About Prima-Temp

In 2018, Kindara was acquired by Prima-Temp, Inc to continue Kindara’s legacy in women’s health. 

Prima-Temp is built on the foundation of utilizing continuous core body temperature to improve lives.

Prima-Temp uses the science of temperature, a reliable marker of circadian rhythm, to find patterns that may predict, confirm, and provide information about specific health parameters. Your circadian rhythm patterns are unique to you and tell a story about your health and wellbeing. Technology has only recently advanced enough to capture these patterns so that you can be in the driver's seat of your fertility and health. 

Future applications will be designed to help solve sleep issues, provide weight loss support, and assist in early sepsis detection.
