The Thermavis Multi-Person Thermal Scanner, a new thermal scanner which accurately reads the skin temperature of up to six people at once, has launched in the UK following £3 million investment in research and development (R&D).

Its primary function will be to help businesses and organisations quickly and efficiently detect individuals who are carrying a fever – one of the primary symptoms of Covid-19.

The Multi-Person Thermal Scanner is a non-intrusive, cutting-edge thermal camera which is no larger than an iPhone. It uses artificial intelligence and state-of-the-art software to take a reading, in real time, of multiple people’s body temperature with an accuracy of 0.5 degrees Centigrade.

Thermavis is backed by Transputec, the global managed IT services provider. They created the new product to solve the problem of costly, large and intrusive thermal scanners, instead developing an easy to use, independent and flexible monitoring solution for businesses, allowing them to quickly improve safety standards at a low cost.

Thermavis comes with a tablet computer but can also be linked to any Windows machine – allowing multiple monitoring points, remote access, cloud connectivity and shareable screens.

The camera takes a primary reading from the tear duct, the area of the face which gives the most accurate reading and is least likely to be impacted by body heat anomalies, or obscured by face masks. It takes a secondary reading from the forehead to accommodate glasses wearers.

Mark Nightingale, COO, Thermavis commented: “The Covid-19 crisis has caused huge challenges for the health and wellbeing of front-line workers who play a vital role in the running of hospitals, social care and keeping our transport infrastructure running. Likewise, for many businesses returning to work following the lifting of lockdown measures, the issue of keeping staff safe from infection is a top priority.

Our new state-of-the art Thermavis product range is specifically designed to enable efficient and non-intrusive temperature testing. Our cutting-edge hardware combined with the AI-enabled software has left us with a product which is not prone to anomalies or faults, and can be integrated across workplaces, venues, and hospitality locations with ease to get the economy moving again.”

“The portable nature and small size of the camera, means the scanning process is non-intrusive and discreet. The operator can easily move, reposition or relocate the camera, with ease ”

Sonny Sehgal, CEO, Transputec commented: “We’re thrilled to unveil the latest addition to the Transputec portfolio of products and services. Our dedicated team of scientists, engineers, developers and innovators have worked hard to develop a product that will enable employers to swiftly test employees and customers for temperature irregularities, ensuring that suspected cases of Covid-19 can be quickly identified and addressed, protecting staff from risk.”
