Fever Alert from Wahl Instruments detects elevated body temperatures.

The new line from Wahl offers the flexibility to choose the product that bests suits the user application. These include a handheld infrared thermometer, a thermal imaging camera, and a high resolution thermal imaging system. Wahl Fever Alert™ products detect the hottest temperature on a subject, facilitating further evaluation. They detect critical temperature differences in real time and give off both audible and visible alarms for increased body temperature, or fever above the “normal” (98.6°F or 37°C) which is often a relevant clinical indication of possible infection.

Companies, health departments, government agencies, and all public facilities could benefit from using Wahl Fever Alert™ products to screen individuals, potentially minimizing the spread of Swine and Bird flu. There is no delay processing people with Wahl’s Fever Alert™ products. Non-contact and non-invasive, they are safe for both the subject and the operator. Also available is a blackbody temperature reference source which allows for calibration verification of the unit prior to, and during, use.
