Staying Open-Minded About Your Healthcare

When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, I didn't know what I was going to do. After the devastation subsided, I decided to take a very standard, western approach to my healing. Although initial efforts were successful, my cancer recurred a few months later. I endured many additional months of treatment before I started focusing on myself. I decided it was time to incorporate complimentary alternative treatments into my healing regimen, including massage therapy. I can't even begin to tell you how much it changed my life. My healing became a process, instead of something I simply had to endure. I hope that the articles on my website can inspire you to stay open-minded about your own healthcare.

How To Use A Temperature Scanning Kiosk To Protect Your Event

Health & Medical Blog

During a major event, such as a conference or a trade show, it can be difficult to vet visitors to make sure that they are not sick before entering the venue. Employees could take the temperature of the attendees, but there is then a risk that the employees will contract the illness. Fortunately, this problem can be solved with the help of a temperature-scanning kiosk.

How the Kiosk Works

The temperature-scanning kiosks are highly effective because they scan the forehead. This is an ideal area of the body for scanning an individual to take their temperature. They are able to scan one person at a time and require that the individual stand far enough away to get a good reading. 

Facial Recognition Technology and Face Tracking

The kiosk is able to read the temperature of the individual who is being scanned so that they can take their temperature. They also keep track of a user profile so that they can scan for variations in their temperature and better detect if they are sick before entering a venue. The kiosk is able to map the features of the individual's face for the purpose of using facial recognition technology. 

Once the face has been scanned, the kiosk will scan through millions of images of other faces that are found in databases. It's then possible to track the historical temperatures of an individual.

Measures Taken After Detecting a High Temperature

The kiosk will also perform a quick interview to ask the individual whether they have any symptoms after the kiosk has identified that they have symptoms that are above a specific threshold — such as a high temperature.

If you do not want employees to be exposed to visitors who might be sick, another approach is to have the kiosk connected to a door that does not open unless the visitor has met the correct threshold. 

Useful Data Recorded by the Kiosk

The kiosk can be programmed to record other useful data as well. For example, if you want to keep track of how many attendees went to your event, you will be able to do so with the temperature scanning system for this purpose.

The Effectiveness of Temperature Scanning Systems

While the kiosk is not able to perfectly stop the spread of infectious diseases, it can be used to identify individuals who might have been exposed to infectious diseases so they can receive the care they need.
