Core temperature and especially overheating of a runner’s core can be a major health risk at running events. In 2014, a healthy young adult died because of cardiac arrest caused by overheating of the core body.
MyTemp BV is start-up company based in Nijmegen that aims to develop an innovative, reliable, plug and play and affordable system to measure core temperature. The Mytemp capsule was successfully tested at the “Dam to Dam” run, a Dutch 16.1 km (10 miles) running event.
The Wittenburg Group’s Research and Development team closely cooperated with MyTemp to develop material needed for the body monitoring capsule. In 2018, Wittenburg supplied MyTemp with the special granulate to form the capsule successfully used in today’s Dam tot Dam run.
The capsule and Mytemp was aired by RTL Nieuws and can be viewed here (Dutch news)
