Non-Contact Clinical Fever Thermometer (Medical Diagnostics)
It is common practice to check the temperature level of a person as an indication of their state of health. Different methodologies for doing this exist, such as oral (mouth), rectal (anus), ear (tympanic), forehead, axilla (armpit), etc.
To ensure patient comfort, as well as reducing the risk of passing infection on to medical staff, there is a shift away from the traditional invasive approaches used in the past towards non-invasive ones. Melexis’ infrared (IR) sensing technology is highly suited to implementation in thermometry equipment of this kind.
