As our society comes out of the "first wave" of the Covid19 pandemic, we are faced with the reality that it is not gone but that we hopefully have it under control. Should the infection rates begin to rise again authorities will again invoke lockdowns.
So how doe we manage this. I think we all know by now to continue practicing social distancing, to wear masks in public and to wash and sanitize our hands and work surfaces regularly.
Recent studies from WHO seem to indicate the spread by asymptomatic individual will be rare. This put s even more emphasis on checking our symptoms and getting tested if unsure.
One way we can test ourselves and others is daily temperature checks and in public areas (work, retail, transit etc.) to screen all persons for temperature deviations as people become most infectious when a fever conditions arises.
Scigiene supplies Standard Medical Grade Forehead thermometers and when used by professionals these are a good screening tool, but they also require close contact and the accuracy is overstated (=/-0.3C to a blackbody calibrator) but is nowhere close to this on a human forehead).
Scigiene has worked with partners to develop the FR-ITS (Facial Recognition Infrared Thermometry System) to deliver the worlds most accurate forehead temperature measurement system. The combination of the most advanced facial recognition software combined with equally advanced thermal imaging allows for the superior automated temperature monitoring.
The FRITS Gatekeeper eliminates close contact required using standard forehead thermometers and will automatically take temperatures and then pass or fail a person entering your premises with no direct contact is ideal as a Gatekeeper entry tool for screening of your employees, visitors and customers in a fast and non-invasive way.
It can log employees and visitors automatically while displaying temperatures and can even alert users to wear a mask and has many other advanced features to control entry and alarming.
This will also save on labour since taking forehead temperatures is standard practice and will likely be so for a long time to come.
Do not be fooled by knockoff units (tablets with an I. R scanner attached to the top). They are not as accurate as they claim.
