FDA-cleared contactless temperature screening station supports safety in shared spaces

Feb. 4, 2021

Canon Solutions America, Inc. announced welloStationX, an FDA-cleared automated, no-touch clinical thermometer, which serves as a real-time temperature monitoring station.

The welloStationX is designed to quickly read the temperatures of individuals entering a communal space to help reduce the risk of spreading germs. Rik Heller, founder of Wello, Inc., developed welloStationX in 2014 in response to the Ebola virus crisis. Since that time, safety-conscious businesses in industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, government, and more have used the welloStationX to support high productivity and help avoid outbreaks that could lead to costly shutdowns.

Utilizing a biomedical infrared sensor, a welloStationX user’s temperature is recorded in three seconds. If an individual registers a normal body temperature below the threshold (default of under 99.5 °F), an “I'm Wello” identification sticker is dispensed. When a temperature above the threshold is detected, no sticker is issued and an alert is sent to designated facility personnel. As the welloStationX kiosk scans temperatures and collects data, the Wello portal helps configure the information to meet an organization’s needs.

The welloStationX provides:

·        Clinical accuracy, verified by clinical testing

·         Privacy-conscious temperature screening data

·         Touchless monitoring alleviates the need for staff dedicated to temperature screening

·         Predictive analysis indicators can alert staff members to potential outbreaks

Canon has the release.
