Cambridge Temperature Concepts Wins Prestigious Award From the Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance for Fertility Monitor DuoFertility
Date:5/25/2011

CAMBRIDGE, England, May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambridge Temperature Concepts (CTC), the company behind the revolutionary fertility monitor, DuoFertility, has been awarded an I Award by the Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance (WLSA) in recognition of its contribution to solving healthcare challenges. DuoFertility uses wireless technology to predict when ovulation will occur and offers couples trying for a baby the best possible chance of conceiving naturally. News of this win follows CTC's award in January of 100,000 Euros as the European finalist in the Qualcomm Ventures' QPrize competition.

CTC was founded in 2005 by a group of scientists from the University of Cambridge to use wireless sensing technology to help the one-in-seven couples who struggle to get pregnant naturally. DuoFertility consists of a small wireless sensor that's worn as a stick-on patch under a woman's arm. It measures body temperature 20,000 times a day to detect the subtle change in temperature that occurs around ovulation. Results are wirelessly transmitted to a hand-held reader, which highlights the most fertile time up to six days in advance, giving couples plenty of time to plan to be together. When the hand-held reader is plugged into a computer via the USB port, it sends the results to CTC's fertility experts in Cambridge for further analysis and advice.  

A distinguished WLSA judging panel selected CTC from 100 international applications to win the I Award for Best Clinical Applicability. Award applicants were asked to articulate how their solution addresses healthcare challenges by reducing costs and improving outcomes. Couples using DuoFertility get the level of personal support and success rates normally only associated with in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) clinics but without the expense, invasive proce
