Affordable Bird Flu Thermal Screening Camera System


Asheville, NC –March 16, 2006 – Amid growing fears of bird flu pandemic and the threat of the virulent strain spreading through human-to-human transmission, Wahl Instruments Inc. announces the Wahl Fever Alert Imaging System designed specifically for mass screening of public areas like air/sea ports, rail/subway stations and large industrial manufacturing facilities, for individuals with elevated body temperatures. An increased body temperature, or fever, from the "normal" (98.6 °F or 37°C) is often a good clinical indication of possible infection.

The easy to operate Wahl Fever Alert Imaging System produces a real-time thermal picture of facial skin surface temperature as each person passes by the camera and with its special software triggers both a visual and audible alarm if the temperature reading is above a user predefined threshold. The system also includes a temperature reference source that allows the camera to be precisely calibrated prior to and during use.

The small Wahl Fever Alert Imaging System is based on the latest detector technology and can resolve surface temperature differences of ±0.5º C and when combined with its software and temperature reference source makes it an efficient and very affordable screening solution.
