BrightSign announced Monday that EonDigital has incorporated the BrightSign HD1024 media player in its new temperature-screening solution, ExoMetrics Wrist. This new solution achieves temperature measurements by taking hundreds of temperature readings in seconds. According to EonDigital, it also all but eliminates false positive readings and enables businesses to safely screen patrons with minimal disruption.
Temperature checks have become an essential part of businesses and schools reopening in the wake of COVID-19. Common temperature-screening methods either rely on hand-held devices that pose a viral transmission risk or hands-free solutions that work effectively only when used properly by the patron or customer. EonDigital says ExoMetrics Wrist overcomes these challenges with its unique design and engineering.
While most temperature-screening devices use the forehead as the point of measurement, EonDigital’s new device focuses on the wrist, an area of the body that is less likely to produce an artificially high reading due to physical exertion or environmental conditions. According to EonDigital, not only does the wrist yield a more accurate reading, ExoMetrics Wrist actually takes approximately 300 readings in just a few seconds, yielding a temperature measurement accurate within .5 degrees Celsius. ExoMetrics Wrist also takes advantage of an algorithm that processes recent readings to identify environmental trends, further reducing the likelihood of false-positive readings.
ExoMetrics Wrist sits at a comfortable height that is suitable for use by children and adults alike. Similarly, the device is within easy reach of people who may be seated in a wheelchair or other assisted mobility device. This broad accessibility suits ExoMetrics Wrist particularly well not just to businesses and retail environments, but also to airports, theaters and other entertainment venues that attract a diverse crowd of all ages.
EonDigital has a proven track record of working with BrightSign in various environments, including projects in educational, scientific, retail and corporate settings across the country. ExoMetrics Wrist is the latest collaboration between BrightSign and EonDigital, whose partnership has spanned nearly a decade. The next such integration will involve InReality, helping the company expand its advanced software platform that powers Safe Space solutions to help businesses safely resume operations following the COVID-19 shutdown.
