Kinsa is an early-stage, venture-backed startup that works at the intersection of technology, design, and healthcare. We are transforming how people care for themselves and their families through elegant mobile software and unique mobile hardware products. These products also advance our overall mission: to create the world’s first real-time map of human health.

Our first product is a smartphone-connected thermometer that helps users track their illness history, share that with physicians, manage and plan around their illness, and view the "health weather" in their local area.

The Kinsa Smart Thermometer itself has no batteries, LCD, or processor, instead leveraging the power of the smartphone to allow the device to be thin, flexible, and comfortable to use, especially for children. The thermometer connects to the phone via the headphone jack, keeping its cost far lower than the costs of other existing mobile-connected medical devices. With a price point on par with most current non-connected thermometers, Kinsa's focus is on widespread access to better health information.

Here's an initial list of features we're offering:

  • An accurate and fast thermometer that exceeds accuracy & safety requirements
  • Ability to save and share symptom history
  • Illness forecasting feature that tells you when you are sick and when you will likely get better*
  • One-touch call nurse*
  • Urgent care scheduling*
  • Ability to send photos and videos to your doctor*

(*currently in development for release at launch)
