Can I reuse my FeverFrida patches?
We recommended to disregard the patch after every 24 hours, do not repaste adhesives. If an adhesive is already folded over, a new patch is required.
What is the size or battery used for the FeverFrida?
The battery is a Panasonic CR 2025 3V that may be found in any Drug Store.
My FeverFrida is not working anymore. Can you please help?
No data during usage may be caused by the following reasons:
Low battery. Please change the battery and restart the FeverFrida.
Disconnection between FeverFrida and smartphones. To ensure the stability of
connection, please keep your smart phone/iPad above the FeverFrida within 3-5 feet
FeverFrida is used for continuous monitoring for fever progression observation rather than instant measurements. We recommend the FeverFrida be at room temperature for 5 mins before usage. And during the first 3-8 mins of wearing the FeverFrida, parents should help their children hold their arm against their body until the reading on the app is stable. Also, please check if the patch is loose and the metal part of the FeverFrida is not contacting the skin directly. If so, the reading will be lower than actual body temperature. It is normal that different thermometers have different readings at different spots (oral, ear, rectal or armpit).
What is the adhesive patch made of?
Our FeverFrida patches are latex free and are made with a non-irritating hydrogel.
What if my baby squirms or moves at night? Will the monitor fall off?

What kind of metal is the sensor on the FeverFrida made of?
The FeverFrida sensor is made of the same stainless steel (SUS304) normally used on medical devices.
I don’t understand the cloud option on my FeverFrida. Please help.
No problem! Cloud service is used for remote monitoring of your child’s fever. It requires using two receivers, one in the same room as your child syncing his/her temp, the other for you to use to view your child’s temp from anywhere in the world. Both receivers must have a strong internet connection. You need to sign into the same profile on each of the receivers to view the data and notifications.
How many days of temperature data can I store on my FeverFrida? What if I lose my Bluetooth connection?
You can store up to 10 days of data even when bluetooth connection is lost, using the device’s built-in memory. You can even explore the data via the Export Report feature and easily share with caregivers.

How far away can I be from my baby and still stay connected to the FeverFrida Bluetooth?
If you’re only using one smart device, you must be within a 40-foot range. However, you can use the iCloud option for remote monitoring. Just connect the FeverFrida to an old smart device within the 40-foot range and connect your cell phone to the cloud following these steps: 1. Prepare 2 smart devices (A & B), both should have internet access. 2. Connect the FeverFrida to Device A via bluetooth. 3. Place FeverFrida as directed under your baby’s arm. 4. Make sure Device A is connected to the internet (and a power source so the battery doesn’t run out. Open the iThermonitor app on Device A so that the temperature reading will be uploaded to the cloud in real-time. 5. Connect Device B (your cellphone) to the internet and login to the iThermonitor app with the same account, choosing same user as Device A to access temperature information from the cloud in real-time, anywhere.
