Body Temperature Screening Technology

Slow the Spread of COVID-19 and other Viruses

Fever is one of the most frequent symptoms of a viral infection. Recently, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) issued guidance “expanding the use of telethermographic systems for triage use during the public health crisis.”  Because fever is a common symptom of a virus, the FDA says that telethermographic systems, which convert infrared radiation into body temperature measurement, can be deployed to use for initial triage at high-traffic areas.

DataSpan’s state-of-the-art, automated, touch-free biometric thermal screening solution is easily installed at entry and other key points at your facility. This technology will alert you whenever a person with an elevated temperature attempts to enter your facility or whose temperature elevates during their workday.  These potentially infected individuals can be alerted and seek further care from a medical professional.  Co-workers who may have come in contact with such a person can be identified and alerted as well.  Surfaces in the workspace that may have been touched by anyone with an elevated temperature can be cleaned and disinfected promptly.

This automated Personnel Temperature Screening Solution will provide an early warning not otherwise possible to help prevent and slow the spread of COVID-19 and other similar viruses in the future.

For additional information regarding how to protect your workplace from COVID-19, we recommend the CDC Guidance for Business and Employers.
