room 309.
Priya is a discreet, wireless sensor that continuously and passively tracks a woman's core body temperature, detecting the subtle changes that occur before ovulation, and then sends an alert to the Priya app on her smartphone when she is most fertile. Priya is an over-the-counter, FDA-regulated medical device.
The research being presented at ASRM shows potential for Priya to predict a woman's fertile window 2 days prior to ovulation, based on a pre-ovulatory decline in body temperature than can only be detected via circadian rhythm monitoring with a continuous, core temperature sensor such as Priya. Data indicates that conception is more likely to be successful if intercourse takes place in the days immediately prior to ovulation.
Prima-Temp is also exhibiting in the exhibit Hall at ASRM, booth #405.
Prima-Temp announced pre-sales of Priya last week, with orders being taken online for a limited time (www.prima-temp.com), and at the Prima-Temp booth.
"We are thrilled to share the results of this research with our colleagues at ASRM," said Dr. Lauren Costantini, PhD, CEO of Prima-Temp. "Priya's ability to collect continuous, core body temperature allows it to be both effortless and precise. Our rigorous scientific and clinical data show the capability of Priya to bring valuable information about a woman's cycle right to her smartphone."
Full session details and data presentation listings for the 2015 meeting can be found on the ASRM website at www.asrm.org.
Prima-Temp brings new, innovative approaches to many of today's healthcare challenges through the application of 21st century thermometry. Prima-Temp's continuous temperature sensors and associated software allow the most precise method to measure true core body temperature, with the potential to address a multitude of applications including the Priya personal fertility sensor, early disease detection, sleep disorders, drug therapy, weight control and exercise.
