Designing a Multi-Color Display Adhesive Thermometer Based on the TRIZ Systematic Innovation Method


  • Youn-Jan Lin



The electronic thermometer model presented in this paper has two unique features, first it is easily attachable to a spot and second it provides a continuous readout of temperature by a method combining visual and digital signals.  It is derived from TRIZ Su-Field analysis and is termed a Multi-Color Display Adhesive Thermometer. It is mainly intended for use with sick children.  It has been featured in many exhibitions, gained a Silver and two Gold Medals, and has been patented in the USA, China and the R.O.C. (Taiwan).
