Canon Solutions America, Inc. has announced welloStationX, an automated, FDA-cleared no-touch clinical thermometer. The welloStationX is a real-time temperature monitoring station which merges health technology and screening practices together.
“By proactively detecting people with elevated body temperatures in a completely self-service fashion, we can help stop the spread of infection and keep employees safe. We’re extremely confident in the effectiveness of this method,” said Rik Heller, Wello’s founder. “We’re pleased to partner with Canon Solutions America, Inc., to bring the welloStationX to their customers. It’s one more step forward in our mission to help end the spread of contagious illnesses.”
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 of January 2021, the welloStationX has performed more than seven million temperature scans. Since fever is one of the leading indicators of infection and best predictor of contagiousness, Wello is helping to keep workers safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic through temperature and infectious disease monitoring.
“Canon Solutions America, Inc., is proud to offer the innovative welloStationX solution to our customers,” said Peter P. Kowalczuk, president, Canon Solutions America, Inc. “In today’s ever-changing environment, safety is a paramount concern. This solution supplies a protective and proactive method to enhance safety protocols by screening potentially infected individuals while gathering and storing critical health information in order to help ensure the wellbeing of those entering shared environments. With this kind of powerful technology, we’re in a position to help organizations safeguard their staff and visitors while also maintaining productivity.”
