Temperature Screening Technology Simplified – With social distancing and preventative measures being critical, organisations are implementing enhanced safety protocols to help ensure their premises are safer.
The COVID-19 pandemic raises particular challenges for care home residents, their families and the staff that look after them as the majority of people living in care homes are over the age of 80. Most have multiple long-term health conditions, and the majority of residents are affected by physical disability and cognitive impairment.
There is much that can be done in care homes to improve outcomes for residents during the pandemic and The Digital Line (TDL) have been keen to implement a variety of technology to care homes to alleviate the strain of these new challenges. Elo’s modular temperature screening hardware helps support these efforts.
With the Elo Access Solution, you get robust temperature screening software and a ready to go kiosk complete with a 15-inch Android Interactive Display, Temperature Sensor Pro and your choice of stand, ranging from desktop to stand alone.
Although this is an aid, the Elo Access Temperature Sensor is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, mitigate, or prevent any disease or health condition, including COVID-19. It purely highlights an indication of an elevated body temperature.
Benefits of Temperature Screening Technology:
Detect a High Body Temperature in Real-time
Utilising an infrared bolometer and 2D camera, the temperature sensor can output temperature data for each person detected in the field of view (FOV) in under a second. Giving real-time information on who is entering the establishment.
As we know, a high body temperature or fever is one of the main symptoms of COVID-19. Therefore, you can detect and stop infected persons from entering their premises, helping to stop the spread of the virus.
Protect Staff, Visitors and Suppliers
Incorporating Temperatures Screening Technology is an essential way to help protect anyone who is entering your premises. It is also a great way to help boost staff morale and productivity. If staff members are not worrying whether the person next to them has symptoms of COVID-19, they will be more happy, relaxed and in a positive frame of mind.
Reassurance and Improving Public Perception
Due to the vulnerability of residents in care homes, after lockdown restrictions are lifted public perceptions and fear will live for a long time after the virus.
incorporating Temperature Screening Technology into your post-COVID-19 procedures could have a massive impact. The Temperature Screening technology can be made easily visible to anyone entering the care home, highlighting your efforts to protect their wellbeing and gives staff and residents peace of mind.
