FevIR Scan 2 Elevated Skin Temperature Measuring System & Face Mask Detection
Why FevIR Scan?
FevIR Scan 2 elevated skin surface temperature screening system and face mask detection is ideal for high speed individual screening in areas such as airports, transport systems, manufacturing plants, factories, schools and other public venues for use as a risk management tool.
The miniature, discreet and ultra portable FevIR Scan Skin Temperature Monitoring system provides high speed sensitive skin temperature measurement. The system is based on Thermoteknix FevIR Scan combined thermal and colour visual imaging cameras working in conjunction with a blackbody temperature calibration unit for high accuracy temperature measurement with Thermoteknix FevIR Scan 2 software. The FevIR Scan Fever Screening System is an adjunctive screening system which is serving in many countries around the world in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Central and South America and Africa.
The FevIR Scan thermal imaging and temperature measurement system from Thermoteknix is easily installed, operated and relocated with the very minimum of setup time and operator training. The system is password-protected to prevent unauthorised changes while the flexible configuration software allows the user to select Thermal and Visible Picture Side by Side, or Picture-in-Picture together with recalled images as needed for alarms and additional temperature monitoring.
FevIR Scan 2 systems are not intended, nor designed, to diagnose or detect medical conditions including, but not limited to, viruses or other illnesses. Thermoteknix FevIR Scan 2 should be used to perform initial skin temperature assessment for triage use. An elevated temperature measurement should be confirmed with secondary evaluation methods (e.g. non-contact infrared thermometer (NCIT) or clinical grade contact thermometer).
Important Limitations and Disclaimers
Human skin temperature is affected by a wide number of environmental and physiological factors. An elevated facial skin temperature may signify a raised body core temperature; correspondingly, an elevated core temperature may not be accompanied by a raised facial skin temperature. FevIR Scan systems are accurate scientific systems that must be operated strictly in accordance with the manufacturer’s Operation Manual. FevIR Scan systems are not intended, nor designed, to diagnose or detect medical conditions including, but not limited to, viruses or other illnesses. Thermoteknix thermal imaging products should only be used to detect variations of surface temperature. In the event that an elevated skin temperature is detected, the subject should be immediately checked with an approved medical thermometer and the finding confirmed. Absence of an elevated skin temperature does not exclude a fever.
- FevIR Scan 2 is not approved by the FDA. While thermal imaging is not an effective diagnostic device for COVID-19, it can determine if someone has an elevated temperature, which can be an important risk management tool during the pandemic when used properly.
- The FevIR Scan 2 measurement should not be solely or primarily relied upon to diagnose or exclude a diagnosis of COVID-19, or any other disease;
- Elevated body temperature in the context of use should be confirmed with secondary evaluation methods (e.g., an NCIT or clinical grade contact thermometer);
- Public health officials, through their experience with the device in the particular environment of use, should determine the significance of any fever or elevated temperature based on the skin telethermographic temperature measurement;
- The technology should be used to measure only one subject’s temperature at a time;
- Visible thermal patterns are only intended for locating the points from which to extract the thermal measurement.
- For use instructions, device performance specifications and the methodology, and frequency of any calibration needed to maintain the labelled specifications please refer to the documentation and labelling supplied with the system.
- FevIR Scan 2 must be operated in accordance with ISO/TR 13154: 2017: Medical electrical equipment — Deployment, implementation and operational guidelines for identifying febrile humans using a screening thermograph.
