Project Title

Assessing thermoregulatory deficits of trained individuals with a spinal cord injury exercising in the heat

Chief Investigator

Ollie Jay


Gastrointestinal temperature can be recorded noninvasively using an ingestible telemetric sensor/pill. The single-use pills transit body temperature measurements wirelessly to an external data logger, which can be stored or monitored continuously. This method offers an alternative way to measure deep body temperature in spinal cord injured persons, as rectal temperature is considered inappropriate for this population.
