As the world comes to grips with the effects of COVID-19, the time to adjust to a new normal is now. The rapid spread of COVID-19 has changed and will continue to change how we live, in ways we would not have thought possible. Today’s new normal for businesses include work-from-home challenges, numerous simultaneously sick workers, plagued supply chains, uncertain compliance obligations, and the process of applying for new government programs to ease the pain.
To help both manage the current situation and prepare for what happens in the coming weeks, ideas of what should be done are flying in different directions. However, we can all agree that an easy, fast, and versatile solution has to emerge to be implemented in our society. Using advanced sensor and software technology, Soter Technologies develops and delivers innovative solutions for environmental and social intelligence – to make the world a safer place. This time around, Soter Technologies needed to innovate a product that could be implemented virtually anywhere, contain a user-friendly interface, and allow it to be multifunctional. After hours of discussion and a process of implementation, a solution has arrived with the creation of SymptomSense™.
SymptomSense™ is fast, easy, non-invasive, and versatile in health screening and metal detection. Visually, the implementation is very similar to a metal detector at an airport. With the world’s first Medical Evaluation Gateway, traffic flow should remain consistent and unrestricted to minimize the time a single person remains within the gateway – this time is estimated to be 5 seconds.
SymptomSense™ screens for CDC recommended symptoms: Blood Oxygen Level, Temperature, Heart Rate, and Respiration Rate. We do not use thermal imaging technology as temperature alone does not determine health status. Under prime circumstances, Thermal Imager temperature scanners can only get within a 0.5°C of accuracy. Essentially, not having sufficient health information on a person provides a false sense of security. During these times, the keys to success are preparation, agility, and accurate data. SymptomSense™ leads the way to the new normal. SymptomSense™ is the solution to reduce the chance of mass infections on a global scale.
