05 May Innovative Healthcare Technology to learn from
In light of the current pandemic, more and more innovators and entrepreneurs are trying to find new ways to do things.
Innovators and entrepreneurs are taking previously traditional technology, such as conventional vending machines, and adding touchless options, and sensors, upgrading the interaction, as well as reducing the amount of contact necessary. Thermometers have also seen a change.
Developers are using various technologies such as artificial intelligence, face recognition and infrared, which will allow consumers to order and pay for necessities without too much social interaction, creating self-service technology, reducing interaction between people.
How can smart thermometers reduce risk of transmission?
In hopes to reduce the amount of contact between people due to the current epidemic, innovators are rolling out technology that has an infrared thermometer. These thermometers can determine what temperature an object or person is without having to touch them, allowing locations to reduce exposure to the virus.
These machines are usually height-adjustable, designed to either be wall-mounted or freestanding. They also have a face recognition camera, thereby allowing tracking and contact tracing to be more straightforward.
Infinity Core’s new Thermic Smart AI Facial Recognition Temperature Scanner System is one such example of a contactless thermometer. The system is capable of taking temperature through infrared, reducing the necessary amount of contact between people. Coupled with Its face recognition technology and smart attendance tracking system it is incredibly useful and efficient for businesses and organisations. With smart thermometer systems like Thermic, businesses are now safer and healthier environments. Want to learn more about this smart thermometer system? Visit thermic.sg to find out more!
Touch-Free Vending Machines Changing The Game
The recent virus outbreak has highlighted the need to clean hands regularly, as well as practising proper respiratory etiquette. The World Health Organisation has even advised people to frequently wash their hands with either alcohol-based hand sanitizers or soap and water.
As such, many companies and public places now have hand sanitizers and soap to clean hands. However, refilling these bottles can be a task due to the increase in usage. There still lies a chance that someone with the virus has already touched and infected the bottle.
To help with this, touch-free hand sanitizer machines have been introduced to the market. They are made to be cashless too, reducing the amount of contact made. Some machines are designed to be either freestanding or wall-mounted with a display screen. The digital screen can be designed to be touchscreen or non-touchscreen. Kiosk operators can insert live RSS feeds, websites, slide shows on the screen, this way, the machines can also be teaching proper sanitation etiquette.
There are also various sorts of vending machines that can dispense face masks, protective masks, wipes and disinfectants in public places. These machines can be permanently installed in a location and can continue to serve people even after this pandemic.
These vending machines can be customised as well so that they can provide an interactive and engaging experience, as well as teach users.
How can Mobile Application help track people?
In South Korea, the government has developed and deployed “self-health check” mobile applications to keep track of foreign visitors. Instead of blocking or implementing travel bans, the government is choosing to use this to monitor infections. Health authorities have also developed a separate application to track people under quarantine. The application has already been downloaded more than 60,000 times and has a usage rate of at least 90 per cent.
Large companies can look to developing mobile applications like these for internal usage as this was, they can keep track of employees that are feeling ill or sick.
Singapore also has an application called TraceTogether that is designed to use Bluetooth for contact tracking. It will track when users are close to one another, and if a user gets sick, the government will be able to conduct contact tracing efficiently through the application data.
Businesses can draw inspiration from applications like TraceTogether and implement it in their own. Business and organisation can create applications like these to track attendance within their own companies. Also, they could utilise the technology and apply it in other ways, such as introducing virtual working spaces and collaboration applications, increasing productivity and efficiency, at the same time, reducing the amount of unnecessary contact.
